Orientation Day. Orientation is the first day of school for the classes of 2026 and 2027, as well as any scholar who is new to HHS. The purpose of this day is to support the successful transition of scholars as we start our first year as a 9-12 high school. In previous years, our orientation day has served incoming 10th graders and scholars new to HHS. As we transition from a 10-12 to a 9-12 high school, it is imperative we include scholars in both grades 9 and 10 for our annual orientation. We will accommodate families who are still on vacation during this last week of August or cannot send their scholar to August 30 Orientation for other reasons. There is no penalty for scholars who are unable to attend. 

  • Structure of Orientation Day. August 30 will be structured as a regular school day, in that transportation and meals will be provided and scholars will be at HHS for a full day. Orientation activities will include grade-level class meetings to meet the administrative team and academic counselors, and activities with scholar leaders from various scholar groups and clubs. Scholars will also receive their Chromebooks, take school pictures, and become familiar with their Term I daily course schedule. These activities will help ease their transition from junior high school to high school to ensure a strong start. 
  • If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our school office at 952-988-4500. We look forward to meeting your scholar(s) on Orientation Day. We are also excited to engage with you during Open House Night.
