Seniors--Your attendance MATTERS!

Remember that you are only allowed 9 unexcused absences before you will lose credit. If you know that you will be out, make sure that your parent calls to excuse you WITHIN 3 DAYS! After 3 days, it cannot be excused. To call, call: 321-3200.

Fines and Fees

You MUST pay your outstanding fines to the Bookkeeper, Angel Baxter as soon as possible! If you are not sure what you owe, see Ms. Baxter before/after school or at lunch!

Cap and Gown

Have you paid for your Cap and Gown yet? The time is now, the price will only continue to go up! Go to now!

College Prep

If you haven’t yet decided which schools you want to apply to—get on it! When the school year hits you will be busy! Once you have an idea of colleges you are interested in:

  • Go to the school’s website (usually you can find it with a simple Google search)

  • Find out the school’s admission requirements—do they make all students have a foreign language? Do they require a certain GPA? Schools want you to know what it takes to get in—find out!

  • Check to see if the school offers a degree you are interested in (not all schools are the same, and you can’t assume they will offer the same degrees).

  • Find out when their application is due. (Hint: University of California schools usually have deadlines in early fall!)

  • Do they require the ACT or SAT, and if so, do they require a certain score?

Another good resource for college:


As a student at Hug, you get 2 free waivers to take the ACT and SAT for free each. In order to get a waiver, you must come see Mrs. Lazear or Ms. Sweder. If you use a waiver and don’t take the test, YOU are financially responsible for paying to change the date to another ACT or SAT date.

TUESDAYS in the Career Center after school Mrs. Lazear and Ms. Sweder will be available with waivers to help you sign up! Sign up quick before spaces fill up!

The next ACT you can sign up for is Saturday, February 6th. The deadline to sign up for this test is January 8th.

The first SAT date will be Saturday, January 23rd. The deadline for signing up is December 28th.

How do I study?? It is a BIG test, and unlike the HSPE, it is timed.
