Thank you for being flexible during this interesting week.  Teachers will be finalizing semester grades on Monday and Tuesday of this week, including make-up exams.  My plan is to send paper report cards home on Friday, January 14, 2022.  I will send out an email and text on the day report cards go home.

Addressing Concerns:

It is always best to handle concerns at the lowest level possible.  This will ensure concerns are addressed in a timely and efficient manner.  Our faculty and coaching staff are trained professionals, dedicated to supporting their students.  Please give the teachers and coaches an opportunity to resolve issues at the classroom level first.  

  1. Step 1. If your concern involves your student’s teacher or coach, please email that teacher or coach first.  You may request a conference or try to resolve the issue via email.   
  2. Step 2.  If after attempting to resolve your concern with the teacher or coach you feel your concern is not resolved, please contact the appropriate grade-level assistant principal. 
  3. Step 3.  If after attempting to resolve your concern first with the teacher and second with the appropriate grade-level assistant principal you feel your concern is not adequately addressed, please involve the principal, Mrs. Jeanne Greer.  Appointments may be made through the office manager, Mrs. Laurie McGuffey, laurie.mcguffey@hsv-k12.org.

Breakfast & Lunch: 

All students qualify for free breakfast and lunch during the 2021-2022 school year. 
Make sure your child knows their lunch number.
