Hello HHS,

Here we are again, another week of 100% virtual learning. It is certainly not what we want, but it is what we have to do at this time since we are Red on the WVDE map. I encourage everyone to continue to follow the health guidelines as we fight through this and hopefully we can get our students back to school soon...we miss them!!!

Please remember, communication and effort is the key during virtual learning. Students, you must stay connected with all your teachers through Schoology, emails, and TEAMS. Our teachers are here to help you the best they can, but you must communicate with them and do the work that is provided the best you can. If you need help, ask for it!

Unfortunately, this Saturday's ACT testing scheduled at HHS has been canceled due to our current RED status. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Mihalko through email or schoology.
