Education Expo

We invite you to join us as we host the 2018 Education Expo on October 18 at Hanover High School. Here students and parents can learn more about some of the most exciting and innovative educational programs and pathways that are available. Each program will begin at 6:00 p.m. We will serve a free dinner from 5:30-6:30 p.m. This event will feature the HHS Specialty Center, Advance College Academy, The Hanover Center for Trades and Technology, the International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement programs offered at all high schools, the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School, and CodeRVA. While all are welcome, it will be especially helpful for students in grades 5 through 10 and their parents as they begin planning their educational futures. 

Homecoming Dance

The homecoming dance is at PHHS on October 20 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. Tickets will go on sale for $15 each starting Tuesday, October 9 in the cafeteria during all four lunches. Any student intending on bringing a guest not currently enrolled at PH must have a guest permission form completed and ready to turn in at the time of ticket purchase. Students may bring only one guest per event. All guests must be 20 years of age or younger. Middle school students may not attend Patrick Henry High School dances. All tickets must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Parent Accounts for Schoology

We're excited to share that the parent account codes to access Schoology, our new learning management system, will be available through your PowerSchool account on October 8. In order to view your code, you will need to log into your PowerSchool account. If you are unable to access your PowerSchool account, please contact Mrs. Dail. Stay tuned for more information on Schoology!

Schedule Changes

The next opportunity for a student to make a change to their schedule will be at the first interim, October 5. Official forms to drop a class or change level in a course will be available in the counseling center beginning on October 1. We will only permit students to drop a course for a study hall or level down in a course (ie. advanced to standard).

Student Absences

This is a reminder to have your student bring in a note to the attendance office whenever he/she is absent. Absences will remain unexcused until verified by a parent/guardian note or documentation from a health care provider. 

Please also note that we are required to contact parents/guardians when students reach five, six, or seven unexcused full-day absences, we need to develop plans with you to improve attendance. Once a student reaches seven unexcused full-day absences and interventions were in place before that, we are required to turn that information over for truancy. The Virginia Department of Education put in measures last year to reduce chronic absenteeism and this is one of those measures.
