HUHS will be hosting it's annual winter blood drive on Wednesday, February 27th! 
A single blood donation can save as many as three lives! HUHS blood drives are open to all students, staff, and community members so visit
Students must be 16 years old to donate with parent or guardian permission. Parent permission  FORM or in Mrs. Zimpel's room. 

On Wednesday, April 24, 2019 , Hartford Union High School will be hosting a Focus on Connections Event - a financial simulation for 
all HUHS Junior students.   Based upon individual career selections researched in class, students will each receive a paycheck consistent with their career choice and will be responsible for making financial decisions regarding typical monthly living expenses.  The "reality check" for many students is the realization of the expenses their salary will or will not meet.
 
For this event, we need many business and community volunteers helping us simulate the most realistic day possible, and we would also love to have parent volunteers of Juniors. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided for volunteers.
 
Would be willing to help?
 
The event runs from 7:00 AM until 2:30 PM. You could help in the morning (7:00 AM - 10:30 AM) or afternoon (11:00 AM - 2:30 PM) or for the entire day. Any help would be much appreciated.

Please contact  beth.hermann@huhs.org if this is something you would be willing to do and I will give you more information about this event. You may email me or call 262-670-3208.
We would really appreciate any help you are able to provide!

2019-2020 Course Selection
 
February 25 Homeroom:

Questions or concerns regarding course selection should be directed to the student's counselor.

Seniors Attending a University of Wisconsin School in the Fall
After students are admitted to a UW campus, they are invited to participate in Regional Placement Testing.  Students find out their appropriate level of math, English, and foreign language to begin in college as a result of taking the tests.
Students register online  for Regional Placement Testing beginning February 1. Regional Placement Testing allows students to take the test close to where they live so they don't need to travel to the campus they'd like to attend. Also, students need to register for only one placement test even if they have been admitted to different UW campuses or if they change their mind about which UW campus to attend. All UW campuses have access to each student's scores.
Students should be intentional when selecting a site and date. Students can change or cancel their registrations. However, it's often difficult to do so because popular sites fill quickly and changing is impossible after registration deadlines pass.
There are two options for taking the placement tests. Students may register for paper exams or computer-based exams. The exams, questions, and timing are the same, although there are additional fees for the computer-based exam. The computer-based exam provides an on-screen scientific calculator-no other calculator will be allowed during the computer-based exam.
A driver's license, state-issued ID, passport, or high school ID containing name and photo may serve as the student's identification at the testing site.
This is the schedule for testing day (all times are approximate):
Seating, orientation, and math testing
8:00 - 10:00 a.m.
Break 
10:00 - 10:10 a.m.
English testing 
10:10 - 11:50 a.m.
Break 
11:50 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Dismissal of those not taking a foreign language test, followed by foreign language testing
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

Placement test scores are shared with students when they participate in their summer orientation and registration session. It's important for students to take the placement tests in the spring so that the results are ready for summer registration, since some campuses do not allow students to register for classes until they can see the test results.

2019 Flu Information and Guide for Parents -  Flu season is again upon us.  Here are some guidelines for you about the flu including prevention, symptoms, treatments and other information provided by the CDC.   

Is it a cold or is it the flu, here is a helpful video for you:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PZLc6Ys1fQ

The Health Room is located in the Attendance Office and is staffed Monday through Friday from 6:45 a.m. until 3:15 p.m during the school year.

Please, remind your student that they always need to come to the Health Room with any health concerns and to not call, e-mail or text home to leave school.  The Health Technician will always call the parent or emergency contact to arrange for the student to leave school when ill.  

If a student talks, e-mails or texts their parent on their own and then they leave school without contacting a staff member and receiving a permit to leave, they are considered truant from school.

Swimming
Few athletes can take the pressure of their first swim at the WIAA State Meet and turn it into record making success. But sophomore Dylan Webb proved he is one of those few on Saturday. He brought home a new school record in the 50 Free (breaking the record he set in December) and a medal for 6th place in the 100 Breast.

In his 50 Free, Dylan dropped time off his Sectional winning race of Feb. 9 and swam a personal best of 21.49 seconds. He finished tied for 15th in the fastest race of the day, where every hundredth of a second counts.

In his 100 Breast, he was on fire from the start, strong in technique, and solid on each turn. He dropped an impressive 1.05 seconds from his best time (from Sectionals just last weekend) to 58.73 and moved up to 6th place.

Overall, Hartford-Slinger ranked 25th in the State, just from Dylan's scores.

2018-2019 Information

 


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.
