Principal's Updates

  • From the Principal's Desk: Week of May 7

    Posted by Paul Mansingh on 5/6/2018

    Throughout the remaining weeks of the school year, it is important to remember that students need to come to school dressed appropriately. Dressing appropriately means that you are not to wear short shorts, spaghetti straps, tank tops, halter tops, sagging pants, baseball caps, see through tops, or any clothing that may be too revealing of certain body parts. Gentleman – we need to leave the grills at home and wear your pants at your waistline. Ladies – we need you to cover all undergarments and wear clothes that cover your midsection. As Titan Scholars, we have high academic standards for all students and this includes dressing appropriately for school. Any student who is not dressed appropriately for school will be required to call home to request a change of clothes before continuing with their day.

    AP Exams will begin this week. A schedule of all AP exams for the next two weeks is posted on our school website.  We wish all AP students participating in the exams the best of luck. Students who are scheduled to take an AP exam are expected to follow their regular schedule, except for the block of time they are testing.

    Because learning does not stop when the school year ends, we are asking that students keep their tablets over the summer break. Any student who will be enrolling into summer school is expected to take their tablets with them throughout the summer school schedule.  You will be expected to return your tablet, if you are a graduating senior or a student who will not be returning to Hercules High School next school year.

    Senior Contract was distributed to each 12th grade student last Thursday and are due in the office by the end of the day on Monday.

    Please keep up to date on paying off any fines that you may have. Fines are charged to each student for replacement ID’s and lanyard, books, sport equipment that are not returned. Any student with unpaid fines will delay purchase of prom tickets, graduation tickets, and registration for 2018-19 school year.

    4th quarter progress reports will be distributed Thursday during 3rd period classes. If you are receiving a D or an F for the 4th quarter it is very important that you review your course syllabus, speak with your teacher, and complete all class work and homework assignments that are assigned to you. This is a special reminder to all seniors that you need to focus 100% throughout reminder of the 4th quarter. Graduation is something earned and cannot occur unless you have absolutely met 100% of all graduation requirements.

    The music programs will be holding their final performances for this school year on Tuesday, May 22nd at 7:00pm in the gym, don’t miss out on this spectacular event.

    Academic Award Night will be May 30th at 6:00pm, invitations will be sent to students and a parent invitation will be sent to the address we have on record.

    12th grade, are you thinking of community college a trade or a transition into a 4 year college or university?  Do you need some help on getting your application started or completed? Check in with the career center or counselor, we can help you!

     A couple of items that we need to address: 

    • Student Parking Lots: If you drive to school, make sure that you register your vehicle through the cashier’s office. Any vehicle that is not registered or parked in unauthorized areas will be ticketed.
    • Students are not to receive food from outside vendors or food purchased from outside vendors are not to be dropped off for students throughout the school day. If you need to drop off a lunch for you child it needs to be through the attendance office. Students are not permitted to leave campus during the lunch period.
    • Closed Campus Policy: Once a student is dropped off at school or arrives to school they are not to leave campus for any reason. This includes unauthorized trips to the parking lot.  If at any time a student needs to leave campus they need to check out through the attendance office.  Please remember that the student parking lot is off campus.

    Throughout the 4th quarter, we will be encouraging all students to come to school as if they were reporting to work.  This means that they present themselves throughout the school day with a focus that will earn an academic pay check.  Electronic devices need to be turned off, left at home, or out of sight during class time. All students need to comply with district dress code, all clothing need to be worn correctly without undergarments or excessive skin showing. We can’t get academically paid if we are not present to all classes on time. All students should be on campus by 8:10am, so they are not late to 1st period. Thank you for all your efforts to get all students on campus by 8:10am.
