Tutoring  

 Teacher tutoring has started!  Each teacher offers one hour of tutoring weekly.

Absent/tardy

All students who are tardy need to come through the main office to receive a tardy note. 

If your student is tardy or absent from class please send a note stating the dates of the absence and the general reason for the absence.  After 3 days, an uncleared absence becomes a truancy. Students with truancies will be assigned Saturday detention.  All absence notes can be sent either via email at office@ht-la.org or the student may bring a physical copy to the main office. Please call 818-609-2687 with any questions you may have.

 

If your child is out sick and has a COVID symptom we are asking families to go get a COVID test completed before they can return to school.  We want to keep everyone on campus as safe as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
