Dear Parents and Students,
Please review dress code here.  Suggested clothing choices are polos, oxfords, or crew neck T- shirts worn with jeans or khakis.  Tennis shoes, loafers, or sandals with back straps are fine choices for footwear.  ID Badges are to be worn daily as part of the dress code. Badges must be worn as this is a safety issue.   Lost ID Badges may be replaced for $5.00 paid in cash. Dress code should be followed upon entering the campus until exiting the grounds.

This is an important message for parents regarding funding for Haines City High School. If you have not filled out a free or reduced lunch form for this year this must be done by Monday 9.29.

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:

We welcome our students for the 2014-15 school year.  the new seven period day bell schedule, as well as orientation and registration information  for students. Please note the theme of the new dress code, “Are you covered?”  Students should arrive to HCHS each day dressed for success and ready to learn.  Our new daily schedule notes our new start time of 7 a.m. and end of the day release time of 2:00 p.m.  These hours will be standard across the district for all high schools.  Students will have seven class periods every day. 

Listed below are some important dates and information:

The link can be accessed through the Polk Schools Nutrition website at http://www.polk- fl.net/parents/generalinformation/nutrition.htm after August 1st.  We encourage ALL parents to complete this form even if the family may not qualify for assistance as this correlates to HCHS/IB Title One funding.

Our goal is to create a safe learning environment so that students may pursue their interests, meet all state graduation requirements, and learn to make good choices as they complete their high school years.  We are looking forward to this school year and will strive to meet the needs of our students.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at trish.butler@polk-fl.net at any time or call 421-3281.
