Happy Monday, Panther Nation! Please read over the events and reminders for the week.
|Safety First||HHS continues to follow all other layers of mitigation strategies listed below:
|HCPS Community Conversation||From the national news to local neighborhoods, we are seeing a surge in violence impacting young people, their families, and communities as a whole. Caring thoughts are no longer enough to heal our heavy hearts; it is time for a solutions-focused conversation.
You are invited to join a team of school, county, public health, and law enforcement leaders for two special town hall meetings, “Together We’ll Heal: A Community Conversation for Peace.”
A panel discussion will focus on the issues facing our community as well as available intervention and support resources. Attendees can be part of the conversation by submitting questions that will guide the discussion.

When: Monday, June 6, 6-7:30 p.m.*

|Attendance||Tomorrow is our 166th day of school and attendance matters. If you missed 16 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 28% 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!

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.|

Hello seniors! It is time to brag!! We need you to send us any and all scholarships that you have received. That includes offers and awards to schools that you are not going to attend but were accepted to. You should be able to print these off from the awards letter the schools sent you.

We need all this information to announce at graduation on June 14!
Students participating in the graduation ceremony MUST attend the MANDATORY practice on Monday, June 13th at 9:30 A.M. We will run through the entire ceremony (for the most part). After rehearsal, students will receive graduation tickets (10), a parking pass, and their tassels. All fees must be paid in order to participate in graduation.
Every human being entering the Siegel Center must have a ticket (including babies). If a student needs more than 10 tickets for graduation, s/he must ask their peers. Hermitage High School cannot offer more than 10 tickets per student. Also, note that tickets will be scanned at the Siegel Center. If anyone makes a duplicate ticket, the first ticket scanned will be the person who is able to enter the Siegel Center. Graduates DO NOT need a ticket.
Parking passes will be available for purchase if families need more than one pass. Parking passes are $7 and will be available for purchase from Monday, June 6th through Friday, June 10th. Please be prepared to either pay with a card or cash. We will take payments in the front office at Hermitage High School.
