Food Service Balances
Students with a negative balance during the last week of school (starting May 29) will not be allowed to charge any purchases; free meals can still be purchased. Negative meal account balances need to be cleared before final exams / graduation.  Graduates owing District fees, including meal charges, may be restricted from participating in the graduation ceremony. Account balances for students returning to HUHS will carry over to the next school year.

Food Service Refunds
Refund checks will be generated for inactive accounts (due to graduating or withdrawing from HUHS) if other district dues are not owed and if a sibling is not currently or will not be attending HUHS in Fall. If district fees are owed, the amount of the meal account refund will be applied toward that balance. If siblings are still attending or will be attending HUHS in Fall, the balance will remain in the account for them. Full-price accounts may opt to donate their refund to a donation meal account to assist students in need by contacting the Food Service Office  foodservice@huhs.org or (262) 670-3315.

Student vs. Staff Battle of the Books
Each summer, the state librarian's association releases a list of 20 new books for high school students and teachers to read to promote a love of reading and to encourage conversations about books.  Our tradition at HUHS is to hold a staff vs. student battle in the spring.  While only a few participants could make the final battle, the conversations throughout the year were priceless.  The students won this year, making it an overall tie-- 2 wins for teachers and 2 wins for the students.  The new list will be released on June 1st, and we always have room for more people. Congrats to all!
May 6th - 10th, we'll be having a book drive during first hour classes. The books will be donated to students at Lincoln Elementary School, so if you have any old books at home then please consider donating! The books should be elementary level and lightly used.

There will also be a class competition; the 3 classes that donate the most books will win cupcakes!
Hartford Union High School graduates Jeanette Hetzel Juetten and Rachel Arfstrom play Ring Around the Rosie with children at Jean Rubin's orphanage outside of Mirebalais, Haiti. The fun took place during a January trip to Haiti by Ventures in People (VIP), a volunteer nonprofit organization based in West Bend that has been sponsoring trips to Haiti for about three decades.

Peers for Peers visited Central on 4/23 to help raise awareness about the dangers of vaping and smoking. Students answered trivia questions, pledged to be a part of the first Smoke Free Generation and did a "straw run" to experience restricted breathing that can occur from smoking.  

Hartford FFA members are preparing to greet elementary and pre-school students from the area for our Food for America program. This entirely student planned and run field trip experience aims to engage and educate local youth about where their food comes from and how farmers and businesses in our community work together to help ensure a safe and healthy food supply for everyone. Students will learn about topics ranging from farm machinery, growing crops and the milk harvesting process and will make butter and plant seeds to take home. Level Acres Dairy hosts the event and Grande Cheese supplies a pizza lunch for the workers. 

Thank you to our Awesome Food Nutrition Staff! Proclamation

Parent & Community Survey
Hartford Union High School (HUHS) recently completed a strategic planning process which involved a team of 30 stakeholders. This group reviewed school performance data, participated in focus groups and then developed the following goals:
Goal #1: Career, College, and Life Readiness Achievement
Students will meet Career, College and Life Readiness Achievement benchmarks.
Goal #2: HUHS will be viewed as the community's "high school of choice"
HUHS will be viewed as the community's "high school of choice."
Goal #3: Engagement of All Stakeholders
HUHS will increase each stakeholder group's engagement and satisfaction.
Goal #4: Master Facilities Plan
Develop a master facility plan for the school buildings and grounds.
Using these goals as a planning framework, we are seeking your input on this community-wide survey to help us answer three important questions:
1) What are we doing well?
2) Where do we need to adjust and focus more resources?
3) What are our highest priorities?

Survey results will be presented at a School Board meeting this summer and will also be available on the District website. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

Student Services
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 Wisconsin Lions Camp        
The camp is looking for campers and staff to join them this summer. Staff applications available are for counselors, program specialists, healthcare staff, counselors-in-training, and volunteers. Applications, camp schedule, and information are all available at:   www.wisconsinlionscamp.com

Health Careers Summer Camp
Health Careers Summer Camps in your area will have their applications open up online starting today,   March 1st!  These two camps are sponsored by the Northeastern Wisconsin Area Health Education Center, Lakeshore Health Care Alliance, and the Fox Valley Health Care Alliance. The applications will be available on the NEWAHEC website [ www.newahec.org ]. The first camp is in the Fox Valley Area, students will be housed on the UW-Oshkosh campus. The second camp will be in the Sheboygan/Manitowoc area, and students will be housed at Silver Lake College. All campers will be exposed to health care professionals and academic institutions from both areas. The camps are 5 days long, and allow students to experience first hand the challenges, opportunities, and rewards of being a health professional. The camps are for any students entering 11th-12th grade along with new high school graduates. Applications will be   due May 3rd   for both camps.

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.
