Hello Cougar Family, The HWH School District is providing support to all of our impacted scholars and their families due to the water crisis. We understand the unprecedented hardship that this situation has caused and the impact on student attendance. The district was able to provide a time period of flexibility that allowed absences to be excused; but beginning Monday February 5, 2024, the district must return to recording absences per board policy 4.7 which defines excused and unexcused absences. The district understands that there may be times that some students may miss due to unique circumstances. The administration will work with those families on a case by case basis. Thank you for your cooperation and as always it's a great day to be a Cougar.
