Latest Communication

November 15, 2020

Dear Parents,

As you may have seen this evening, Governor Whitmer announced the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services order to protect health care workers and slow the impact COVID-19 is having on our community. While we still have several questions that need to be answered, our plan is to maintain in-person instruction for all grades on Monday and Tuesday this week before we move into remote learning for kids in grades PK-12, at least until December 9. While the epidemic order explicitly states that high schools are closed to in-person instruction through December 9, it provides that districts must make their own determination regarding maintaining in-person instruction for students in grades PK-12. Due to the current number of HPS staff and students that are currently adversely affected by the COVID-19 at this time, we will be closing in-person instruction in all of our buildings beginning Wednesday, November 18.

As you know from my email this past Friday, we will not be in session on Monday or Tuesday the week of Thanksgiving. Using our 2020-21 Return to School Plans developed for Phases 1-3, our staff and administrators will finalize details and schedules for learning during the first few days of closure. Your child's schedule for remote instruction will be shared with you by your child's teacher(s).

All athletic and extracurricular activities are put on hold until further notice.

This continues to be a fluid situation, so we ask for your patience as we make the best decisions possible for our staff and students. Information related to food service, childcare, and technology distribution will be shared by your children's building principal later this week.

Survey Results and TownHall Meetings

We will periodically be emailing surveys to our families throughout the summer. Your feedback is important to us and taken into consideration. If you feel as if you have not received a survey, please email [email protected] and let us know your current email addres so we can make sure to add it to our parent database.
