Veteran's Breakfast
Hartford Union High School is hosting a free Veterans Breakfast on Monday, November 12, 2018 from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. to commemorate all those who have served our country in the Armed Forces. 
All Hartford area veterans are cordially invited to attend the event, which includes a cooked breakfast, music, and a keynote speaker. Veterans may bring one guest to this event.

The HUHS Student Council is the primary host of the breakfast, which is designed to offer thanks and pay respect to those in our area who have served in any branch of the US Armed Forces, either in wartime or peacetime.

"This is an excellent opportunity for the school community and members of the community at large to come together, break bread, and say thanks," said Dr. Attila J. Weninger, Superintendent of HUHS. "We are especially pleased to honor our local veterans, whose service and sacrifice make our way of life possible."
The Student Council of HUHS will greet the attending veterans and visit with them during breakfast. High school teachers and staff who are veterans, along with members of the administrative team and the School Board, will also be in attendance. The HUHS music department will perform music appropriate to the occasion, and a keynote speaker will offer brief remarks to welcome the veterans and express appreciation for their service and commitment.

The courtesy of an RSVP is requested by November 1. Veterans can RSVP for this free event by calling Janet Jocham, Superintendent's Assistant, at (262) 670-3200, extension 209.
Vote for Scott Savage!
Hartford football: The senior helped the Orioles avenge an early-season loss to West Bend East Friday by carrying 40 times for 278 yards and three touchdowns. His scores from 1 and 28 yards out in the fourth quarter accounted for the go-ahead and game-sealing scores in the 30-22 victory.  Voting ends 3pm Friday the 26th.

The deadline to submit Senior Photos for the Class of 2019 for inclusion in the yearbook is November 1, 2018.  As this date is rapidly approaching, here are a few reminders for submitting Senior Photos.
Senior Photos in the yearbook are small, so ideally the photo should just show the head and shoulders - we want show as much of your face as possible!  Photos must be vertical color prints that meet the following requirements:
  • No pets
  • No hats
  • Simple background
  • School appropriate clothing
To submit your Senior Photo, please follow this process:
  • Ensure that you are submitting a digital copy of your photo.  DO NOT submit a screen shot of your senior picture from your photographer.  The image must be at least 2x3 inches at 300dpi.  Files should be submitted as a .jpg or a .tiff.  If you cannot submit a digital file, we can digitize your photo but this will reduce the quality of the original.
  • Name your file with your last name_your first name (Ex: Doe_John)
  • Upload your file to this link: https://images.jostens.com/410583672
Many local photographers have these deadlines and may send the photo for you if you ask.  Please note that we cannot accept prints from a laser or inkjet computer printer.
Photos received after the November 1 deadline will result in a $25 fee.  Photos received after November 15th WILL NOT be published in the 2018-19 yearbook.  Any students who do not turn in a Senior Photo prior to the November 1 deadline will have their HUHS school photo published in the yearbook. 
More information, including a list of local photographers and the listed of submitted Senior Photos, can be found on the  Yearbook page on the HUHS website.  
Please email   yearbook@huhs.org with any questions!

Health Services
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.

www.actstudent.org. When registering, students will need the HUHS school code, which is 500-850.   Please remember to check the website to see if the college(s) your son or daughter is considering requires or recommends the ACT writing test.   The test fee for the ACT is $50.50 and the ACT with writing is $67.00.   If you feel you cannot afford the test fee, please ask your child's counselor if you are eligible for a fee waiver.

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.
