A Message from Dr. Blount
The Hutsell online learning is off to a great start. Thank you for collaborating with teachers to make sure our students are engaged and learning. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have questions or require support using the new platform.
For Week 4 of Online Learning, we are continuing the transition to campus created content boards. Our teachers have been working hard to create engaging activities for your children. Students should focus on completing the Hutsell Content Boards first and if time permits, students may work on the district choice board activities. Enjoy the week!

Hutsell Elementary Principal
We may not be in school, but... the learning doesn't stop! This week's theme is KINDNESS
Participate in Our District's Kindness Challenge!
The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted us all in a variety of ways. In a time where physical distancing is required, social and emotional connectedness is even more vital to a person’s well-being. To combat this challenging time, we are encouraging students and staff to participate in Character Strong’s 30 Days of Kindness. Kindness will not stop the spread of the virus, but the hope is to brighten someone’s day and add some positivity to our lives and community.
You can e-mail our counselor, Mrs. Benavides if you'd like more information or if you'd like to share how your family is participating in this challenge.
Online Learning Week 4
This week your child’s homeroom teacher will send a Content Board (note the change in name from Choice Board to Content Board). The most important pieces will be the mini-lessons from teachers. Again, if any assignment is frustrating in nature after your child has tried completion for approximately 10-15 minutes, please stop and let your child’s teacher know.
Please use the guide below to use Canvas from MyKaty Cloud.
