    Hey Hermosa Hornets!!!
    Here is the buzz going around our school. 
    • **************************************************************************************************************************


      Dear Parent/Guardian We have a backpack program available at Hermosa School. The program is designed to provide non-perishable food every Thursday to children that would benefit from supplemental nourishment over the weekend. Bags will be dispensed in a discreet and caring manner. There is no cost associated with this program. If you wish for your child to participate in the program please call or email Sonja Tennyson at Sonja.tennyson@k12.sd.us or (605) 255—4345 and let her know you want your child to participate in the Blessings in a Backpack program. Please include your child’s name and grade level.

    • Add a veggie, fruit, and milk for Free.
