Most Important
Congratulations to the 2020 graduates who have earned scholarships. The 2020 seniors have earned more than one million dollars in scholarships for their post high school education!
Each year at this time we take a moment to recognize student achievements.  Normally it is an all-school assembly in which we recognize the numerous accomplishments of our students. Please see the attached document highlighting all the amazing accomplishments our students did throughout the year .  We know the extra-curricular activities were cut short this year and our thoughts are with those who had academic and athletic competitions canceled.  Congratulations to all of our award winners!

Stay Positive and Oriole Strong!
SENIORS

No Meals on Memorial Day, May 25th
Effective 5/18… Independence Park's Grab-and-Go Meal drive-thru service will be closed due to poor driveway conditions from the heavy rains. The site will remain open for neighborhood walk-up service. Please visit Veteran's Pool for drive-thru service for the remainder of the program (May 29). Due to heavy traffic and children crossing the street, please do not park on Wilson Ave and walk to site.
Find A Summer Meals Site

There are many organizations throughout Wisconsin that provide free healthy meals to children throughout the summer. You may use one or more of the following resources to find your nearest location:
  • Locate a site on the Summer Meals Map (the map will be updated weekly throughout the summer)
  • Call 2-1-1… 2-1-1 is a free, easy-to-remember phone number connecting callers with health and human services in their community.
  • Text 'food' to 877-877
High school counselors, we are excited to share with you information about a unique opportunity for your students to learn about their higher education options from the comfort and safety of their own homes! The colleges and universities of Minnesota State are coming together for one week in June to offer special  virtual information sessions  so you students can learn more about their academic options, financial aid, transferring from a two-year college to a four-year university, and more. Your students can even apply for FREE anytime during the week.
Learn more about  Virtual Minnesota State Week  below or on our website.

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.
Break 10:00 – 10:10 a.m.
English testing 10:10 – 11:50 a.m.
Break 11:50 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Dismissal of those not taking a foreign language test, followed by foreign language testing (French, German, or Spanish) 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.

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 $52.00 and the ACT with Writing is $68.00.  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 most testing dates. The test dates for the 2019-20 school year are:
                                June 13, 2020                                July 18, 2020

Note:  Please keep in mind all juniors are required by state law to take the ACT at the high school on March 3 (no cost to the student on March 3).   When considering whether or not to sign up to take the February 8 or April 4 ACT, it may be best for students to take the March 3 test, then decide whether or not to retake the test in June or July based upon March results.

University of Wisconsin-Stout School of Hospitality Leadership
We are excited to welcome students from around the Midwest (and the world) into our globally ranked Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management program, our only-one-in-the-nation Golf Enterprise Management program and our industry-integrated Real Estate Property Management program.  
 
While we have been busy this Fall building out new curriculum for students to succeed in their chosen fields and identifying innovative international relationships for students to experience education outside of the traditional classroom environment (USA-Japan Hospitality Summit) , we continually focus on what makes us unique – creating extraordinary education value to help students pursue their goals after graduation. From collaborating with globally recognized companies to helping our students find themselves ( Stout Stories - SHL ), we are focused on creating those opportunities that help set our future leaders apart from everyone else!
