School Breakfast Information

 School Breakfast Information

As we prepare for the 2016-17 school year, the school lunch department is putting together plans.   In 1993, the state legislature passed a law mandating that a breakfast be available for all students. Participation was low in several buildings. With this in mind, next year we will again offer breakfast in the elementary buildings, but are requesting an exemption for the high school and middle school. If there are any questions or concerns, please contact the School Lunch Director at 865-7242.

Thank you to all students who eat breakfast and lunch with us every day. Your continued support helps us serve nutritional, low-fat, increase fiber meals.

Congratulations to the Class of 2016!

HP Alma Mater

Though we’re but a country high school,
Our name unknown to fame
To our colors we are loyal,
Our heritage we claim;

We defend the gold and purple,
Wherever we may be,
Our hearts forever faithful
To the old school in H.P.


The purple hue is royal,
The gold is pure and fine,
And both are king’s apparel
Ordained by word divine,

Therefore, royal are our colors,
To them we true must be,
To show we love and honor
The old school in H.P.
