Good Afternoon HCPS Families:


The purpose of this call is to inform you of the school board’s decisions last night to

delay the start of school to September 8, 2020 and to begin in a fully virtual format for

the first nine weeks.


Our hope until this week had been to offer choice between a fully virtual model and 2

days per week of face to face instruction. Unfortunately, due to a number of factors,

offering in person instruction has become unrealistic at this time.


We have been clear throughout this process that our highest priority and greatest

responsibility will always be the safety of our students and our staff. We will continue to

monitor data and guidance so that we can safely get our students and staff back to

school as soon as possible.


We understand that this may raise concerns with both child care and supporting our

students and families with on-line learning. Please know we are working on some

options that we plan to share with you in the very near future.


Please feel free to access our Facebook Live Panel where we discussed our plan in more detail. We will continue to offer these sessions routinely to provide updated information. You can also view the School Re-Opening Powerpoint presented to the School Board.


Thank you,

Dr. Melody Hackney

HCPS Superintendent
