Hello Hampshire HS,

Our first full week of going 100% remote is it going??? Students and parents, please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers if you need additional support. Teachers will be in their classrooms all week available to assist you. Custodians will be doing their weekly deep cleaning in preparation of your return. Remember, first nine weeks ends this week!

As we prepare to begin a new nine weeks, it is important for us to take the time to celebrate all the great things taking place around us each day at HHS. Our school division continues to put kids first regardless of the obstacles they face. Our faculty and staff goes above and beyond during this blended learning environment. Our students get better each week doing the best they can in person and remotely. And, our families are reaching out asking for additional support when their child is struggling. Yes, we certainly have more work to do ahead of us and if we continue to work together, our students will excel in and out of the classroom!

Tech Tips from Mr. Feazell (Communication & Attendance):

Remote Communication and Attendance:

This week with everyone on Remote Learning in the county everyone needs to be aware of the attendance rules and how it will work. Attendance is still kept through the week, however instead of it being taken daily, it is based on your communication through the whole week.

Students MUST communicate with all teachers at least once before Thursday at midnight in order to not be marked absent. What is communication with your teachers?

Communication is: Doing any of these will result in you being present for the week. Turning in assignments Emailing a teacher Joining a TEAMS call (Internet or On Phone) Responding to a class discussion Having a phone conversation with your teacher

Communication is NOT:

Doing any of these will

result in your being marked

absent all week. Parents emailing a teacher Not submitting any assignments Logging on to Schoology, but not doing any work Ignoring your teachers’ attempts to communicate with you

Make sure you are doing at least one of the items required to communicate with your teachers this week in order to avoid being marked absent all week. You must also communicate with all four of your teachers, not just one of them.
