This is a reminder that you must be on time for Advisory and class every day. Teachers will begin marking students tardy if they are late for class.
James Hart Virtual Open House

Have you seen the James Hart Virtual Open House? There are links for all of the teachers and their bitmoji image. Click the box above for the link.


1) Students must have their first name and the first initial of their last name listed in order to be admitted to class.

2) Students must also have their cameras on when they enter the class. This is a safety issue due to people disrupting our classes that do not attend James Hart School.

3) Students should have their cameras on during the delivery of instruction. If there is an issue or concern, please send an email or message to the teacher.

4) Virtual backgrounds must be appropriate and should not be distracting or include pictures of people.

5) The student who is in the class should be the only person visible on the Zoom screen for class.

6) Students should not share login credentials. Sharing of login information violates other students’ and teachers’ rights to confidentiality and could allow class participation by unauthorized persons and/or lead to disruptive behaviors that detract from a productive and positive learning environment.

7) Email is a great way for students and parents to communicate with teachers.

8) If you have questions, trouble getting into Teams, or technology issues, please call the main office or submit a Parent Tech Ticket.
