If you have not already, please remember to change your clocks back one hour today to adjust for daylight savings time.
Monday begins the first day of Quarter 2. Your child's schedule is on PowerSchool and they are expected to log in to their new courses through Canvas tomorrow. If you have any questions about your child's schedule, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your child is carrying an "I" (Incomplete) from Quarter 1, an Academic Intervention class has been added to their schedule in addition to their new Quarter 2 classes. Attendance is mandatory at this class until all incompletes are cleared. It is also expected that any student who holds an incomplete in any course is actively taking advantage of teachers' online office hours and resources we have put in place to support their academic efforts. Students who do not make an effort to clear their incompletes are at risk of failing the course.
Senior pictures are being taken this week on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Each senior has been given a specific time slot and must arrive on time as assigned. Seniors must have a mask on, temperatures will be taken, and all social distance protocols will be followed. Please see our website for a link to the schedule and order form to purchase pictures.
This Tuesday, November 3, in honor of election day, HSHMC will be observing "A Day of Civic Engagement." We are very excited about this important and historic day. Rather than attending their regular classes on Tuesday, students will be invited to engage in a series of Zoom sessions related to the history of voting and discussions on various current propositions on the 2020 ballot. The schedule for the sessions and the Zoom links will be made available to students in advance of our very special day.
It is open enrollment time at HSHMC. We are now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year for grades 9-12. This open enrollment period ends February 1, 2021. Siblings of current HSHMC students should submit their applications NOW! Please go to our website at www.hshmc.org to apply directly online. And, if you know other families interested in applying, we appreciate you letting them know as well.
If you have questions, or just want to touch base, I am holding Principal's Office Hours via Zoom at 9:00 am on Tuesday and Thursday this week. The Zoom link is available on our website. I can also be reached by email anytime at email@example.com.
Have a good week. Thank you!
