A Welcome Back Note from the Administration
We have added many new staff members, and they have learned what it means to be a Brickie and what makes our students so special. Our administration and staff have attended numerous professional development conferences in the hopes that they can learn ways to better serve the students at HHS. We have learned about school safety, social and emotional learning, and the importance of kindness.
Our Brickies are dreamers, makers, and innovators. They are the future, and we can't wait to help them reach their potential. We look forward to serving them this year-whether it is helping freshmen get acclimated to high school or helping seniors fill out their FAFSA, apply to college, or learn what is needed to get an apprenticeship in one of the trades. No matter what they need, the HHS administration is here to help Brickies in any way they can.
We look forward to an exciting year while we watch our Brickies work, work, work.

Business students create SWOT analysis
Vaccinations- All students should be up to date on their vaccinations. Indiana state law requires you to have up to date immunizations. If you have any questions or concerns about the new school year 2019-20 requirements, please contact your school nurse.
Health Conditions- If your student has a specific health condition or needs special care during the school day such as medication, treatments, or monitoring, please inform your school nurse and provide your nurse with a care plan. Individual health care plans help keep your student safe and healthy.
Sick students- Please keep all sick children home from school- this includes fever greater than 100 degrees, vomiting or diarrhea. If you are unsure, please call your healthcare provider or school nurse for advice. Please do not send your student to school and instruct them to go directly to the nurse before the school day begins. If your student is sick, please follow the call off procedures. Again, if you have any questions or concerns please contact your school nurse.
Head Lice- It’s that time of year where our students break out their coats, scarves and hats. Please encourage your child not to share such items as hats, scarves, brushes or any personal items. Lice is not a danger to your child’s health, it is simply an annoying problem that comes around this time of year, so no need to panic. Please know that anyone and everyone can get lice. Getting lice has nothing to do with you being clean or dirty, it only has to do with the fact that you are human. It is very important to check your family for lice this time of year regularly. If you find any live lice or eggs, it is absolutely necessary to treat each “infected” person, but more importantly, you must notify the school so that we can effectively and confidentially assist you with monitoring. The school nurse can assist you with proper treatment options as well as identify and demonstrate for you what to do.
CLOTHING- Please make sure your student has an extra change of clothing in his/her backpack incase needed for unseen circumstances that may arise during the school day.
If you have any questions, please call your school nurse or visit our school web page at http://www.hobart.k12.in.us for more information on student health, school forms, and other helpful links
