Attention Hughes students, families and staff, it’s time again to start raising money for Pennies for Patients!  This school-wide fundraiser supports the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and will run from Monday March 6th through Friday March 24th.  Students are encouraged to donate in their first period classes.  Students also have the opportunity to have their own fundraising box, just see Mrs. Mackey room 307 or Mr. Ahrens room B1 to pick one up.  Also to those who donate $3 dollars or more, you will receive a "Be a Life Saver" slip that you can post on grade-level posters for all to see. Join the battle against cancer by contributing to this year’s goal of $4000.  Be a life-saver!

Let's Make Hughes Litter Free

We are a Green Ribbon School!  Come join us to make a difference at Hughes on Fridays from 8:00 to 8:30 am.  Meet us at the Bike rack to do some litter busting!  We want our school to look clean and show why we earned the Green Ribbon in the first place.

Attendance Matters!

Attendance Matters!

Come on Hughes!  Let's end the school year well!  We are still below our attendance goal (bar #8).  Good attendance not only increases your chances for academic success but it also earns $$ for student programs at Hughes!

The Long Beach Public Library will offer an amnesty program for overdue book fines during the month of April, in celebration of National Library Month. From April 1 to April 30 the library will welcome back its overdue books and waive associated fines. Return any undamaged, overdue library materials to your local Long Beach Public Library location, and your overdue fines will be waived. If you have overdue fines from previously returned materials, donate a new book to the library and those fines will be waived, too.  For more information, visit the Long Beach Public Library in person or online at www.lbpl.org.

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.
