The January 2015 exam schedule is now available. Updated: January 30, 2015
Due to the potential for more snow tonight into Friday morning, the high school will administer the Integrated Algebra Regents exam this afternoon, beginning at 12:30pm, instead of Friday morning. Each student scheduled to take the Integrated Algebra Regents is being called by a staff member to ensure they are aware of the change. If we delay for one hour tomorrow, all exams are still being administered, with the morning exams beginning at 9:30. If we delay for two or three hours tomorrow, Friday morning exams will be administered on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD morning. If school is closed tomorrow, all exams scheduled for Friday will be moved to TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD. If these changes have a conflict with a local midterm, the classroom teachers are scheduling a retake of their local exam with each student.

During the boys' JV and varsity home basketball games on Friday, January 16, the Hudson High School Student Council held a special fundraiser to support the Student Council Scholarship. Students had the opportunity to participate in duct taping Associate Principal Bob LaCasse to the wall at the cost of one dollar per yard of duct tape. Mr. LaCasse stood on a stool against the wall while students placed their duct tape, and when he was fully stuck on they removed the stool and watched Mr. LaCasse suspend for a few seconds. This enjoyable event will help pay for a scholarship for a deserving senior at the end of the year.
For the first year ever, the Hudson High School is participating in a new partnership called Hudson: Art Works. In this program, 15 students will be paired up with local professional artists to make self-portraits of themselves. Students will be randomly paired with their partners so as to promote new perspectives. Portraits can be made using any medium--paint, drawing, photography, sculpture, etc. From now through April, students will meet with their artist partners on their own time to work on their portraits. The portraits will be presented at the Hudson Opera House in May.
