Bells and PA System
When we arrived to school Monday of this week, we realized that the bell and PA systems were not working.  Our Buildings and Grounds maintenance crew worked diligently to find the cause but could not.  We contacted our vendor, Simplex, but they were not able to fix the problem remotely, and could not send out a technician until Wednesday.  When the technician was on site, he diagnosed the problem:  two of the four power supply units short circuited, causing the entire systems to lock up.  The two units were 23+ years old and will be replaced.  The other two that did not fail had been replaced previously.  As of Thursday, we had 75% power to both systems, and were awaiting a second, new power unit Friday.  The units should both be operational by Monday morning.  On a positive note:  our students were terrific during the week! 
ATTN: Current sophomores & juniors interested in a career in the health field.

Froedtert is offering a Healthcare Career Academy for eight students this summer at the St. Joseph's Hospital Campus.  This is a two week event from 8:00 am - noon starting Monday July 8 through Friday July 19.  

Students will have the opportunity to get hands on experience in numerous medical departments, including surgery, dietetics, imaging, cancer center, cardiac rehab, ICU, birthing, and more.  Students will attend a department training/expectation meeting right away and then spend the rest of the morning in a specific department/area gaining real-world experience.  

Students are required to attend ALL days of the 2-week rotation.

If interested or if you have any questions see one of the PLTW Science teachers (Mr. Arnholt, Ms. Axford, Ms. McClain) or Mr. Duhr.  Applications may be picked up from one of the PLTW teachers or in Mr. Duhr's Office.

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
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.
10:00 - 10:10 a.m.
English testing 
10:10 - 11:50 a.m.
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.

The Greater Milwaukee College Workshop
The Greater Milwaukee College Workshop is a free event for high school students and their parents. Attendees can pick from 12+ presentations covering all aspects of planning for college. They will learn from the experts about financial aid, ACT prep, essays, college admissions, and college athletics. Check out the website and details for the Sunday, March 3, workshop at Concordia University.

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.

Attention Seniors: EVER Y student at HUHS has health/immunization records in the Health Office located in the Attendance Office.  Because you are graduating, HUHS no longer needs these records and you will need them for college, jobs or travel. 
Please be sure to stop in to the Health Office to pick up your records as soon as possible.  Get a treat while supplies last!

Spread the Word Campaign!

For the past 10 years, Spread the Word to End the Word has started the conversation on respect. To continue our conversation on respect, we want to go boldly into the next ten years. Spread the Word Inclusion is continuing our success through an ongoing effort by Special Olympics, Best Buddies and our supporters to inspire respect and acceptance by advocating for inclusive words and actions so that we can end discrimination of individuals with intellectual disabilities.
The   campaign,  created  and reimagined  by   youth,   is   intended  to  engage  schools,   organizations  and  communities  to  rally   and   pledge   their  support of inclusion  at   Hartford Union High School  and to promote the inclusionand acceptance of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The  annual   day  of  awareness   is   held   the  first  Wednesday  of  March.   While   most   activities  are  centered  on  or  near  that  annual   day   in  March,  people  everywhere  can  help   spread   the word  throughout   their  communities and  schools   year-round   through  pledge  drives,   youth  rallie s   and   online   activation.
Spread  the   Word  to   End  the   Word   was  founded   by  college  students  Soeren  Palumbo  (Notre   Dame  2011)   and  Tim   Shriver  (Yale  2011)   in   2009,  and  continues  to  be  led  by  passionate   young  people,  along   with  SpecialOlympics  athletes   and   Best  Buddies  participants  across   the United  States   and   in   many  other   parts  of   the   world.
Respectful  and  inclusive  words and actions   are  essential  to  the  movement  for  the  dignity  and  humanity  of   people   with  intellectual   disabilities.   However,   much   of  society   does  not  recognize  the  hurtful,  dehumanizing   andexclusive  effects  of   the exclusion of individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Language affects attitudes. Attitudes impact actions. Make your pledge for inclusion all this week during lunch and flex by signing the poster to SPREAD THE WORD: INCLUSION

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.
