Homework-FREE Vacations

After much conversation through advisories and examining data regarding the need to reduce the stress students are feeling, and with overwhelming support from the faculty, Holliston High School is implementing three homework free vacations during winter break, February Vacation and April Vacation. 

As we approach the first of these vacations, HHS wanted to remind the community that no homework will be assigned for any classes in order to provide students an opportunity to rest, relax and reconnect with families. With the busy lives our students have, their participation in clubs, activities and athletics, as well as part-time jobs and other commitments, we hope that this change will have a positive effect on students and families.

Happy Holidays,
