Summer Session @ UHE!

Dear University Highlands Summer Session Families,

As the school year comes to a close, Summer Session is gearing up!  Please see below for some information to help you on day 1:

What can I expect on day 1?

Our first day of classes is Wednesday, July 3rd and our last day is Friday July 19th. Teachers will meet their classes outside and students will enter through designated outside doors only, both of which are located in the rainbow crosswalk area (alongside the field).  Room numbers, course names, and class lists will be posted in each line up location for your reference.

You can find the site supervisor, Ms. Holliday, in a safety vest outside the school Wednesday morning if you need any assistance.  In addition, we will have all courses and attendance lists posted on a board outside for your reference. We will be there to help you find your way on the first day.

Wondering if there is space in a different course? 

Please line up and visit the secretary, Ms. Sugiyama, who will be at a table near the rainbow crosswalk area. We will be accepting course change/registration queries on a first come first serve basis, using a QR code for you to scan and fill out your contact info online. Please note you will need a device and internet access to do this. After you have filled out the online form, there is no need to stay.  We will call you after attendance is completed, when we have a better idea of which courses may have room.
