The library hours are 7:30-4:30 Monday-Friday. After hours, students have online access to research databases, online encyclopedias, research guides, citation generators, and audio books in the catalog. Passwords are required to access online sources when off-site. Students can find database passwords shared in their Google Drive under "Database Passwords." A few online subscriptions, such as NY Times access, is only available in the school building. Each HHS student can receive a Howe Library card which allows them access to Howe materials.
A student who needs to reschedule an exam should appeal to the Principal in writing. If a reschedule is approved, a form will be issued to arrange a new time to take the exam between the student, the student's parent/guardian, the teacher, and the department coordinator.
Once an agreement is made and all parties have signed the form, the form is due to the attendance secretary in the main office.
To Register a Concern with a Course or Evaluation:
When issues emerge, Council encourages the student to first speak with the teacher. If there is no resolution, the student should contact the teacher’s supervisor (if applicable). If there is still no resolution, then Council provides this recourse:
If a student wishes to register a concern, then the student must do so in writing (typed or handwritten, but printed and signed) to a Curriculum Committee member of Council or submit the Course Concern Form. The Curriculum Committee will then notify the following persons about this concern: the teacher, the teacher’s supervisor (if applicable), the principal. The Curriculum Committee will remove the student’s name from the letter unless otherwise requested by the student. The Curriculum Committee will give the letter to the principal. The Curriculum Committee will keep no permanent records of the concern. The Curriculum Committee respectfully requests that, insofar as possible in keeping with the teacher’s privacy rights, the teacher’s supervisor or the principal inform the committee of any action taken so that the Curriculum Committee can provide feedback to the student.

If your are involved in an academic integrity incident you will speak with the teacher and the Dean of Students, and your parents will be notified. You can chose to take the base consequence outlined in the handbook, go through the restorative practices process, or you can appeal to the Judiciary Committee.
We do not have enough parking for every student to drive a car to school. Students wishing to park in our limited parking spaces must apply for a parking permit.
Students applying for a parking permit must have a valid license by the date of issue. All designated student spaces will be distributed in the following order of priority:
- Hardship Students
- Seniors (by lottery if spaces available)
Hardship parking is defined as a situation that is out of the control of the student. This burden would require a student to drive their vehicle to school in order to attend their classes on a daily basis. The following circumstances DO NOT apply for Hardship:
- Extracurricular activities (before or after school)
- Students that have access to bus routes
Hardship applicants should come with a letter from their family, signed by themselves and their guardians, stating their hardship. Acceptance of Hardship situations is at the discretion of the Dean of Students.
If your child is having a technical issue with their Chromebook, they should bring their Chromebook to the Computer Lab. If your child has left their Chromebook at home, your child may borrow a Chromebook from the departmental resource center of any class that requires them to use their Chromebook. Students should bring their Chromebook to school charged. Chargers are not available to be borrowed, but charging stations are located in the library and computer lab.
The following guidelines are to be encouraged while students are on school property during school hours:
- Clothing that contains words or graphics referring to alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, and tobacco should not be worn.
- Clothing with obscene or sexual references in words or graphics should not be worn.
