Welcome back to 2019!


This is the beginning of our 3rd semester and we welcome 22 new students. I am looking forward to getting to know each of them. Attendance has remained steady and the goal is to have 90% daily attendance. Parents, please encourage your son/daughter to attend school daily in order to earn credit towards graduation. Please call me anytime if you have questions/concerns at 402-715-8468.

Attendance

Our most important goal for students at Horizon is improved attendance. Attendance is mandatory in order for students to earn credit toward graduation. For the month of October the daily average attendance was 80.27%. We like to see this percentage over 90%. Parents, please encourage your son/daughter to attend school regularly. Congratulations to the following students who have had two or less absences for the month of October.
