It’s time to start working on the 2019-20 school year! There are a few items that you may wish to share with your current 8th grade students and families to ensure a smooth transition to HCHS.
• The State of Kentucky has established new graduation requirements beginning with the Class of 2023. We will have a parent meeting on Thursday, January 24 at 5:30 p.m. in the HCHS Cafeteria to explain these new requirements and how it impacts the class of 2023.
• Our middle school student/parent 2019-20 scheduling night will be on Thursday, February 7, 2019 from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. in the HCHS Auditorium. The Student Ambassador candidates will give a presentation about HCHS and then the guidance counselors will discuss the scheduling process, graduation requirements, courses, and pathways at HCHS.
• Unit Request for Sibling forms will be delivered to all middle schools this afternoon. Please remind students to complete the form and turn it in if they currently have a sibling at HCHS. Parents have the option of placing their current 8th grader in the same unit as the sibling or a different unit. Forms are due February 1 to HCHS Student Service Office or to middle school guidance counselors. Unit placements will be ready for you to share with students the Friday before Spring break.
• Summer school registration for Health/PE and Technology & Finance (formerly known as Computer Applications) will begin on Monday, April 8th. Parents may register their children at Student Services at HCHS. All initial credit courses are $150 with a few places held for students that qualify for free/reduced lunch. Classes will quickly fill so please encourage families to register soon.
• 2019-20 scheduling will occur at NMS on Friday, February 1st and with SMS on Tuesday, February 5th. All students will need access to Infinite Campus to complete the process. Holy Name date will be set soon.
I’m excited to work with all of you this year to transition students to HCHS! Please feel free to contact me anytime I can be of assistance.
