Laptop Updates

June 30, 2020
Hungary Creek families,

 

To improve engagement and learning with peers and teachers in the 20/21 school year, Henrico County Public Schools will be activating the cameras on secondary laptops for middle and high school students.  To activate the camera, the laptop needs to be serviced at the student’s home school.  The total time to perform the work is about 5-10 minutes.

 

At each secondary school beginning Tuesday, June 30th, the technical support staff will be available to re-configure secondary laptops for middle and high school students in preparation for the 20/21 school year.

 

When:    Monday through Thursday — excluding July 2nd which is a school closure date

Time:      8:30 through 12 and 12:30 through 4:30

 

Each location will practice safety precautions for COVID-19.  The technical support staff will be wearing masks and practicing additional safety precautions.  Each person that arrives to have their HCPS laptop serviced are requested to wear a mask and to practice social distancing.  Each line will have tape on the floor about 8 feet apart to help with social distancing.

 

Only one individual (parent, student, or guardian) should enter the school to receive service.  The only thing that is needed to be brought in to complete the work is the laptop to be reconfigured (no charger, no username/password).

 

The location at the school to go to for the activation of the laptop camera is the Front door, main foyer in front of the library. This support at each school to reconfigure secondary student laptop cameras will continue into the month of August up until the start of school.

 

Thank you,

Robbi Moose

 

Update from The Creek: 6/18/2020

June 18, 2020
Cougars,

Welcome to Summer!!!  I just wanted to say Thank You for a wonderful year and all of your support during these unprecedented times.  I will send out messages periodically over the summer to update you on various items such as yearbook distribution, 8th-grade T-Shirt distribution, etc.

Please see the information below highlighting laptop information, changes to the tech hubs, and meal distribution over the summer:

All HCMS students will keep their computers over the summer so that you may take part in Season 3 of EdFlix (July 13 – August 6).  If you are moving or are planning to withdraw from HCPS, please take your computer and charger to one of the hubs to turn these items in.

 

The mobile tech hubs that help HCPS students and families with laptop repairs and internet access will also move to summer hours beginning June 15. The hubs will be open at the same four sites, but with reduced hours and days.

Summer mobile technology hubs (beginning June 15)

Hours: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 8:30-10:30 a.m.

In an effort to increase efficiency and anticipate the needs of families, the grab-and-go service will shift some locations and reduce the number of sites from 15 to 14. The service will operate during the summer from Monday through Thursday, in accordance with HCPS’ traditional summer schedule.

In addition to the daily breakfasts and lunches, on Thursdays, students, parents and guardians can also pick up meals for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Distribution is on a first-come, first-served basis. Food distribution is open to all students, regardless of what school they attend, as well as others age 18 and under.

For more information about summer nutrition, contact Dana K. Whitney, director of HCPS’ Department of Nutrition Services, at 804-226-5555.

Middle School students currently enrolled in a high-school credit-bearing course (click here to see list of courses) will engage in required* new learning experiences that will include essential missing content that would have been taught after March 13, 2020. This content will not be graded, however, there will be a denotation on the transcript that will be removed upon completion of the missing content/new learning modules. *Students who are unable to complete the modules during this window will have another opportunity in the 2020-21 school year.

HCMS Faculty Read Book “Knock Out” for Students

May 6, 2020

Hello, Cougars! The faculty of HCMS have put together a little treat for you. With permission from Chronicle Books, we have recorded an audiobook version of Knockout by K.A. Holt! Click on the link below to listen.

From the publisher, Chronicle Books: Levi just wants to be treated like a typical kid. As a baby, he had a serious disease that caused him respiratory issues. He’s fine now, but his mom and overprotective brother still think of him as damaged, and his schoolmates see him as the same class clown he’s always been. He feels stuck. So when his dad—divorced from his mom—suggests he take up boxing, he falls in love with the sport. And when he finds out about a school with a killer boxing team and a free-study curriculum, it feels like he’s found a ticket to a new Levi. But how can he tell his mom about boxing? And how can he convince his family to set him free?
