IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION: PLEASE READ
Please see information regarding Course Selections for the 2021-2022 school year below. It is important that all students complete this by February 18. Students who do not complete this will have schedules filled by counselors beginning on February 19. Thank you for your attention to this as we prepare for the 2021-22 school year.
On February 2nd – 18th Course Selections will be open for students to be able to select classes for the 2021-22 school year. All materials and resources that students will need to make course selections are available on our website at https://hhs.canyonsdistrict.org/course-request-2/. On the website, students can select one of two options, in-person or online learning. Once students have selected their learning option, they can make course selections through the appropriate links. We suggest you start with Husky Fair and read through the power point grade presentations. After you have all of the information you will need to accurately register, the class choice links are available at the bottom of the page. Finally, there is a Frequently Asked Questions page at the bottom. In addition, HHS counselors will be presenting to students specific instructions on course selections in classes. If your questions are not answered here please call your counselor.
Spring Parent Teacher Conferences:
Parent-Teacher conferences are here again. A great time to virtually meet with teachers. Conferences are on February 23rd (from 3:30-7:30 p.m.) and February 24th (from 3:30-7:00). Similar to the Fall Conferences, we are holding our Parent-Teacher Conferences virtually using Zoom. Look for the Google Docs link next week in Husky Strong.
UHSAA Athletic Participation Guideline:
If a student participates in a complete season of a UHSAA sanctioned sport and the school determines the sport aligns with the course standards, the school may award the student 0.50 units of PE credit. If the student completes an additional season with a different sport and the school determines the sport aligns with course standards, the school may award the student another 0.5 units of PE credit. A maximum of 1.0 credit can be earned by participating in a sport outside of a student’s regular class schedule. UHSAA athletic participation may be awarded for Participation Skills and Techniques and/or Individual Lifetime Activities (PST and PE Elective). If PST and PE Elective are already completed, credit can be applied to general elective credit. Athletic participation credit does not apply to Fitness for Life/Lifetime Fitness credit.
