Graduation Tickets

Greetings Hornet Nation Families,

Due to new procedures set in place by the RP Funding Center, ALL graduation events held at the RP Funding Center will now use a ticket system for each graduate’s guest. This is necessary to ensure the safety of our graduates and their families. To ensure a fair system for all graduates, we are asking each graduate to submit a TICKET REQUEST FORM to Mrs. Edmonston (box and office located in Student Services). The request will require a parent/guardian signature. It is important that everyone knows this is just a request and we will do our best to accommodate families’ needs. If your student does not plan on walking at graduation, please let us know so we can have those tickets available for other student’s. Also, if your graduate does not submit a signed request form by the January 31, 2019 deadline, they will be counted as needing zero (0) tickets. Once the form is submitted to HCHS no additions will be allowed. Please know this is a new procedure for all of us and it is now a reality due to the increased graduation success of our student body!

A note from the RP Funding Center:

For safety and security, all guests will walk through metal detectors. Alternatives (wands) will be available for anyone who can not walk through the metal detectors OR who set the detectors off.


We Are Hornet Nation,


Adam Lane

Principal, Haines City High School

Youth Leadership Program Candidates

The Youth Leadership Program is a prestigious program that allows students to gain knowledge about the city and state government. Students also learn valuable leadership and networking skills and opportunities. 14 students applied and were interviewed for the program yesterday and will find out if they were selected to be a part of the program by the end of the week. Here are a few pictures of the applicants and the goodies and décor put together by Becky Rhodes our Title I specialist! Please give these kids your support as they wait to hear back if they made it!

Student ID Replacement Reminder

This is a friendly reminder that student IDs must be worn at all times at Haines City High School. A replacement ID costs $5.00 each time a student must have another one printed. This amount is added as an obligation if the student can not pay the $5.00 on that day.
