NEWS

Health Office Notification: Head Lice

Horizon Honors Elementary School has had cases of head lice. We identified six students in our First and Second Grades, one child in PreKindergarten, and one child in Kindergarten.    HCLC’s Health Office staff will continue to check students who may have been exposed or are exhibiting symptoms of head lice. Parents are required to notify HCLC when lice is detected. Students will be cleared to return to school by the Health Office after all nits and lice have been removed.  Please do your part by checking your child(ren) on a regular basis and if lice is detected, notify all others who may have been exposed. This is the best way to protect your family and our community. Head lice are small insects that live on the scalp. Head lice attach eggs to hair shafts called nits. Nits are smaller than a pinhead, typically located near the crown of the head, behind the ears, or at the nape of the neck. Head lice are spread primarily through close physical contact and sharing hats, brushes, or other personal items. Head lice cause itching and can be difficult to eliminate, but they do not pose a threat to health.  For more information about head lice and local treatment options, use the links below and do not hesitate to contact the Health Office with any questions or concerns.  http://www.headlice.org/ http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/prevent.html https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=lice%20treatment%20phoenix Thank you, HCLC Health Services (480) 659-3012...

Secondary School: 2016-2017 Student Schedules

We understand that many students have already noticed what appears to be a schedule for next school year in PowerSchool. Please understand that we are currently in test mode with scheduling, and are running simulations daily in order to create final schedules in May. The information in PowerSchool is NOT a 2016-2017 schedule and will continue to change due to these simulations. Do not be concerned if the information you see does not match your desires for next school year. We know this part of PowerSchool causes much confusion and unfortunately there is no ability to turn off the display. We ask that you please refrain from contacting the counselor and/or advisor until you see your final schedule via the Course Verification process, which will be held in May. Thank you for your...
