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.

Safety Drills

We will be conducting our annual safety drills on October 10, 2018.  A modified schedule for this day will be followed. 
Freshman Conferences with Counselors
HUHS counselors  will be scheduling  conferences  with  freshmen  students, starting September 24 and continuing through December. 

The purpose of Freshmen Conferences is to build rapport with students and help them identify both interests and skills to support their academic and career planning. HUHS counselors believe in forming and cultivating strong relationships with students so that we can best serve them during their high school career.  Student engagement increases when students understand that there are connections between their interests and their career goals.

  Counselors will meet with students during a 45-minute period, making every effort to schedule students during a course period where they are excelling. Students will be notified of their conference time two days in advance. If you have any questions, please contact your child's counselor.
Junior Conferences with Counselors
Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2020:
You are invited to participate in a Junior Planning Conference with your child and school counselor.   This conference is designed to focus on talents, interests, and post-secondary planning.   The conference lasts 40 minutes and your involvement is essential.     Therefore, please make it a priority to attend your child's conference.
Items discussed in the conference include but may not be limited to graduation requirements, senior schedule, career plans, post-secondary options, ACT/SAT, and financial aid/scholarships.
Conferences will take place October through January. To schedule your child's conference, please contact the Student Services Office at 262.670.3200, ext. 214. Conferences are held during the regular school day (from 7am- 3pm). Please contact our office by October 31 to select your date and time.
Also, a Junior Student & Parent Night will be held at the high school on Wednesday, January 9, at 6:30pm. Counselors will give a presentation that will cover course selection details, assessment dates, college and career readiness plans, and other information pertinent to junior students. A panel of HUHS graduates will talk about their high school senior year and how they prepared for post-secondary plans. They will also talk about their experiences as they transitioned from high school student to their college or career path.

ACT Testing
All students considering a two or four-year college experience are reminded to take the ACT test during their junior year.  Students can register for the ACT at 
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. 
HUHS is an ACT test center for all testing dates (except February 9).  The test dates for the 2018-2019 school year are:
October 27, 2018            December 8, 2018                 February 9, 2019                    April 13, 2019                 June 8, 2019                     July 13, 2019

Note:   Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on February 20 (no cost to the student on February 20).    When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 9 or April 13 ACT, it may be best for students to take the February 20 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon February results.

Trail Sharks
On Sunday the Trail Sharks-Washington County Mountain Bike Team was in Eau Claire.  The weather was perfect for the racers as it was cool and misty, the trail was flat and fast with a rocky down hill and two soft up hills.  This was a course that was not something that the Trail Sharks are used to.  However the athletes did a great job holding on and racing fast with the other racers.  Many of our athletes found each other on the course and pushed each other as they raced to the finish line.  Nick Skaalen bettered his place from previous races this season. 

Top 10 finisher....

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.
