HHS Water Bottles Did you know that we installed four bottle filling stations with filters to HHS?  In addition, we also have blue and red Hermitage Panther water bottles on sale for only $5! Hydration is key!
Masks Class of 2023!  Your masks are in and are on sale for only $10!  Stop by the main office to purchase!
Attendance Attendance matters.  Did you know that students can not miss more than 10% of the instructional days?  If you missed 6 days of school so far, you are considered chronically absent.  Please bring in a doctor’s note if you have unexcused absences and remember to come to school every day!  HHS is currently at 32% absenteeism so far.  Thanks for your assistance!
Winter Band Concert Please join us Thursday at 7:00 for our Winter Concert!  Our students have worked tirelessly to prepare for this event and we hope to see you there!
Traffic Safety Plan As we attempt to maintain safety and minimize congregating of students, please remember the following:

  • Student drop off and pick up is in the Stadium Parking lot and students enter through Music Ramp doors
  • Bus Riders enter through the Bus ramp doors
Deliveries This is a reminder that we are not accepting any food deliveries at HHS during the school day. This includes DoorDash, GrubHub, and Parent drop off.  All students eat for free and we are unable to determine the safety of the contents of items dropped off for students.  Thanks for understanding and working with us.
Clinic Information Seniors!  Please provide your Meningococcal vaccine information to Nurse Tyree as soon as possible!
