Thank You Parents!

Parents, we had a great first week of school! Thank your for your support and for raising such respectful young people. Thank you also for making the supply donation of $30. Donations were up this year for the first time in several years, and everything we collect goes directly to teachers to purchase classroom instructional supplies.

Changes in the Cafeteria

Breakfast and lunch will not longer be provided free of charge for every student. Only students who meet the federal free/reduced lunch guidelines will receive free or reduced rate meals.

Final Exam Exemption Policy Change

The final exam exemption policy has changed for 2022-23. Exemptions from Fall (December 19-20) and Spring (May 25-26) will once again be based on unexcused absences and grades in each course. Since exemptions will be based on unexcused absences, it will be very important to send in notes to excuse absences. Notes should be turned in to the main office attendance clerk (Cathy Nix) within 3 days of the absences from school.

Students may exempt finals if:

3 unexcused absences with an A in the course

2 unexcused absences with a B in the course

1 unexcused absence with a C in the course

0 unexcused absences with a D in the course

Looking for a Job?

HHS has several open positions for special education paraprofessionals. It's a great job for parents who would like to have the same schedule as their children. If you are interested, please send your resume to Mr. Bradford at
