Attendance Counts. Be Here. Every Day, All Day.
Welcome HWHS Attendance Central

This is the place to keep you informed and aware about attendance issues and/or resources available to help support you. It is our ultimate goal to help your child earn their High School Diploma and be prepared for the next phase in their life. HJUHSD recognizes that all excessive absences, whether excused or unexcused, place students at risk of not graduating and will, therefore, make a concerted effort to keep students in school. 

Here at HWHS we want to develop a positive partnership with you and your student. We believe in a team effort and realize that it will take all stakeholders to prepare the foundation for your student and ultimately prepare them for the challenges of life. Our staff, teachers, and Administration hope to work with you and by doing so it is our hope that your student reach their full potential. 
Missing School = Missing Out
