ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMS

ATTENTION AP STUDENTS: The deadline to avoid late fees for Advanced Placement registration is quickly approaching. Be sure to register by November 1. All registrations after November 2 carry a late fee. Any registration after November 15 will include the mandatory College Board $40.00 fee. Please plan accordingly. Here is the link to the high school AP Page where you can find registration information: HHHS ADVANCED PLACEMENT PAGE


A reminder that students must also register for the College Board AP site using the join code they have received from their teacher. This guarantees their test.

HALLOWEEN HOMECOMING SOCIAL

Like many schools in our local area, we will hold an outdoor event so that we can provide ALL students an opportunity to attend. We would be significantly limited in a traditional indoor event. Based on the time of year, we will be turning the event into a Halloween Homecoming Social event. Please see the information below for details surrounding the event.


Friday, October 29th from 6:30-9:00 pm.

Location: This will be an outside dance held at Steinly Stadium.

Dress Code: “Dress for Weather Conditions / Temperature”. Absolutely NO high heels of any kind will be permitted, only flat sole shoes. Students are encouraged to wear appropriate Halloween costumes should they choose; however, they must not wear masks that cover their whole face.

Weather Conditions: If poor weather is forecasted, the dance will be canceled and we will look for another day. If feasible, that date will be the following night (October 30).

Guests: There will be NO OUTSIDE GUESTS ALLOWED.

Ticket Cost: Tickets will be $15.00 each and will be sold during lunches. For students who have paid their activity fee, the cost is $10.00. Tickets will go on sale beginning Monday, October 18th.

Ticket Purchase: Each student can only purchase one ticket.

Masking: Masks are recommended; however, since it is an outside dance, they are not required. Remember, once you are in the dance you must stay because once you leave, there is no re-admittance.

CLASS ACTIVITY FEES

Class fees are due TODAY!

MASKING

It is important that students remained masked unless they are eating lunch. It is also important that students mask appropriately (masks over their nose and mouth). We recognize the inconvenience this is for everyone. However, there are guidelines that must be followed. Most of our student population is doing a great job with this and needs very little prompting or redirection. Please have a conversation with your high schooler regarding the importance of following this guideline.

VETERAN'S DAY CELEBRATION

The high school will host our first annual Veteran's Day Tribute. On November 11, 2021, from 9:15 am-10:00 am, we will recognize military veterans from all branches of the armed forces celebrating their commitment and dedication. This is an outdoor event that will take place at the front of the high school. Please take a look at the flyer below with QR code for registration information - this registration is for an HHHS student to register with a veteran they would like to honor.
