Parent Corner

The HCPS Parent Corner is a website created for families to get help with using the programs we have in Hopewell, Chromebook basics, and student view tutorials for accessing resources like Flocabulary, Newslea, all the Google Apps and more. Where possible, we have included information in English and Spanish to try to meet the needs of all of our families. This will be posted on our division website and in the student bookmarks folders. We would also welcome you linking the site in your personal Google sites, if you've made one, and however else you want to share it.
We hope that both of these resources will be helpful to you and your students. These will also be updated regularly as new features are made available within the programs we use.
Visit our new HCPS Parent Corner for all of the resources and links you need for a successful virtual experience. We are in this together! #hopewellmagic.
