HJH Announcements

  • Upcoming District Academic Competition

    On Saturday, January 28, 2023, Hallsville Junior High will host the 2022-2023 District Academic Competition. HJH will welcome over 500 students and 150 adults from six local schools. The competition will include 51 events at three different grade levels ranging from calculator applications and chess puzzle solving to oral reading, spelling, and dictionary skills.

    February of 2020 marked the last time that HJH won the District Academic Championship, which is too long of a drought for the Bobcats. Many students have been practicing since October to hone their skills and they are looking forward to the opportunity to earn back the District crown.

    We would love to have your help with monitoring students or providing food for the visiting school personnel. For anyone that would like to volunteer, please contact Amanda Bradburry (abradburry@hisd.com) or Mark Gerald (mgerald@hisd.com).

    Thank you for supporting your child's participation in UIL Academics!

  • Attendance Reminders

    Attendance is taken every period at the Jr. High. Any student arriving late or leaving early will be marked absent for the periods that he/she missed. All absences, full or partial days, require documentation to be excused. If a student misses more than 20 minutes of a class without valid documentation, the student will be considered absent for this purpose.

    When a student is absent and returns to school, he/she MUST bring a note signed by the parent explaining the reason for the absence or a note from a doctor. Any absence of more than 5 consecutive days for illness will require a statement from a doctor verifying the illness. Parent notes must be turned in within 3 days of the absence.


    *Any documentation needing to be turned in can be done so through the reception desk or attendance office, or emailed directly to Mrs. Magallanes at emagallanes@hisd.com.


    The Texas Education Agency states that a student must attend a class 90% of the time it is offered to earn credit for that class. Students with less than 90% attendance will not earn credit and cannot be promoted to the next grade level. Both excused and unexcused absences count toward time missed in a class. The state will allow us to place a student in the next grade level if that student has completed a principal approved plan to recover attendance. You will be notified if your student falls below 90% attendance and requires credit recovery. Credit recovery classes will be scheduled starting January 14th.
