Welcome to our HHS Parents' Page!

Welcome HHS Families. We believe parent involvement is the key to student success. Below you will find information on our School Governance Council, parent access to Power School, and our school health services, including the nurse's office and the SBHC (School Based Health Clinic). 


Parent Dismissal

Parents/Guardians who need their student dismissed early must provide a note, email, or phone call to their house administrator indicating the date, time and reason for dismissal. Please visit the House Administration page for your student’s contact information.

Late Arrival and Early Dismissal

Students who wish to have late arrival or early dismissal should have their parent/guardian email their House Administration. In the email, the parent should provide the student's name, grade, and which period(s) they are requesting late arrival or early dismissal. Please note that students who choose to have early dismissal may not return to take the bus home. They must arrange alternative transportation.
