|Counseling Information||Attention all Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors, please connect with your school counselor to discuss courses for the 22-23 school year.
Who is my counselor?
|Panther Items for Sale||In addition to HHS water bottles and masks, we now have Panther letterman jackets for sale. Please see the attached order forms if you would like to purchase. Stop by the main office for further details.|
|Attendance||Tomorrow is our 147th day of school and attendance matters. If you missed 14 days of school so far, you are considered chronically absent. Once you are labeled Chronically Absent, parents may be referred to the court system for not sending their child to school. Please bring in a doctor’s note if you have any unexcused absences and remember to come to school every day!
Also, if you complete work during a quarantine, contact the Main Office to update your attendance. HHS is currently at 29% absenteeism. Remember, if you do not feel well, please call the Main Office and stay home to prevent others from being sick. Thanks for your assistance!
|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.|

We encourage everyone to support our student-athletes and view the VHSL schedule for this week.
