REMINDER: CALENDAR CHANGES
Due to the school closures in April, the Horizon Honors Elementary School calendar will be extended by two instructional days. Please reference the following calendars for up-to-date school and event information:

Horizon Honors Elementary School Events: http://www.horizonhonorselementary.org/calendar

NOTE:  Horizon Honors Secondary School (Grades 7-12) will remain on the original calendar, as there were no school closures.  

Horizon Honors Elementary School Notable Calendar Updates:
Regular Instructional Full Days:
Wednesday, June 6 & Thursday, June 7

Finals/Early Release Days:

The school's charter agreement requires Horizon Honors Elementary School to provide 180 instructional days each school year. The school is not allowed to use overage of required instructional minutes to makeup for school days lost during the April school closures. You may hear that other schools and districts are using instructional minutes to makeup time for closures, but our school's charter does not allow for that flexibility. The school may request an exception directly from Arizona Department of Education Superintendent Diane Douglas. However, the process could be lengthy and is not guaranteed. We know families cannot wait for this vital information, so we will not be pursuing an exception. 

We understand that the extension of the school year may impede on your previously scheduled summer plans. If you have a conflict and your child will not be able to attend the last two days of school, please contact our attendance office at attendance@horizonclc.org with any absence details, as well as your child's teachers, so arrangements can be made as soon as possible to accommodate individual situations.


ATTENTION 6TH GRADE PARENTS!
The 6th graders are very excited to see the courses they'll be taking in middle school next year.  Next week, on Tuesday, May 15th, all 6th graders scheduled to enter Horizon Honors Middle School for the 2018-19 school year will receive a Course Verification Form.  The form includes a list of courses into which they've been scheduled for 7th grade.  Please look over the list and make sure there are no errors.  If there are no errors, both student and parent will sign to verify the courses.  Remember, this is just a list of courses in no particular order.  This is not the schedule.  If your child is enrolled in an honors math course, both student and parent will sign on the Honors/AP agreement line.  Please return the signed course verification forms to either the elementary front office or the secondary front office no later than Tuesday, May 22nd.  If you have any questions regarding your child's courses, please contact Heather Wallace at heather.wallace@horizonclc.org.
