From The Principal:

Greetings Hornet families!


Don't forget... Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Thursday, March 11th 4:00-7:00p.m.  Conferences will be held virtually. Please be sure to log-on for your scheduled appointment.  Thank you for partnering with us.

Our Hybrid students will be returning for four days of in-person/face-to-face instruction beginning Monday, March 15th.  Students will not be assigned to a cohort or getting their instruction via TEAMS.  Students will still be expected to bring their laptop computer to school daily and will continue to log-on to Schoology to access and submit assignments while attending for face-to-face instruction.  Heritage Virtual Academy students will continue to work from home for the remainder of the school year.

The safety of our students and staff is our top priority.  Lockers will not be in use at this time.  To maximize space in the classroom, please remind your student to avoid bringing unnecessary items to school.  We will continue to follow the appropriate safety guidelines and protocols.  This includes daily pre-screening for all staff and students, wearing mask/face coverings, frequent handwashing, use of hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes and other required PPE.  While in the building, we will distance students to the greatest extent possible.  Assigned seating will be enforced in the classroom and in the cafeteria for contact tracing purposes.

All the best,

Mrs. Beebe
