Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

Changes are upon us. Starting Monday, March 16th, all physical education classes will be held in our new field house. Our new gym will open up to students and classes on April 13th. The current gym will be dismantled over spring break. These changes will bring new walking routes, changes in student procedures/rules in physical education classes, cleaning out P.E. lockers, increased student parking and a new entrance into HHS off of 9th East. See map in PDF version here.

Locker Clean Out:

Students will be required to have P.E. lockers cleaned out before the end of day on Thursday. Remaining items left in lockers will be bagged and available for one week before items are donated to shelters.

Walking Route:

With physical education classes moving to our new facilities on Monday the 16th, students will need to exit the school in the cafeteria and walk north around the new gym, head east down the sidewalk into the field house. When our new gym opens on April 13th, students will still exit the school using the cafeteria doors and walk north to the gym for physical education classes and other activities.
The Traditional east doors of HHS will only be used to exit during emergencies moving forward.

Parking & New Entrance:

50 more parking stalls will open in front of the new gym. The back parking lot and the new parking are connected. HHS may now be entered and exited off 9th east. Cars may turn left and right into and out of HHS. The light is on South Union Ave. Patrons and students, starting Monday, March 16th, may enter off 9th east and drive through the property over to 7th east and vice versa.

P.E. Class Changes:

Students will not be required to dress for P.E. until the new gym and locker rooms are available to use on April 13th. Teachers will still be teaching curriculum concepts and doing light activities, as the students do not have shower access for a few weeks.

The 2020 Census is Coming — Make Sure You’re Counted

School lunches. Special education grants. Training for teachers and support for families in need. Census results, and the programs and resources tied to them, affect our students every day. A complete headcount of everyone living in the country, the census only comes around once every 10 years, and the time to be counted — and to make sure your community receives its fair share of federal funding for schools — is coming. This month, every person living in Utah will take part in the 2020 Census. It’s possible to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail starting March 12. It takes only 10 minutes, the information is kept strictly confidential, and if you don’t have access to a computer at home, we can help. Join us for “We Count Week,” March 16-20, and come complete the census at one of four Canyons District-sponsored Open House events. https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/12447-the-2020-census-is-coming-make-sure-you-re-counted

Free Districtwide Parent Presentation on Dangers of Sexting

Michelle Busch-Upwall presenting on the Dangers of Sexting – Jan 15, 2020 at 7pm in the Indian Hills Kiva

Did you know Utah was one of the first states to enact laws to protect and provide hope to victims of sextortion? Parents, don’t miss this free seminar featuring Michelle Busch-Upwall from the Utah Attorney General’s Office. Busch-Upwall, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce, will discuss ways for parents to safeguard their children from sexting and a form of blackmail known as sextortion while offering tips for what to do if you encounter it. The Jan. 15 event will be held at Indian Hills Middle, but is open to all Canyons District parents and high-school-age students. Families are advised to leave younger children at home due to the mature nature of the presentation. Certificated Canyons District employees who attend the event are eligible for one hour of credit toward re-licensure.
