WINTER IS COMING
The first official day of winter is December 21 (the Winter Solstice), which is a few weeks away. However, with temperatures dropping, the snow flurries in the air yesterday, and the first rumblings by students about snow days, certainly means that winter is here for the high school.
THE 2ND MARKING PERIOD
ECAT STUDENT ADJUSTMENT
As a reminder, AM ECAT students are required to arrive at HHHS prior to 11:20 am. Those students are expected to be in 3C HATS on time. Students attending PM ECAT are required to remain in the building until 10:45 am, which is the end of 3A HATS.
** Beginning on Monday, 12/6, AM Tech students will be required to sign out when they are leaving the building, and PM Tech students will be required to sign in when they arrive from EASTERN. This will assist ECAT and the HHHS to collaborate on student attendance more effectively. Sign-in sheets will be posted at the attendance window in the main lobby.
