  1. Make students feel as welcome and at home with you as their Loreto families did with them!
  2. Parents/siblings may attend any event, but they may also drop students off. Chaperones will be present at all events.  If parents or families plan to attend an event, simply let the contact person know so that numbers can be accounted for.  For some activities, there may not be room for siblings to participate.  Siblings participating must be accompanied by parent.
  3. HBSCA will pay for student activities for all students, with the exception of Disneyland. For Disneyland, HBSCA will only pay for tickets for Loreto Students. Parents and any additional siblings are responsible for all their own costs.
  4. HBSCA is a volunteer organization and parent assistance in planning and implementing activities, especially is expected and appreciated!
