Hodag Conferences

Junior students and/or their parent(s) are invited to schedule a HODAG Conference, an individual meeting with their assigned counselor.  The HODAG Conference is an opportunity to review graduation progress, discuss course selections for senior year, gain information about postsecondary planning and admission requirements, and ask questions that you or your child may have. This is not a parent teacher conference or a meeting to discuss discipline issues.

The conference is approximately 20-30 minutes and are available by appointment during the school day between 7:45 and 3:00.

We realize many parents are working during the school day and may not be able to attend. We want to assure you that an individual meeting will be held with the student even if a parent is unable to attend.

To schedule an appointment, please call Student Services at 715-365-9517.

Selective Service System Online Registration


Selective Service System Online Registration

Attention Male Students Turning 18 Years of Age

REGISTRATION: You must register within 30 days of turning 18 years of age. A valid social security number is required for online registration. You can register with Selective Service by clicking here: https://www.sss.gov/RegVer/wfRegistration.aspx

If you do not have a social security number, you must register by filling out a paper registration form, signing, and mailing it.

Male students who fail to register with Selective Service are ineligible for Federal student loan and grant programs, including Pell Grants, Federal Work Study, and Stafford Loans. (Parents who want to borrow a PLUS loan do not have to satisfy the registration requirement.) Several states have also made Selective Service registration a prerequisite for state financial aid and for matriculation at public colleges and universities. Even if you disagree with the requirement, you must register. Failure to register can have a serious negative impact on your ability to obtain a driver's license, qualify for financial aid, pursue an education, or obtain employment.


Students are always welcome to stop in Student Services with questions.
