Hanover High School is an active learning community that provides broad academic and co-curricular programs. We engage students' minds, hearts and voices so that they become educated, caring and responsible adults.
All students are given the opportunity to use their
- minds to pursue excellence, academic challenge and personal success.
- hearts to respect and care for the emotional and physical well-being of themselves and others, and for the environment.
- voices to contribute to the democratic process and the common good.
Dear Parents and Guardians of HHS Students,
I hope you and your family are able to enjoy this school vacation. Our students have given much of themselves recently and have earned a break! And, when will the warm weather arrive??
I apologize for the terrible segue but the rest of my message will update you on our testing plans. You will recall from my earlier notes that all public schools are required to administer standardized testing designed to measure our students’ progress in meeting the Common Core Standards. In accordance with this requirement, you will recall that HHS will test the eleventh grade class the week of April 27th. The test is web-based, complete with its own secure - and clumsy - browser interface. In order to assure adequate connectivity for test takers, we will delay the start of school by two hours for grades 9, 10 and 12. Please know in advance that our staff has spent hours evaluating all possible schedules, preparing computer labs and making sure our students are able to demonstrate their abilities to the fullest.
During the testing week juniors will arrive to school as they normally do. Students in grades 9, 10 and 12 will arrive at 10 am. There will be a second bus run to accommodate the later arrival. I will send detailed busing info following vacation. The HHS class schedule for the testing week follows this message.
