General Information (Check out FAQ page for additional help)
College Visits

Seniors are allowed two (2) days of college visits that do not count as absences. They must be pre-planned and the students have to bring documentation from the college visited. A letter from the parents is not enough to proof to label the absence as a college visit. Students need to inform the attendance office at least three days before the visit so that teachers and administrators can be notified. This is a district policy.

Senior Fees

Senior fees are $240 and include the cost of senior picnic, cap/gown, and all costs of graduation. They are to be submitted by cash or check made out to HSPVA and turned in to Ms. Herrera in the front office.    These fees are in addition to any art area fees/dues.

If a senior is unable to afford any of the costs associated with the senior activities, they are encouraged to see their counselor to arrange for alternatives. Students must be registered for free and reduced lunch in order to qualify. 
Senior Exemptions

Only seniors may be exempt from final exams and only during the spring semester.  Seniors must meet all four of the following criteria:

  • No more than 3 excused absences and no unexcused absences for the entire year in the combined ADA periods 2 and 6;
  • No more than 3 excused absences for the entire year and no unexcused absences for the class in which exemption is sought;
  • A minimum average of 85 for the fourth, fifth, and sixth six-week periods;
  • Discretion/additional requirements of the teacher.
