Welcome

  • We want to take this opportunity to extend a welcome to you as we begin another year at Halls High School. As we do each year, the Administration and Faculty are prepared to do our very best to provide a safe, academically challenging environment in order for you to pursue a goal that we both share--your graduation from high school. This is our goal for you, and it begins the day that you walk into the doors of this school. Along the way we will provide you with a quality education, with multiple extracurricular opportunities, and with the collective wisdom of a faculty that can impart “real world” knowledge into each day’s lesson plans.
     
    Halls High School Mission Statement 
    Our goal is to prepare each student to be thoughtful, confident and self-reliant, equipped with the knowledge and integrity to face the challenges of his/her complex world.

    Dear Parents of Ninth Graders,

    Welcome to Halls High School! The school year is rapidly approaching and this one is a special one for both your young student and yourself. The first year of High School can be a traumatic proposition for both student and parent and that is one reason that we believe that this Orientation Day is so important. We hope that your plans and schedules will allow you to attend. The simple act of the students orienting themselves to the building and our daily schedule will be of great benefit as we jump into things with both feet on the first day. We also believe that the scheduled time for questions of our Administrative staff will help ease your mind on our expectations and your potential concerns. We hope to see all of you there on the 9th!

     

    Disciplinary Concerns

    The following are not our only concerns for student behavior, but they are our most frequent and I want you to be advised before you receive a telephone call.

    Dress Code

    We do not anticipate any changes in our dress code for the 2016 – 2017 year. Our policy, which has been Board approved, stipulates that SHIRTS may not advertise any product or behavior which is deemed inappropriate for school by any school staff.  Shirts must cover the abdomen and the shoulders, and the front of the shirt must cover the chest. The dress code for shorts and skirts will also remain unchanged in that they must extend beyond the fingertips and be in close proximity to the knee. I encourage you to shop for fall clothing with this in mind.

    “Sagging” will not be tolerated.

    Public Display of Affection

    The State is contemplating passing legislation which would make it illegal for students to participate in “gateway sexual activity”. This is defined as hugging, kissing, and other intimate behavior. This has no place in a school setting and infractions will be subject to school discipline.

    Cell Phone Policy

    The use of cell phones is not allowed in any classroom. This also includes the ringing or vibrating of a cell phone while the student is in class. The “use of a cell phone” includes: talking, texting, reading a text or listening to a caller, the use of the internet or email, or checking the time on the cell phone. The progression of discipline will be outlined in your student’s Handbook.

    Bullying

    We will not tolerate bullying of our students in any manner. We will investigate all reports of bullying and prosecute those cases which cannot be stopped after intervention by the school.

    Money and Expensive Items

    Simply put; don’t bring large sums of money or expensive personal items to school. We cannot guarantee their security.

     

    I hope that some of this helps and that we will see you on the 4th. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!

  • ACT TESTING

    The ACT will be given to most Juniors on Tuesday, March 21st
    We will be testing down the social studies hallway and in to the Kimball/Polston flat tops.  
    We will not have a 3rd block that day, and will extend 1st and 2nd blocks:
    1st Block:  8:30-10:20
    Break:  10:20-10:30
    2nd Block: 10:30-12:22
    4th and 5th block and lunches will run on Late Start Wed. schedule.
    Some important things to remember that day:
     
    • There will be no bells or intercom that morning.  Please dismiss students by the above schedule.
    • Math Department needs to help steer students away from using the stairwells to the social studies hallway during class changes.  Also please be mindful not to excessively move desks around upstairs.  From experience, I know it can get pretty noisy in the SS classrooms.
    • Students coming to the main building from North Knox will need to use the Business Hallway entrance.  The SS entrance will be locked.
    • Students in the Social Studies Hallway will need to go to 1st lunch to allow for us more time to wrap up testing.  Please let your students know that ahead of time.
    • Any non-testing students who are assigned to one of the proctor's classroom's will need to report to the library during that block.
