Hornet Hive

All Chesapeake Middle Schools will resume conducting their after-school study hall program this year. Bus transportation will NOT be provided. Our study hall program will begin on Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

Your child is invited to join us, Tuesday and Wednesday after school in the Media Center until 4:00 p.m. The overall goal of the program is to give all students a quiet environment to complete assignments or tasks from the classroom. We are committed to ensuring that each student in our school will have every opportunity for success this year. Your child may receive assistance or extra help on work that is currently being studied. However, this is not a one-on-one or small group tutoring program.

All students in study hall are entitled to a quiet, orderly learning environment. Students are expected to be engaged in academic study or other graded projects during the study hall period. All Code Of Conduct expectations still apply (including use of cell phones) during study hall. Therefore, students who disturb the learning environment by socializing will forfeit their opportunity to participate in study hall.

Pick up for study hall is at the FRONT of the building. Please make sure you arrive at Deep Creek Middle School before 4:00 p.m. If late pickup becomes a repeated concern, your child may not be able to continue to participate in the study hall program.

If you have any questions regarding Hornet Hive, please contact Mrs. Kimberly Dezern, Academic Advisor, at 757-558-5321.
