Hillsboro High School Students & Families:

The HHS Staff look forward to welcoming students back into our virtual classrooms on Monday, September 14, 2020, for our official start to the 2020-2021 school year. Below are a few reminders and resources you may find helpful as you prepare for the first day of classes:

The "Bell Schedule"

Students should plan for 20-30 minutes of live instruction at the beginning of each
period. Information on how to access those live sessions are detailed below.

Accessing Google Classroom

All teachers have successfully synced their Google Classrooms with their student rosters. This means that when students login with their HSD account at classroom.google.com they should see a Google Classroom for all courses they are enrolled in for Quarter 1. Rosters automatically sync with Google Classroom multiple times a day. Therefore, if a student’s schedule changes, within a few hours they should see the new course in their Google Classroom course list. If a student is missing a Google Classroom for a course they are enrolled in for Quarter 1 (listed in StudentVue) please view this document to locate the join code. Please only join a class manually if it is on the Q1 schedule, but the Google Classroom is not showing in course lists. Students must be logged in to their HSD account to access the classroom code document.

Accessing Google Meet Links for Live Synchronous Periods:

Students will access the Google Meet link by logging into the Google Classroom.
Students should look for the Google Meet link in the classroom header OR as the most recent post at the top of the class stream on the homepage.

Communication with HHS Staff

HSD has not yet rolled out Remind for all courses. We do have the ability to message ALL students and ALL parents enrolled but individual course classes are still a work in progress. Until then, if a student or caregiver needs to reach a teacher, please visit our staff database for email addresses: https://www.hsd.k12.or.us/domain/543

Welcome Back Conference Updates

Teachers have been working all week to make calls to all advisory families. As of friday afternoon, teachers have successfully made contact with 758 HHS Families. Our Advisory teachers will continue to make second, third, and fourth attempts to reach families to conduct virtual welcome back conference calls. If you have not been able to connect with your student’s advisory teacher, we encourage you to email them directly to set up an appointment. Advisory teachers are listed in StudentVue on the student’s schedule.
