Orientation/Open House 2017-2018

Thursday, August 17, 2017

We are very excited to welcome some of you to Haysville High School for the first time, for others Welcome Back! We are looking forward to a great year and are committed to partnering with you to help your student achieve academic excellence and explore opportunities for post-high school training and education. Our first official day of attendance for the first session will consist of our Orientation/Open House, which will be held in the Gymnasium at HHS on Thursday, August 17th. In order for student enrollment to be complete, all students must attend one of the three sessions with a parent or guardian and sign the parent/student/school contract. All new students are required to attend the first session from 8:00-9:55 a.m. with a parent or guardian. Orientation will consist of an overview of the program, the student handbook, and will highlight the strengths and purpose of our program as well as highlight opportunities. Your student’s schedule of classes will be available on this day as well. There will be a Question and Answer Session at the end of Orientation. Following Orientation, we will run a mini-schedule with ten minute classes and five-minute passing periods. This will be a great opportunity to get to know teachers and become familiar with their subject areas and expectations. Please call 554-2231 to sign up for one of the following sessions. It is extremely important that students attend with a parent or guardian. Attendance will be taken for Orientation with each classroom teacher. Absent students will stay for seminar on Friday, August 25th for Orientation with Mr. Foster.

HHS students will continue to benefit from the strong partnership which exists between HHS and WATC as we continue to offer Dual Credit College English for college credit and concurrent credit for Senior English. We will also offer College Algebra for dual credit in the Spring. College English, which will begin at the start of the second nine-weeks on October 23rd is taught by Mrs. White, and will end on December 20th. Dr. Gross is our instructor for College Algebra which will begin on January 5th. College Algebra unlike College English lasts for 18 weeks. Both courses, through WATC, are part of the Kansas Board of Regents Seamless Transfer System and are guaranteed to transfer to public Kansas colleges and universities. The cost of these courses is a very affordable $69 per credit hour ($207 total for 3 credit hours). Our students will not have any textbook fees as they will be able to use loaners provided by HHS. The same courses at WSU would cost $638 plus books. This is the fourth year we have offered college courses on our campus for dual credit and it has been a huge success. It is very exciting to see students grow in their confidence as they embrace and achieve the challenge of earning college credit. If your student is interested in taking these courses please contact Kelly Rummery, School Counselor at 554-2231 or via email at krummery@usd261.com

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions ("ESI"). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request.
