HTH Newsletter

"Story is the wisdom that can guide you to your true destiny--both temporal and spiritual. All of the great myths, legends, and fairy tales have that power. If you understand their secrets, they can guide you to a full realization of your self. Great stories are designed to guide us to our full potential and are as necessary to our well-being as fresh air."
-James Bonnet, author Stealing Fire From the Gods.

Here are some stories and we hope you find some fresh air.

We have had a high number of unexcused tardies in the last few weeks. It is very important that students arrive to school on time in order to get the most out of their school day. Thank you! 

The purpose of the HTH dress code is to foster a professional, safe and respectful environment at school. The dress code is in effect from the time students arrive to school until they leave. Note that students must be in dress code before school begins if they enter the building before the official start of school. The dress code
applies to field trips, site visits, academic internships, and other school-related activities, unless the supervising adult informs the students otherwise.
The dress code applies equally to students and staff.
  • Students must either wear a short or long-sleeve blouse, shirt with a collar, or sweater.
  • Shirts must be buttoned.
  • Shoulders must be covered and exposed mid-sections are not acceptable.
  • T-shirts may not be worn over collared shirts.
  • Printed t-shirts are not allowed.
  • Sweaters and jackets of an appropriate size and length may be worn over, but not in place of, an appropriate shirt.
  • Hooded sweatshirts are not allowed to substitute for an appropriate shirt.
  • Appropriate school attire includes long pants, shorts or skirts worn with the waistband at the waist.
  • Excessively baggy pants, athletic wear, and sweatpants are not acceptable
  • Jeans in good repair are acceptable.
  • Skirts and shorts must be of acceptable length (2 inches above the knee).
  • Other clothing guidelines
  • Clothing items with text that promotes violence, alcohol, tobacco or drugs are not allowed.
  • Flips flops and slippers are not allowed
  • Exposed midsections are not allowed
  • Hats, hoods and bandanas are not allowed. Head coverings worn for religious reasons will be allowed.
  • Earrings are fine, but no other visible piercing. Small, clear studs are allowed in place of nose rings during the school day.
