I hope you and your family are having a wonderful summer. After the rapid shift to a virtual platform for continuity of learning in the spring, everyone was ready for a summer break. As you may already know, our school system has spent these months in work groups to address what school will look like for the 2020-2021 school year. First, please make sure you have noted the school system calendar changes. School begins for students on September 8, 2020. The adjusted calendar is definitely an important bookmark for families. Schools will operate virtually for Semester 1. The student schedule incorporates a 4x4 semester schedule, which allows students to take 8 courses, instead of the 7-course model that we have traditionally followed. To complete each students schedule requests, one of four things occurred:

With the changes to the recently revised Board of Education Policy 8020 Grading and Reporting: Middle and High School, middle and high schools will not distribute interims. The purpose of grading and reporting is to provide timely, meaningful feedback to students and their parents/guardians. Instead of interims, secondary students and parents/guardians are encouraged to regularly monitor progress via the grade book in HCPSS Connect - Canvas. Elementary school teachers do not use Canvas for grading and will continue to distribute interims. Middle/high school students and parents/guardians can use the directions in this post to access current course assignment scores and grade averages.
