After School Tutoring

Students are encouraged to attend these after school tutoring sessions to catch up on homework, receive help with an applicable subject, or they can use this time to study for any of their classes. If you have any questions about the after school tutoring program, please contact Mr. Mercieca.

Masking is required inside all Huntsville City Schools buildings. Please monitor yourself and your family members for the following symptoms: fever, cough, body aches, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, or sudden loss of taste or smell. Anyone who develops one or more of these symptoms should contact their doctor or nearest urgent care for guidance. If a member of your household tests positive for COVID, please notify the school nurse immediately. If a student is unable to attend class due to COVID concerns (such as exhibiting COVID symptoms or being excluded), please email Ms. Lightfoot to let her know so attendance can be marked appropriately. All classwork will be posted in Schoology so students can keep up with their schoolwork.
Tip of the Week
Avoid multitasking while studying. Research shows that students are less likely to recall information if they are performing other tasks while studying. Avoid distractions and give yourself time to focus on learning the material. Set aside time for nothing but studying to help improve your recall and comprehension of course content.
