As you may already know, the Herrin Tiger football team will be playing Marion this Saturday, August 28th at 7:00 p.m. The High School is expecting attendance of this game to be near capacity. Because of the large crowds at HHS football games, Herrin Unit #4 is requesting the following from students in attendance: 1) Students attending the game MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian and sit with them in the bleachers. 2) No running or rough housing on the grounds at the game. 3) Students are not to bring footballs or other items to play games inside the gates. These expectations will carry on for the remainder of the season. Because expectations for attendance are extremely high, we are doing everything we can to make sure everyone attending can watch the game safely and free from student interference. Even with a capacity crowd, we want ALL of our fans to be able to have a great time and enjoy the game. Thank you!
CharacterStrong Information Letter
HJHS Families: Please remember to send your student to school with a mask tomorrow and every day until further notice. Remember masks are required per the governor’s mandate upon k-12 schools. No one will be allowed to enter the building without a mask. Thank you for your cooperation.
Dear HJHS Families: Welcome to the 2021-22 school year. We are excited to get started and especially excited to welcome our students back full time! There are a few items I wanted to share with you this afternoon as I think about getting back in session. First, is our drop-off/parking procedures (picture attached). If there is something unclear after viewing the document, don’t hesitate to reach out to the school or ask at open house. Second is our open house/meet & greet set to take place Tuesday evening from 5:00-6:30. Hopefully, you and your student can make it in to drop supplies off and meet teachers. Third, the IL governor has placed all k-12 schools under a mask mandate meaning all students, faculty, staff, and guests will have to wear a mask to enter the building. Please keep this in mind for open house and the first day of school (8/11/21). It is our hope that we will have masks for students by Wednesday, but that isn’t a guarantee, so your student should bring one just in case. Last, I wanted to share a video that we put together to help answer some questions and ease some anxiety as we begin the year. The link is as follows: https://youtu.be/vHmytwSRRQQ Enjoy the rest of your Summer and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evening and getting back to school on Wednesday morning at 8:00am. Respectfully, Mr. Brad Heuring Principal
