Entrance 6 will open at 6:45am M-F.
Student parking lot  Entrance 12 WILL NO LONGER BE OPEN AT ANY TIME.  Students will need to enter through Entrance 1 or 6.

Thank you for your understanding.

New This Year - Grading Changes
Last Monday, the HUHS School Board approved changes to our grading policy for the upcoming school year.  While it will change how teachers post grades, it will also change what students and parents see in Skyward (Student & Family Access).  

As a parent/guardian, you will no longer see 20 grading columns in Skyward.  Instead, there will only be columns for term and mid-term Citizenship grades as well as the Semester 1 & 2 and Semester Exam 1 & 2 academic grades.  The Semester grade columns will be up to date running totals for the entire semester of your student's academic progress. At any point in the semester, you will be able to see what grade your student is currently earning by looking under the Semester 1 or 2 grade column.  As semester grades are the only ones that show up on a student's transcripts, we wanted to avoid the common confusion that students/parents have each year by having multiple mid-term, term, and semester grading columns displayed in Skyward.

You are also able to click on the "Display Options" link at the top of the Gradebook and select which grading columns you would like to see for either semester.  This will allow you to limit the columns that are displayed in the Skyward Gradebook.

Parents/Guardians will still receive email notices at each mid-term and term grading periods and be able to see their student's Progress Report Letter at these intervals (roughly every 4 ½ weeks).  These Progress Reports will be placed in the student's Skyward Student Portfolio and will contain each student's courses and grades earned.

As we will only post academic grades at the end of each semester, Honor Roll will now only be calculated, posted and communicated at these times.  As done in the past, Report Cards will be created and placed in the Student Portfolio at the end of each semester.
Parents/Guardians will also continue to get an additional Progress Report notification if their student earns an academic grade of a D or F or a Citizenship grade of a BA (Basic) or UN (Unsatisfactory) at each grading period (Mid Term and Term), as this will cause the student to lose the open Resource privilege by being assigned to a teacher during the daily Resource Period.

New This Year - Clubs & Activities Online Registration
Starting for the 2018-19 school year, all students wishing to participate in activities, clubs or sports will need to complete the Online Forms through Skyward Family/Student access.  All steps need to be marked as completed including step #8 "SUBMIT SY19 ATHLETIC/CO-CURRICULAR FORMS".  Online Forms only need to be completed once per school year, so if a student participates in a sport as well as a club or activity the Online Forms only need to complete once.

If the student is only participating in an activity or club but will not be participating in a sport, they may mark step 3 complete and do not need to have a Physical Clearance Form completed by their Physician.  

Once the online forms have been completed, the student will then need to pick up an "Orange Card" from the Co-Curricular Office clearing them to participate in their activity or club. Activity/Club organizers will inform students of this change at the first sign up meeting and collect the orange cards before the next regularly scheduled meeting.
Coaches VS Cancer Football Game
The 2018 Coaches vs Cancer Football game between Hartford and Slinger is

Each link is $2.00 and will be linked together to make a chain at the Coaches vs Cancer game on Sept 6th. 100% of the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

Hartford Rotary
Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same  opportunities as other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.

"It was nice to see our No. 1 and No. 2 doubles get back on track after some tough loses and subpar performances."

Hartford-Slinger Swim Team Gets Convincing NSC Victory

The Hartford Union-Slinger girls swimming co-op won 10 events during a North Shore Conference dual against Port Washington on Tuesday.  The team also had a trio of 1-2-3 finishes en route to a 128-41 victory.  Olivia Meinberg won the 200-yard freestyle (2:01.9), while Sarah Alsum was second (2:25.12) and Grace Teske was third (2:28.55).  Irene Wilson won the 200 IM (2:22.61) with Caitlin Simonz second (2:39.57) and Paige Dulski third (2:42.95). Simonz also won the 100 breaststroke (1:16.37) with Maria Graziano second (1:19.88) and Olivia Sweeney third (1:31.34).  Wilson won the 100 butterfly (1:06.2) Meinberg won the 500 freestyle (5:33.73) ahead of Alsum (6:27.92). Alyssa Simonz won the 100 backstroke (1:12.77) and Skylar Bertz was second (1:17.59).  Shayna Krist had two second places - the 50 freestyle (29.46) and the 100 freestyle (1:03.1). she lost the 100 by 0.01 seconds.  The co-op won all three relays - the 200 medley (A. Simonz, C. Simonz, Wilson, Krist) in  2:01.61), the 200 freestyle (Maddy Jacobi, A. Simonz, C. Simonz, Rylie Christnovich) in 1:57.95 and the 400 freestyle (Wilson, Meinberg, Dulski, Jacobi) in 4:04.53.  The co-op's junior varsity team also won, 115-29.


Hartford Union won the field position battle throughout the evening, pounced on a few turnovers and came away with a 49-14 victory Friday at Cedarburg in a North Shore Conference football game.  Never was that more apparent than on the Orioles' final drive of the opening half and first possession of the third quarter, when Hartford (2-0) used short fields to score and take control of what had been a 14-14 game.  "We keep telling our kids, you've got to play physical football, you've got to play intense football, you've got to bring the 'A'-level performance all the time," coach John Redders said, "whether it's practice or in a game."  The Bulldogs tied the score with 94 seconds remaining in the second quarter, but a nice return on a squib kick set Hartford up for success to regain the lead.  Scott Savage, who went for 128 yards and three scores on  16 carries, set the table with a 24-yard run to start the drive. Following an Orioles' penalty, Jacob Frantl put a pass right on the money to Joe Kasperzak for a 36-yard touchdown on a post pattern, which made it 21-14 when AJ Arndt kicked the extra point.  "He's picking up our system  and doing a pretty good job of understanding what we're looking for," Redders said of Frantl, who threw two touchdown passes and added a scoring run. "He kind of settled in, relaxed a little bit."  Click here to read full article
