HHS Seniors and Parents,
I want to thank all of our students for working so hard on getting their assignments turned in this week in preparation for the progress report and class rank calculations. We have seen an increase in student activity which is greatly appreciated.
After the governor’s speech yesterday, we reached out to our prom venue to seek clarification on requirements for having prom. According to the information we received, the venue would have to limit us to 250 individuals, would require that everyone wear a mask, and we would have to maintain a six-foot distance from each other. As you can imagine, these requirements would make for a less than favorable prom atmosphere. As a result of the given circumstances, it is with a heavy heart that I inform you that we will be canceling prom this year. This is a decision that, although many expected, we had hoped to not have to make.
On a brighter note, we are extremely excited to announce that we will have our HHS Senior Sunset on Thursday, May 28th at Falcon Stadium. We value the friendships that our seniors have with one another and also recognize the opportunities that have unexpectedly been taken away from them by the pandemic. Our goal for this event is to provide our seniors a night of fellowship and an additional moment to build memories with each other. Our senior class officers will be sending out specific information soon (including the times). We hope that all of our seniors will be able to join us for this fun and exciting evening!
While this email probably brings a bag of mixed emotions with it, I cannot express to you enough how much we value our seniors and how incredibly proud we are of them. Although we have been forced to make some tough decisions throughout this process, we have made every effort possible to consider their perspective. I hope that all of our seniors truly understand the positive impact they have made on our school and community.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

We would like to remind our students and parents that next Wednesday, May 20th is grade cutoff for the last progress report. Grades will be posted Friday for the last progress report of the school year. It is critical that all of our students complete all assigned assignments for the fourth nine weeks so that their grade is a true reflection of their academic performance. If you are having difficulties with completing your assignments, please reach out to your teacher now, do not wait until Wednesday.
We have received some questions about whether or not a student needs to pass all of their electives or not. The answer to this question varies from course to course and from student to student. It all depends on state requirements, graduation plans, and graduation endorsements. With that said, the most important thing for our students to realize is that, even if the class is not needed, all class grades are reflected on your transcript. Transcripts are used for college acceptance, trade schools, scholarships, etc. and although the class may not be required, a failing grade on the transcript can be detrimental depending on the circumstances. In order for your transcript to reflect all of the hard work and dedication of our students, it is vital that all courses be given equal attention and that all assignments are completed. As a reminder, in order for a student’s fourth nine-week average to not be lower than four points of their third nine week’s grade, students must complete all assignments.
We are only just a couple of weeks from the end of the semester and we are extremely proud of how hard everyone has been working. There is light at the end of the tunnel. If you need any help with your classes, please communicate with your teachers.
Keep up the awesome work!
