Horizon High School News


Mrs. Craft's Desk

We are in our second week of this semester. I want to welcome our 20 new students! Open campus lunch privileges are given to the juniors and seniors. Students MUST earn the privilege of leaving the building during lunch. They must be passing all classes, no more than 3 tardies in a week and no office referrals.. I am asking parents not to call their student out for lunch if they do not earn the privilege.

Thank you for your support.

Our most important goal for students at Horizon is improved attendance. Attendance is mandatory in order for students to earn credit toward graduation. For the month of October the daily average attendance was 82.88%. We like to see this percentage over 90%. Parents, please encourage your son/daughter to attend school regularly. Congratulations to the following students who have had two or less absences for the month of October.
