Friday October 28th is the first all grade dance from 4:00 – 5:30pm. The dance’s theme is Hollywood Stars.  Students may purchase a ticket for $5.00 next week before school and during 4th lunch.  Students must have a signed permission slip, available from Mr. Ahrens in B-4, Mrs. Mackey in 307 and the School Loop Locker, as well as a School Loop print-out showing no F’s and no more than one D.  Students who purchase tickets will be given a wristband to wear on Friday that allows them to dress with the theme of the dance, dressing like a movie star or getting dressed up.  Please make sure though to follow LBUSD dress code guidelines.  Come be a star!

Office Hours

8 am - 4:30 pm

Bell Schedule

The school day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:40 pm. Students may not be on campus after 3:50pm unless they are in a school sponsored activity. Parents, please pick up your children from school as soon as possible so students are not lingering in front of the school. To assist us, please make arrangements with friends or family to have a place for your child after school.

2016 School Uniform Policy

We will continue to implement our school uniform policy. This is a revised policy as of August 2015. 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. No sheer blouses that reveal undershirts are allowed.
  • Navy blue pants, just above the knee shorts (2-4" above the knee) or skirts are permitted. Dark 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.
  • Only solid white, blue, gray or black sweaters, sweatshirts, and jackets will be allowed as outer wear. These must be logo free.
  • Only white, blue, black, or gray undershirts may be worn.

After School Program

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.
