Student Daily Schedule

blank calendar pictureStudents and Parents,

HHS is excited to welcome you back for the 2020-2021 school year.  Please note the instructional times for our students in the daily block schedule. We look forward to our first day of virtual learning on September 8.

Chromebook Distribution

Chromebook pictureAs you are aware, the CPS School Board approved funds for all secondary students (Grades 6-12) to receive Chromebooks for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to COVID and the wide demand for this technology, the Chromebooks for this 1:1 initiative will not arrive until after the beginning of the school year.  To ensure that all students have a successful start,  Hickory High School will distribute the Chromebooks we have in the building to students who need a device in order to access instruction until Chromebooks for the 1:1 initiative arrive.  Please note that if your child has a personal laptop or a computer that he or she can use now to access instruction, he/she will still be able to have a Chromebook once we receive the computers for the 1:1 initiative.
This current distribution is for students whose parents indicated that they needed a device when completing the Family Choice Form. Right now, we have enough devices to provide one Chromebook per family for those who  answered the following for whether their child had a personal device or who have since contacted us about a need because of the following reasons:
  1.  No device access
  2. Device shared with family members
  3. Smartphone only
  4. Any public device (Library, community center, etc.)
HHS will conduct drive-through Chromebook distribution Wednesday, September 2, and Thursday,September 3.
Wednesday, September 2: Grades 11 and 12 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
Thursday, September 3: Grades 9 and 10 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Responsive Return to School Plan – Make Your Choice by July 31

The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has made planning for the 2020-21 school year very difficult for schools and families alike. Preparing for a new school year under normal circumstances is a tough job and involves a lot of hard work and planning.  This year, as we continue to navigate uncertain conditions, that task becomes much more difficult.

GOALS:
To safely bring our students and staff back to school.
To outline safety measures and mitigation strategies for safe, on-campus learning.
To provide families with two options to meet the educational needs of their children.

RETURNING TO LEARNING: FAMILY CHOICE

Our goal is to bring all students back to school, and it is our hope that the COVID-19 situation will improve allowing us to return to normal operations. Until that time, a great deal of uncertainty remains. We believe it is important to consider the needs of all of our students and the unique situations each family faces during this time. A full presentation to the School Board about these options was provided on July 6, 2020. Families can make their choice beginning July 9, 2020, through July 31, 2020, using ParentVUE (see detailed instructions).

CPS will also host four Virtual Family Forums to provide families with additional information. Register for one of these sessions. 

CHANGING STUDENT COURSE REQUESTS

Student schedules will be developed using the course requests verified by students and parents in the spring of 2020.  Due to the need to align student schedules with new school reentry plan, and to comply with VA state COVID health and safety guidelines, schedule changes made after July 21 will only be considered if necessary to meet graduation requirements.  Contact  your child’s school counselor for information about schedule changes.

Summer Hours by Appointment Only
