New Year and Back To "HS^2 Normal"!
With the New Year upon us, the HS^2 staff and students came back from Winter Break and returned to the "HS^2 Normal". This means we returned to our normal course schedule throughout the week, while also keeping our ever changing "Green Days" on Wednesdays.

With the conclusion of 1st Semester happening on January 21st, the students have a couple of weeks left to finalize any courses that are concluding in order to end with a transcripted grade that reflects their learning best. While some HS^2 courses are ending, any HS^2 all-year-long courses will not have a grade transcripted until the end of the school year!
Upcoming No School Days
January 17 & January 24 - These dates are Campus wide Professional Development days for the staff. Students will have no school on these days.

January 21 - This is an HS^2 ONLY no school day. The HS^2 Staff will be meeting all day to work on school improvement and developement. While HS^2 students will not have any HS^2 course expectations on this day, they still will be required to attend their Legacy courses.
HS^2 Inclement Weather Plan
In case of inclement weather, HS^2 will switch to distance learning rather than having snow days. This document outlines the expectations of students for each class for 2021-22. If a student has a Legacy class, they will follow the instructions outlined by that teacher.
