HHS alum Ronald Ross will be a featured speaker. “We’ll hand out packets and give them the scoop for the day and the rest of the year,” said HHS assistant principal Brenda Wilson. “It’s a really cool event that we put together to help sophomore students get acclimated to Hobbs High School.”
Parents with questions about the first day of school or other matters should contact the school their child is scheduled to attend.
