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 HHS Parents,http://healthvermont.gov/research/yrbs/2013/documents/SAU70.pdf
I have been contacted today by several area schools, and more than a few of our community members, letting me know about the ‘polar plunge’. Apparently there has been social media chatter where teens are daring each other to jump into recently thawed bodies of water. It goes without saying that this is concerning. Bodies of water are swollen as a result of the ongoing thaw, are filled with debris and are extremely cold. Please help us to spread the word about the dangers associated with jumping into water this time of year.
At the risk of making an incredibly clumsy segue, I hope you all have an enjoyable vacation. I hope, more than anything, that our students are able to find time to relax. This is a busy time of year and they need a break.

HHS administers the Vermont Youth Risk Behavior Survey each year. This anonymous survey gives us information about the choices our students are making. Please contact Chris Seibel 643-3431 Ext 2112 if you have any questions about the YRBS results. Our staff is currently reviewing the data to ensure we continue to do all we can to address the risks that some of our students are taking. The following link will allow you to access a .pdf of the results:
