Since the beginning of the school year, we have used five inclement weather days due to two hurricanes and a major snowstorm. As outlined in the 2018-2019 HCPS school calendar, the following changes will take effect:
  • January 24: Full day (originally an early closing for a staff/faculty workday)
  • February 18: Full day (originally an early closing for parent-teacher conferences)

Individual Academic Planning

The Counseling Center will begin meeting individually with underclassman to conduct Individual Academic Planning meetings to include a review of graduation requirements, exploration of post-secondary plans, and selection of course requests for the 2019-2020 school year. Counselors will review teacher recommendations with students and advise them on appropriate course selection for next school year. During this meeting, students will receive pertinent information to assist in planning for the future. Parents will be able to see course requests in the PowerSchool Parent Portal after their child’s meeting with a counselor. We will send home course verification sheets with the Quarter 3 and Quarter 4 interims; parents can make changes to student course requests at this time. Students are not permitted to make changes to course requests after August 8, 2019. Please see the schedule below for Individual Academic Planning meetings.

  • January 7 – January 18: Grade 10 Students
  • January 21 – February 1: Grade 11 Students
  • February 4 – February 8: Grade 9 Students
  • February 11 – February 15: Make-Ups
