What do I do if…
I GET LOST?
Ask an adult for directions, or consult the map on the wall at a corridor intersection.
I LOSE MY SCHEDULE?
See any Secretary. She will print another copy of your schedule for you.
I FORGET MY LUNCH?
Make a friend quickly!
MY LOCKER WON’T OPEN?
Check the locker combination or go to the Attendance Office to get your combination again.
I MISS MY BUS HOME?
Call your parents from Hall's office phone or take the late bus home. The late bus runs at 4:00 p.m. on full days, and at 3:00 p.m. on short Wednesdays.
I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY SCHEDULE?
Make an appointment to see your School Counselor. However, you must follow your printed schedule until the changes have been made.
I GET SICK IN SCHOOL?
Ask your teacher for a pass to see the school Nurse. Never leave school without an official dismissal.
I COME TO SCHOOL LATE?
Before 8:00 a.m. go straight to your first period class. After 8:00 a.m. sign in at the Attendance window behind the Main Office.
I’M LATE FOR CLASS?
You may have to stay after school to serve a 15-minute detention for the teacher. Failure to serve a detention can result in an office referral.
I’M ABSENT FROM SCHOOL?
Have your parent or guardian call in your absence to the Main Office that morning. Call your teachers’ voice mailboxes to get assigned homework. Also, you can request to have your teachers put your homework assignments in the homework drawer in the Main Office so that your parent or guardian can pick it up. Bring a note from your parent or guardian to the Attendance window behind the Main Office the day you return to school.
I LOSE MY BOOK?
Check the Lost and Found in the Main Office or look in the Library. You are responsible for all lost library books and textbooks. Lost library books and textbooks are paid for through the Library Secretary. Lost textbooks must be paid for before a new textbook can be issued to you.
I NEED EXTRA HELP WITH MY CLASS WORK?
You can do any of the following:
- Make an appointment to see your teacher outside of class time.

WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE?
A sample freshman year schedule may be:
WHAT ARE THE GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AT HALL?
You need a minimum of 21 ¾ credits to graduate from Hall. Many students accumulate more credits. Specific area requirements are four credits of English, three credits each of mathematics and Social Studies, two credits of Science, one credit of Fine Arts and/or Applied Arts, 1 ¾ credits of P.E. and Health combined, and seven additional elective credits. It is important to note that though a student may have met Hall's graduation requirements, college admission requirements tend to be more rigorous and therefore require more credits (e.g. four years of Mathematics, three to four years of a foreign language).
WHAT IF I AM INTERESTED IN EARLY GRADUATION?
Most students will graduate from Hall after completing four years (Grades 9-12) and having earned the required number of credits. A student considering graduating early should discuss this with his or her School Counselor by the end of the first semester sophomore year. If approved for early graduation, the student will then be moved into the junior class and his or her GPA will be considered within that framework. If the student does not complete the process by the end of the first semester sophomore year, the student will take the state CAPT with the sophomore class.
WHERE SHOULD MY PARENTS DROP ME OFF IF THEY GIVE ME A RIDE TO SCHOOL?
Your parents should drop you off in front of the main entrance of the school.
IS THERE HOMEROOM EVERY DAY?
No, your day at Hall always starts in the room of your scheduled first period class. Homeroom occurs only when there is a specific reason, and it is announced the day before as well as the day of the homeroom. Homeroom may be scheduled between first and second periods or at the end of the day, and the start and end times of classes are changed to accommodate the homeroom.
