For its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, the Forest Hills High School student council has been recognized as a 2020 National Gold Council of Excellence by National Student Council (NatStuCo).
When principal Kevin Plue chose “Whatever It Takes” as the theme for his staff and students at Forest Hills High School this year, he didn’t know exactly what that might mean, and he definitely couldn’t foresee all that’s come along, but it doesn’t change the idea or the expectation.
The Forest Hills TTA class has been working diligently on their school-based enterprise, Jackets Java, their mobile coffee and hot chocolate business. Mrs. Jordan, the classroom teacher, won a grant from the Union County Education Foundation that provided funding for the start-up business kit for what the class calls Jackets Java, an affiliate of Bitty & Beau's Coffee Shop.
Congratulations to Mrs. Michelle Jordan for winning a $1500 LIFT Grant from the Union County Education Foundation. The money will help her class create a new school-based enterprise known as Jackets' Java. This mobile coffee business will benefit both her students who will run it and the staff members who will get the caffeine boost!

Juniors Meningococcal Vaccine Requirement - In 2015, the State of North Carolina added Meningococcal vaccine to the school required immunizations. The first dose of Meningococcal vaccine, MCV, was given to current juniors prior to the start of 7th grade as a school-required vaccine. The second dose of this vaccine is required prior to the start of the senior year, the 2020-2021 school year.
If your child has not had the 2nd dose of the MCV vaccine, please contact your child’s healthcare provider or the Union County Health Dept. to obtain it. Please submit a copy of the record showing evidence of the 2nd dose to the school’s front office. This documentation must be on file here at school prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year to meet this school enrollment requirement. Individuals born before 1/1/2003 are exempt from this requirement.
If you have any questions, Mrs. Medlin is available to you as a resource. Please contact her at 704-296-3025 or email email@example.com
