Back to School Information
August 4, 2021
Dear HHS Students and Parents/Guardians,
I am honored to welcome you into a new school year! High school is an exciting time in the lives of students and their families, and it is truly a privilege for our high school team to be part of the growth and development of the students in this unique community. We celebrate a culture of excellence in all our endeavors, both inside and outside the classroom. Our desire to help students discover new interests and prepare for areas they may want to pursue after leaving the halls of HHS will always remain at the forefront of our mission.
As we progress through the school year, please reach out to our staff so we can collaborate in a pro-active effort to ensure any questions or issues are resolved as soon as possible. I am truly excited to get the 2021-2022 school year started, and I look forward to working with all of you. If you have any questions, would like more information, or would like to schedule an appointment with me, please feel free to call the high school office at (406) 375-6060.
