  • Mr. Dufrene

  • Welcome Back Judges,

     The 2018-2019 school year is here and our staff is so excited to greet you as you enter the halls of John Handley High School!  We will kick things off on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, with our Handley Kick-Off (agenda is enclosed). The day begins with Freshman/New Student Orientation (12:00 PM), followed by upperclassmen schedule pick up (concession stand), food, football, and fun at the Handley Bowl (2:00 PM).  Then, we will wrap up the day with Freshman/New Student Orientation for parents (6:30 PM in the Patsy Cline Theatre). A great way to kick-off the 2018-2019 school year!

    Remember, school officially begins on Thursday, August 9th at 8:20 AM (please be on time).  Students will report directly to their Pride Time class to pick up their schedules and receive other important information that parents/guardians need to review, sign, and return as soon as possible.

    It seems like yesterday the Class of 2018 “walked the steps” at Graduation.  Now, the Class of 2019 will take the lead at John Handley High while the Class of 2022 will learn the “expectations of a Judge” (trust, respect, effort, attitude, courage, and pride).  We look forward to your arrival!

    The student information verification form has been mailed. Please check your child’s information and make any necessary changes on the form. Return the form to Handley as soon as possible. The student parking letter was also sent with this information form. (Payments can be made at the kick-off and before and after school.)

    Please mark your calendar for Wednesday, August 22rd...Back To School Night at John Handley High School at 6:30 PM to meet and greet first semester teachers.

     Students and families, together we can and will make a difference!  Let’s get involved and explore all the amazing opportunities we offer at John Handley High School.

     Go Judges,


    Mr. Mike Dufrene, Principal
