Welcome Back HHS,
We are Orange on the WVDE map and the Governor already ordered all schools to be remote learning Monday through Wednesday. So, we will be remote learning Monday through Friday this week in Hampshire County Schools. Students must connect with all their teachers during the week to assure their understanding of assignments posted in Schoology. Teachers will be available per block via TEAMS during school hours for additional instructional support. Students, please take advantage of these opportunities throughout the week.
- Congrats to the following volleyball players for earning All-State honors...Renee Killough (2nd team) and Lainee Selan (Special Honorable Mention)!
- Mr. Hart would like to congratulate Leah Spinks for being accepted to Davis and Elkins College and Cailin Goad for being accepted into the National Honor Society from his Law classes.
This Week at HHS...
From the Counselor's Corner:
1. Students must submit both the PROMISE Scholarship Application and the 2021-2022 FAFSA by March 1, 2021.
2. 2021 seniors should submit the 2021 PROMISE Scholarship application whether they currently have a qualifying ACT/SAT test score or not.
