Welcome to Week Six

This week is not too busy but we do have some very important events.


We have had our Step it Up Assemblies scheduled for Tuesday; however, there are some complications with their website and we will be determining on Monday if we will be able to go on Tuesday. Adam will be letting us know on Monday how we will proceed.


Wednesday is our Scripted Lockdown drill that takes place every fall. Students will practice a lock down and learn what to do and not to do during that time. We hope we never have a real event that requires a lock down but we want our students to be prepared.


Wednesday afternoon is Faculty Meeting at 2:45 in the Library.


Thursday is a Minimum day across the District for Professional Development for staff; therefore, dismissal time will be at noon on Thursday.

Hart High has started a podcast. They have covered a variety of topics. Here is the link if you would like to listen.
