Students, please be careful and pay extra attention when crossing C Street and J Street. Cars can’t always see you and they won’t always stop. For drivers, remember that pedestrians have the right of way. Come to a complete stop and wait for pedestrians to safely cross before proceeding.  Thank you for considering everyone’s safety in our crosswalks.

*Thank you, Vikings, for following the school rules.  Remember: If an adult tells you “HATS OFF” simply remove your head wear and it won’t be confiscated.  HHS hats, or hats that are RED AND WHITE HATS and contain NO LOGO are allowed.

Any article of clothing with professional sports team logos are NOT allowed; however, college logos are acceptable.

And if an adult tells you “LANGUAGE” it is a reminder for you to be appropriate with the words you are using. Thanks for choosing your words wisely!

A gentle reminder that cell phones and earbuds are permitted ONLY at lunch and Nutrition. Again, earbuds should be ONE EAR TO HEAR, meaning use only ONE earbud.  However, portable speakers are not allowed!  Portable speakers and all other such devices will be confiscated!
