Technology for Virtual Learning

HCPS will provide iPads for all students in grades PreK-Kindergarten and Chromebooks for all students in grades 1-5 in order to support virtual learning this fall. Those devices are currently being configured and prepared for distribution, and your school will be communicating with you at the appropriate time to arrange for reservations and instructions for pick-up. Distribution for fall virtual learning will occur in various phases beginning no earlier than the week of August 10. We will communicate the specific dates as soon as they are finalized.


Please do NOT go to one of our four “mobile technology hubs” at this time to request an iPad or Chromebook for fall virtual learning, as the sites will not be equipped with devices for you.

Upcoming Principal Chats

In an effort to gather feedback from our families, I will be holding three virtual "Principal Chat" opportunities. The purpose of these meetings is to solicit answers to the following key questions:


  • What programs and/or systems are working well at this school?
  • What do you hope to get out of me as a leader?
  • What are some of the roles that parents can play in supporting the improvement of the school?
  • What is the one thing that you would like to see happen before the end of this school year that would let you know the school is moving in the right direction?


Please see the dates and times below. Hopefully, one of these opportunities will accommodate your schedule. I look forward to "seeing" and listening to everyone!


  • August 3, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
  • August 3, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • August 5, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
