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.

PSAT/NMSQT for Juniors
College-bound juniors may wish to consider taking the PSAT/NMSQT, which is the best preparation for the SAT and entry into the National Merit Scholarship Corporation programs. It is an optional exam that measures reading, writing and language, and math skills developed over many years that are important for success in college. Students do not have to recall facts from literature, history, science or math formulas, as this test measures reasoning and critical thinking skills.
 
All students who take the PSAT/NMSQT will receive an official score report. They will receive scores in critical reading, mathematics, and writing skills and will see how their scores compare to those of other students across the country. Students will be able to see which answers they got right or wrong. They will also receive information about how they performed on specific academic skills.
 
Students who take the test will receive personalized online SAT practice through Khan Academy based on their test performance.   Learn more at www.collegeboard.org/psat .
 
Registration for the PSAT is due Friday, October 5, at 3:00pm in the Student Services Office. The exam will be given on Wednesday, October 10, from 7:25am to 11:35am.  At the time of registration, students will be given a student guide that includes test-taking help and a full-length practice test.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Student Services Office at 670-3200, ext. 214,or  rachel.janczak@huhs.org

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.
 
Sincerely,
   
Hartford Union High School Counseling Department

Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same  opportunities as other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.

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.
