HHS Class of 2022

Welcome to the Class of 2022 general information page.  Below you will find information on scheduled end-of-year Senior activities. If you have any questions, please call the high school main office at 248.328.3200


The Spring Awards Ceremony will take place on Friday, May 13th, beginning at 8:30 AM.  Traditionally, seniors are recognized for earning local and college scholarships and other community-based awards. This year we will also recognize underclassmen academic award winners, because we have been unable to recognize them previously due to the pandemic limitations. 

Those scheduled to attend the academic awards were notified in early March (2022).  Seniors award winners and scholarship receipts will receive invitations in mid to late April. 

A complete event schedule will be posted and shared with families in late April.

The last day for seniors to attend their regularly scheduled classes is Tuesday, May 17th. 

Senior taking end-of-course exams will report to the Learning Loft at the start of the school day on Wednesday, May 18th.  

All online Apex (for virtual students and SPARC students ) classes must be completed and submitted by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 18th. 

Seniors eligible for exam exemptions must meet ALL the following criteria:

  • 2 unexcused absences or fewer
  • 2 tardies or fewer
  • Must have a B- (80%) or better in the course
  • Parents must sign off on the exemption (even if you are 18 years old)
  • Exemption form must be submitted on time, no late forms will be accepted

Exemption forms will be delivered to first hour classrooms on May 9th May 11th.  They must be turned into the office no later than Wednesday, May 11th Friday, May 13th.  Even though an exemption form is turned in, final attendance will still be tabulated through May 17th.  If an absence removes a student's exam exemption, the student will be notified and must take the scheduled exam. 

Commencement Rehearsal is a required attendance event. Students are expected to clear their schedules to accommodate this requirement (work, appointments, vacation, etc.).

Rehearsal will take place on Wednesday, June 1st from 9:00 AM  - 1:00 PM in the auditorium.  We will complete the following activities during rehearsal:

  • Graduation rehearsal (entry and exit procedures for the O'Rena)
  • Review arrival times and procedures for June 3rd
  • Lunch
  • Cap and Gown pickup (including cords, stoles, etc.)
  • Graduation Tickets
  • Students will receive their CA-60 (report cards, student records, etc.)

Commencement tickets will not be finalized until all graduate information is complete.  This will take place during the week of May 23-27.  A spreadsheet and process for requesting additional tickets will be sent to families once we know the official count of the graduating class.

The Class of 2022 Commencement Ceremony will be held at Oakland University's O'Rena on Friday, June 3rd.  The program begins at 7:00 PM and typically lasts about 90 minutes.  

There is ample parking at the university, providing a short walk to the venue.  Doors will not open until 6:30 PM.  Guests MUST have a ticket to get into the event.  Tickets will be provided to graduates during cap and gown pickup on June 1. 

Maps, parking directions, and photography information will be posted when available and finalized.
