Dear HJT1 Families,
Please see the important message below regarding today's Snow Day, along with our January family newsletter.

INCLEMENT WEATHER UPDATE:
Happy snow day! It was not anticipated that the weather would require a school closure today; thus, students were not sent home with their Chromebooks which would have been required in order to have voluntary (no attendance taken) at-home virtual learning. 

In the future, if the District determines ahead of time that there is a possibility of a school closing due to inclement weather, here is the process for participating in at-home virtual learning:

  • The District determines before the end of the school day that classes will be cancelled the following day in anticipation of inclement weather.
  • Students will be sent home with their Chromebooks and cords for families wishing to take advantage of at-home voluntary virtual learning on inclement weather days. Learning will be facilitated by school community coordinators and coaches. 
  • Principals will send out a message to families with directions and live links to access virtual learning from home.
