Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery – May 7, 2021

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, or ASVAB, is scheduled only one time this year, May 7th. This battery is perfect for getting to know what you are good at or interested in doing for a career. Not just for those wanting to join the military, but for determining a college major or civilian career choice. Sign up using our google form and then simply show up at HHS on Friday, May 7th at 0830 in Guidance. You do not need to bring any supplies, besides your chromebook, as the testing agency provides what you need. On May 7th, wear your mask, turn off your electronics, bring your school issued chromebook (charged), and expect to be here from 0830 to around 1130. If anything changes, we will let you know via the HHS website.”

Chromebook Distribution Continues

Hickory High School continues to distribute Chromebooks for all students (both Option 1 AND Option 2) that have not yet checked one out during the hours of 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm, Monday thru Friday. The most efficient means for Option 1 students remains to bring a signed and completed Chromebook Loan and Use Agreement Form with them on the days that they are currently in attendance. Bringing a completed and signed form will greatly expedite the process. Forms are available on-site; however, a parent or guardian MUST be present to sign the forms before a Chromebook can be issued to a student.
