    If you missed picking up your cap and gown last week, you may pick it up on Thursday, May 28, 2020, from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM

    We are working diligently on a plan for graduation that will honor the success of students comprising the Hazleton Area High School Class of 2020. We recognize how hard each one of our seniors has worked over the last 13 years. Members of our graduating class deserve a first-class ceremony to celebrate their high school accomplishments.

    Administration has met with members of Student Council, along with Class Officers, to discuss the formulation of a plan. Once details are finalized, an announcement will be made detailing the final product. Please remember that we need to adhere to all governmental and/or local ordinances during this pandemic. The last thing we want to do is jeopardize the health and the well-being of any of our students and/or any members of our staff.

    Any finalized graduation plan will include both the Class of 2020 Commencement Ceremony and the Class of 2020 Distinguished Graduate Medal Ceremony.



    Hazleton Area High School Clase de 2020

    Estamos trabajando diligentemente en un plan de graduación que honrará el éxito de los estudiantes de 2020 de la escuela secundaria de Hazleton área. Reconocemos cuán duro ha trabajado cada uno de nuestros estudiantes en los últimos 13 años.  Los miembros de nuestra clase de graduación merecen una ceremonia de primera clase para celebrar sus logros en la escuela secundaria.

    La administración se ha reunido con los miembros del Consejo Estudiantil, junto con los Oficiales de la Clase, para discutir la formulación de un plan. Una vez que se finalicen los detalles, se hará un anuncio que detalla el producto final. Recuerde que debemos cumplir con todas las ordenanzas gubernamentales y / o locales durante esta pandemia. Lo último que queremos hacer es poner en peligro la salud y el bienestar de cualquiera de nuestros estudiantes y / o miembros de nuestro personal.

    Cualquier plan de graduación finalizado incluirá tanto la Ceremonia de Inicio de la Clase de 2020 como la Ceremonia de Medalla de Graduado Distinguido de la Clase de 2020.

    Testing for Upper Classmen

    Upper classmen who are interested in attending the Academy beginning in the 2020-2021 school year had to be postponed from April to a date yet to be determined. As soon as students are allowed in the HAAS building, I will set a testing date and time. I will accommodate anyone who cannot make the date and time I set by letting you test by appointment with me. If students are not allowed in over the summer, I will look at alternative methods to accept you.

    COVID-19 Review and Enrichment

    Dear Students and Parents or Guardians, 

    Your child's teachers now have their classes open on Edgenuity. Their is a link above to login and information in the link you will find in the red box on the left of the webpage called, "Parent/Student Edgenuity Resources". The teachers may continue to do most of their instruction on Schoology, Slack, or from their webpage. Your child should still login to Edgenuity for attendance and to look for work or links to other sites. This is how we will keep track of who is logging in and if the students work on any assignments in Edgenuity, they will get credit towards the class they are working on. They should work on any incomplete work from the end of Quarter 3 the week of 5/4/20 and begin Quarter 4 work on 5/11/2020.

    I hope all of you are safe and healthy in every way. We will get through this together. Rest assured, we will continue to do the best we can for all students. All we can ask in return, is that you do your best, as well. Please be patient with us and with the technology  issues you are having. 

    If your child has not been in contact with their teacher, please email them or login to Edgenuity as soon as possible. You may also email me. 

    Thank you and best wishes to all of you as we go through this pandemic. Feel free to email me with questions or concerns.
