Good afternoon HHS families! This is a reminder that Lifetouch returns to Herrin High this Friday from 9 AM - 1 PM. This is our picture retake day. If your child didn’t take a picture, they need to do so on Friday to be included in the 2020-2021 Herrinite, HHS's yearbook. If your student took pictures during registration, and you have not received them, they will be available during this time to pick up. We will announce in the coming weeks the availability of the 2019-2020 Herrinite. Thank you!
Due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, all 2020 Herrin High School Homecoming activities will be postponed. We hope to have homecoming in the spring of 2021. HHS will keep everyone updated with information as it becomes available.
Good afternoon! Dental Safari will be at HHS on Thursday, October 1. For additional information or to sign up, please follow this link: http://bit.ly/hhsdentalsafari2020
Good morning families! This is a reminder that 3:00 PM today is the deadline to inform the HHS office if you would like to return from remote learning to in-person instruction or vice versa. The next opportunity will be Friday, October 9. Thank you!
Beginning Wednesday, September 2, ALL Herrin High School students may receive a free breakfast and lunch. Lunch status does not matter! Remote learners may pick up along Polk Street at 10:30 AM, and in-person learners may pick up in the Commons Area after school.
Happy Sunday HHS Families, I wanted to drop a quick line today regarding attendance/grades at HHS. Our faculty and staff are tracking an alarming number of students, both remote and in-person, who are not completing any assignments for this semester and who are not checking in with their teachers for attendance. We will be sending grade and attendance information home on Monday during Advisory class for in-person learners and through the mail for remote learners. Live grade/attendance information can be accessed through the PowerSchool Parent and/or Student Portals (https://powerschool.herrinschools.org/public/home.html). If you would like PowerSchool access, please email email@example.com and provide your name and your student's name. Every assignment counts for a grade this semester at Herrin High. Through a combined school and home partnership, we can ensure student success. Stay safe, Mr. Mason
Good afternoon! This is an update regarding fan attendance at Herrin CUSD #4 Athletic Events. According to IDPH guidelines, all fans must wear a mask at indoor and outdoor events. Individuals should maintain at least 30 feet distance from any player, coach, or official. We ask that HJHS baseball/softball spectators sit in the outfield. HHS tennis fans may sit in designated areas on the parking lot side. HHS/HJHS cross county and HHS golf spectators may observe from a distance and away from start and finish areas. Thank you for all of your support in observing IDPH guidelines, so our student athletes may participate this season. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the HHS Activities/Athletics Office.
Good afternoon Herrin High School Families! At this time, all Herrin High School students are classified as either (1) HYBRID learners who attend school in-person Monday-Thursday and remotely on Friday or (2) REMOTE learners who complete school 100% remotely Monday-Friday. In an attempt to clarify our attendance procedures for hybrid learners on Friday and ALL remote learners Monday-Friday, we are instituting the following policy going forward: Beginning Friday, 8/21/2020, all hybrid learners and remote learners are expected to complete an attendance check-in question for each of their classes by 1:30 PM. Hybrid learners will only need to complete the attendance question on Friday. Remote learners will have an attendance question for EB, 1st, 2nd, Advisory, and 5th hours on Monday and Wednesday, 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th hours on Tuesday and Thursday, and all classes on Friday. Students will be considered "absent" for any class in which the attendance check-in question is not answered by 1:30 PM. The attendance check-in question will be outside of each teacher’s normally assigned material and provides a method for Herrin High School to streamline attendance for students learning away from school. Each teacher maintains the ability to assign due dates for assignments in Google Classroom and assign consequences aligned to our student handbook for late work. We apologize for the confusion as we continue to evolve our procedures to best meet everyone’s needs during this unprecedented period. Stay safe!
During 7th Hour on Thursday, 8/13, we will pass out Herrin CUSD #4 e-Learning Device Agreements (https://bit.ly/hcusd4elearning2020) to in-person learners who have been identified as having a device or home internet need. From 1:30 to 3:00 PM on Thursday, 8/13, we will do a drive-thru material/book pickup in the south parking lot for remote learners to pick up their materials. We will also pass out the e-Learning Device Agreement and internet assistance information to families who need a device and/or home internet service. On Friday, 8/14, from 9:00 to 10:00 AM and 1:00 to 2:00 PM, we will distribute Chromebooks to remote learning and in-person students who return a completed Herrin CUSD #4 e-Learning Device Agreement form. If a family is unable to make those times, arrangements will need to be made with Mrs. Cornelius at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand that we are extremely limited in what Chromebooks we can distribute. Our expected shipment has not arrived. We greatly appreciate all of the support and patience our HHS families have shown as we transform the learning opportunities available at HHS.
Please check out our Fall How-to HHS Videos that Mrs. Torbeck and her team made for students as they prepare to transition back to school. We can't wait to see you tomorrow! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9VbLoM7ozrozvwqB5pZMJwJ6mnYTTwtl
Good afternoon Herrin High School Families! I wanted to send a quick update out to those families who have selected remote learning for this semester. 1) Students will need to check their @herrinschools.org email. Teachers have begun enrolling students in their Google Classrooms, and students will need to accept that invitation. Students should expect to have 8 Google Classrooms (9 if enrolled in EB Chrous). Also, if you need access to the student Google account, please send an email to email@example.com. 2) Meetings with teachers may vary between live, in-person, and recorded for you to watch on your own time. 3) Assignments and projects will be due for remote learning students on or about the same time as students who are in-class. (There will be some leeway this coming week as we establish times for book pick-up.) 4) Attendance will be taken each day that a class meets which equals three times per week. Attendance is the remote learning student's responsibility to ensure contact. A "contact" may be a message to the teacher in Google Classroom, the submission of an assignment, or a wellness "check-in" Google Form created by the teacher. Failure to check in results in an absence. We will release additional information next week to let you know when you will be able to pick up books and needed materials for this semester. Stay safe and, most importantly, in touch with us!
