... about Prep's 2018 College Fair!

Dear Prep Community,

Yesterday's report from the Governor was a clear statement that Florence was no longer a threat to Beaufort County and government offices and schools would re-open on Wednesday.

Obviously this announcement sent every school administrator in our area scrambling. I can only assume the Governor did not speak with his public school administration before making this decision as we now know the public schools could not open because they did not have enough available teachers or bus drivers.

I spoke with other schools in our area and their intent was to return on Thursday provided they had the required staffing. My administration was able to contact our teachers who resoundingly said they were ready and able to return as needed which prompted my communication that we would open for class on Thursday. My communication was sent as quickly as possible in an effort to contact families as close to the noon mandatory evacuation time as possible.

As I am sure most of you are aware, the forecast changed significantly yesterday afternoon with predictions having Florence stall as it reaches the North Carolina coast before it turns to the southwest. Current storm tracks and predictions are varied but it seems Hilton Head will still experience tropical storm force winds on Friday that are expected to possibly increase over the weekend.

With this dramatic change in the predicted path it is only prudent to revert back to our initial plan of not having school the remainder of this week. I am sorry for the confusion and stress this storm has caused. I do my best to work with the information we have at the time and the collaborative efforts of our school community.

As I mentioned in my previous e-mails, every family must do what they feel is best for their safety regardless of what the government or school announces.

Stay Safe,

Jon Hopman

... about School Closed the Remainder of the Week


Hilton Head Preparatory School opens the new school year with the Upper School performance of Jim Leonard, Jr.'s "The Diviners". The fictional town of Zion, Indiana during the 1930s/Great Depression era will come alive when Prep's fall show runs at the Hilton Head Preparatory School Main Street Theatre September 13-16, 2018.

Hilton Head Prep's first show of the 2018-2019 season once again has the directorial expertise of Peggy Trecker White at the helm. Peggy has directed Prep shows for four seasons including "Les Miserables", "Almost, Maine", "Little Mermaid", "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Godspell" and has helped solidify Hilton Head Prep's strong performing arts reputation. She brings a wealth of experience as Director for five summers at the Intermediate Musical Theatre Department at Interlochen Center for the Arts. She is a founding member of Lean Ensemble Theatre where she has directed and starred in several of their shows and has traveled and worked in theatre all over the world.

"The Diviners" takes place in rural Indiana during the Depression and is centered around the relationship between a young boy blessed with the magical ability to divine water and a former preacher who comes to town looking for work. The ex-preacher soon realizes his real purpose is to help the boy deal with the one traumatic experience that has caused him to fear the very water he divines.

Trecker White selected "The Diviners" because, as she says, "it is a beautiful story about relationships, faith, and love; all heartwarming things that anyone can relate to. It's an honor to work on a piece of theatre that has such depth."

This show is in one word, heartwarming. The way the town sees Buddy, the young boy, as their blessing and the nurturing way CC, the ex-preacher, cares for the boy, captures a sense of community and togetherness that is unique. Audience members will walk out of the theater being truly touched by the show.

This show also follows Prep's tradition of including students of all ages in the production even though it is billed as an upper school performance. The cast includes some seasoned Prep performing arts students as well as some newcomers. Be sure to mark your calendar to see all these talented students again in Prep's winter show, "Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat" February 13-17, 2018.

Performances are September 13-16 at the Hilton Head Preparatory School Main Street Theatre, Thursday - Saturday at 7:30 pm, and a matinee on Sunday at 2 pm. For tickets and information, visit or call 843-715-8510. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door.
