Material Pickup Day Information
Material Pickup is designed as your one stop shop to pick up your schedule, stock your locker, get your books update your google and haiku accounts, and pick up your parking pass.
- Wednesday, August 7: 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
- Thursday, August 8: 1:30- 7:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, August 13 (makeup day): 8:00 a.m.-noon (for those who missed the first 2 days)
1:1 Device Distribution
Devices will be checked out to students at Material Pickup. Freshmen and Juniors MUST bring their current chrome books and chargers with them to turn in and be issued a new device. Students will have step by step procedures to follow (with the help of staff members) to properly log in and connect to wifi. This process is very important and will require the student to be present to have the device checked out to him/her with student ID card and Google credentials. Any student unable to attend may check out their device from the Technology Help Desk in room C1122 on the first day of school.
Please ensure your registration is completed through the Web Store prior to material pick up days. As a reminder, no student will be able to attend classes until they have been registered and fees paid.
During material pick up days, students will be photographed for the yearbook. Any student unable to have his/her picture taken during material pick up will have an opportunity for make-ups in October.
Students will only be allowed to make elective changes within the same class period. No elective schedule changes will be made after the first day of school. Below are reasons to see your counselor on material pick up days:
- No class scheduled for a particular period
- Missing lunch
- Scheduled to take a class you have already passed
- Senior missing a graduation requirement
- Elective course change if possible in existing schedule
All books checked out to students at Material Pick Up must be returned to the school and properly scanned back into the system to give the student credit for returning the book. We will provide an opportunity to return books at the end of each semester for all students. If a schedule change occurs for any other reason a student no longer needs a book, it is the responsibility of the student to contact either Ms. Schwerzler or Mrs. Gustafson in the P-Z office to have their book scanned into the system.
Failure to properly return the book may result in the student being charged to replace the book, if it cannot be recovered. Failure to return books or other checked out materials or pay the cost to replace the books or materials in full may result in diploma and transcripts being held until they are returned. Students should never turn in text books to a teacher. They must be returned to either the book room at the proper return time or to the P-Z office if a mid-year exit occurs.

During the school year, we typically have 4 assemblies. A Back-to-School, Homecoming, one in late January or early February, and one in March for a special These assemblies are vital to infusing positivity and fun into the school year to ensure our school culture is strong. We are asking that you NOT call your student out for these assemblies, but rather encourage them to participate. We are working hard to improve the quality of the assemblies to make them more interactive and involve more students. We view this as a part of the school day and would appreciate your support on this issue. I firmly believe these events can go a long way to further connect our students to the school and make HHS an even better place to be!
Freshman Raider Rally
Join your classmates and Link Crew Leaders for a fun morning designed as an orientation tailored to your needs as an incoming freshman. The rally is guaranteed to be fun and light hearted and will give you an opportunity to meet new people and get excited about starting high school. Our group of Link Crew leaders will guide you through your freshman year and can be a great resource for you on a daily basis to help navigate your way through your transition into high school.
The ability to communicate is vital to success in life. While we want to maintain open lines of communication we also want all of our students to be a partner in this communication process. Please encourage your student to advocate for themselves and communicate their needs with their teachers and our student services department.
Please pay attention to our school website, as we regularly post important information about upcoming events and general happenings at the high school. Look for information on our Parent Power Team and join the team to offer feedback about what is going well and what areas we can improve. Encourage your student to visit Power School regularly to ensure everything is accurate and there aren’t any surprises. Finally, be an active parent and positively support our students and school
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please encourage your student to check his/her school email regularly as this will be the primary communication tool used between Administration and the student body. In addition, students may periodically receive text messages from the school or school district if you provide a student cell number in the SwiftReach Swift K12 section of the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
