As we prepare to wrap up the first quarter, I am extremely pleased to say that the reopening of the school has been a success. I would personally like to thank all the staff, students and parents for trusting us with the process and continuing to be flexible and work hard during this unprecedented time. Although we know that this change was inevitable, I believe that the students greatly benefit from having access to their learning when they work directly with the teachers. I have observed many classrooms throughout the building and I am proud of the work that our team has put into place to support students learning in multiple settings. We continue to monitor spacing and options for increasing student numbers as they return to face to face learning. Our Intervention team will continue to focus on identifying the population that needs the highest academic support as we move into our second quarter.
We have two picture days set up for our In-school students. The forms will be sent home the Monday before their scheduled picture day. The first quarter grades will close on Oct. 16. You can contact the office to get help setting up your Progress Book account to view your child’s grades if you haven’t done so yet. We will also be sending out more information about our Parent Teacher Conferences soon. This year HMS will be providing virtual conferences by appointment only.
As always, if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-282-3481.
