Good Evening Huguenot High School Families,
Welcome to the second semester of the 2023-2024 school year! We have made lots of progress in the first half of this school year. Discipline data is significantly down from previous years, and our chronic absenteeism is down 10% as of tonight, surpassing our goals and bringing us well within the accreditation window for that specific standard. Our SOL scores have shown improvement in many areas; however, there is more work to be done. We hope to continue to make strong gains in SOLs during our second semester. We are also excited to continue to expand AP offerings at Huguenot and are excited about expanding activities, clubs, and athletic opportunities at Huguenot High School including a student advocacy club and a Tennis team. We have also made headway in hiring to fill vacant positions over the winter break which included three math teachers, and an exceptional education teacher. We hope that you will consider attending tomorrow night’s Dreams4RPS meeting from 5:30 to 7 PM and join future PTA meetings. We look forward to strengthening our partnership between school and home and working together as we move toward sustained greatness for our students at Huguenot High School.
Here are important updates from Huguenot High School:
*Semester 2 Homerooms and Schedules*
The second semester starts tomorrow. Under our “four by four” your student will be heading to all new classes on Monday. You can access the parent portal to go over your student’s schedule and homeroom location tonight. Tomorrow morning Huguenot High School will be holding a homeroom where paper copies of schedules will be distributed to students. If your student is going to miss tomorrow, he or she may retrieve a copy of his or her schedule from the main office for the remainder of the week if they have not already received it in homeroom. Schedules may sometimes be modified as the semester starts if additional class leveling is needed or mistakes are found on some schedules.
Report cards will be given directly to students this Friday, January 26. We will send a reminder before the report cards come home. On Friday final semester 1 grades will also be accessible through the parent portal.
The Dreams4RPS Strategic Planning event will take place from 5:30 PM to 7 PM tomorrow, Monday, January 22, 2024. We are excited to discuss and provide input into the RPS 2024-2029 Dreams4RPS strategic plan!
*YONDR Cellphone Pouch Pilot Update*
The YONDR cell phone pouch pilot program will begin later this semester. Huguenot will be sharing the date of our YONDR community meeting, and our start date later this week in a REMIND message and letter on Friday with report cards. The program starts soon but does not start tomorrow.
Health Services is planning to hold vaccination clinics for our high school students in February and March of 2024. Vaccines will be provided by (RHHD) Richmond Henrico Health District, and there will be no out-of-pocket cost to our students.
Car riders, please make sure to arrive a school prior to 8:50 in order to be on time to class which begins at 9:00AM each morning.
