Spring has sprung and there are still yearbooks to be sold


This ad is to remind ALL Hughes students that NOW is the time to pre-order your yearbook. Do to the current number of yearbooks sold, we have reduced the number of yearbooks that will be printed. We still do have copies to sell and YOU can still order your copy for $35 cash. Just go to Room 802 before or after school and ask Mr. Streetz to help you order your copy.

But for how long?

Imagine its June 12.

You are in the 8th grade.

You and your friends are lining up outside of 802. You try to buy your 2015 Gavel. For $40 cash.

But there is a "Sold Out" sign posted.

Will that be the moment that you realize that you could have pre-ordered your Gavel for just $35 way back in March?

School Uniform Policy

We will continue to implement our school uniform policy. Adherence to the ID and uniform policy is required for attendance at Hughes. There is no doubt that the uniform policy reduces student misbehavior and allows us to focus on providing a meaningful instructional program for all students. Thank you for your support in our efforts to provide a safe and orderly environment.

  • Students must wear solid light blue, navy, or white collared shirts. Note: Plaids, stripes, sheer material or other designs will not be allowed.
  • Navy blue pants, shorts or skirts are permitted. Shorts must be thumb-tip length or longer when arms are down. Blue jeans may be worn provided they are in good condition and free of logos and designs (no frays, tears, holes, etc.). Students may not wear sweats or athletic wear. Royal blue, tuquoise, light baby blue or white washed are not permitted.
  • Solid navy blue leggings may be worn under skirts or shorts. Legging-like pants or skinny jeans must have pockets.
  • Only solid white, blue, grey or black sweaters, sweatshirts, and jackets will be allowed as outer wear. These must be logo free.
  • Only white, blue, black, or grey undershirts may be worn.

Hughes does not offer an on-site after school program. You will need to refer to outside agencies (Boys & Girls Club, YMCA, or a private agency) if you need an after school program for your student.
