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.
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.
