Principal’s Message

Important Registration Information

HHS Registration/Class choices for the 2021-22 school year

On February 2nd – 18th students will need to choose one of two instructional experiences,

In Person Learning or Online Learning for the 2021-22 school year.  To help you make this decision we have included a list of classes that will be offered for students to take online next year at the end of this message.  On February 2ndinstructions will be sent on how to sign up for in-person or online learning.  Please read through the following information.  If your questions are not answered here please call your counselor.

Which learning experience should I choose?

There is no substitute for in person instruction.  For families who feel at risk due to COVID it is understood you will need to make a choice that best fits your circumstances.  As families consider this choice you should understand that for a school to remain open, we must stay below 1% of our population who have tested positive for COVID.  This is about 20 students.  Our school record of low transmission rates speaks for itself. 

Am I guaranteed the classes I sign up for?

No, for online classes to carry, a certain number of students will need to choose the online option.  For example, if we have a small number of students who want an online honors English class and the number is too small for us to offer the class students will need to enroll in a non-honors class.  CVHS classes may also work as options if HHS can’t offer the class. 

Can I attend some classes in person and some online?

No, we will have no hybrid option unless the student uses the release time concept and takes a CVHS or other online class from another school. 

Are all classes available online?

No, however we offer enough in each grade level that students can create a full schedule of online classes.  A list of class offerings is included at the end of this message. 

What are expectations for online class?

Online classes will take daily attendance and follow all aspects of our school-wide disclosure. 

What should I do if I am a IB or Special Education student?

You will have options for online course selections as an IB or Special Education students.  If you are an IB student, please look for additional information from Mr. Olsen.  For Special Education students, your case manager will reach out to you to schedule your classes.

What will happen when and if COVID requires school to adjust to remote learning?

If HHS has 1% of their population or more who are active carriers of COVID, HHS will move to remote learning where all classes are online. 

What will happen if COVID restriction are lifted from the state?

All online classes will be turned into in person classes and students will be expected to come to school.

What will happen if I need to change my learning experience during the year?

If students want to change from in person to online or online to in person, they will be placed on a waiting list.  When spots open up the family will be contacted to see if they want to make the change. 

Can I take online classes that are not offered by HHS?

Yes, many options exist for online classes.  However, keep in mind if HHS shifts to all in person classes due to no COVID restrictions students will need to follow that schedule.
