Welcome Back HHS,

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break! Now, that our batteries are recharged we must focus on getting back to work. By now everyone should have received their report card for the first nine weeks grading period. Remember, this represents fifty percent of the course, so it is vital that all students put forth their best effort the rest of the way in order to be successful.

We are Orange on the WVDE map and the Governor already ordered all schools to be remote learning Monday through Wednesday. So, we will be remote learning Monday through Friday this week in Hampshire County Schools. Students must connect with all their teachers during the week to assure their understanding of assignments posted in Schoology. Teachers will be available per block via TEAMS during school hours for additional instructional support. Students, please take advantage of these opportunities throughout the week.
