High School Credit Exam Info

May 7, 2021

Good Afternoon Cougars,

This communication is to inform you about changes to end-of-year final exams for the 2020-2021 school year.  Middle school students taking high school credit courses will use an alternative approach to the end-of-year/final course assessment to improve their grades. Students who opt to use the alternative approach will do so beginning the week of June 6th. Information about the specific alternative approach options will come directly from your child’s teacher in the coming weeks.  In addition, students who have outstanding work are encouraged to continue to work with teachers to submit missing assignments.

The decision to make this change was due to the pandemic taking a significant toll on our students and families, creating increased feelings of stress and anxiety.

Should you have any questions regarding this alternative approach, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher.
 

Sincerely,

Robbi Moose

More information about the workshops, as well as instructions and links for participating, are at the Bridge Builders Academy webpage at https://henricoschools.us/bridgebuildersacademy.

Parent Survey Reminder – Please Fill Out By April 2

April 1, 2021

Dear families,

Each year, Henrico County Public Schools requests input from families, staff and students regarding their experiences in their school and within the school division as a whole. This is done through a survey. This information is very important to us in identifying what we are doing well and what needs improvement or change here at the school and at the division level.

The survey is open from now until April 2, and you can access the survey directly from the HCPS website by clicking on the survey link below:

https://henricoschools.us/surveys/

The parent / guardian survey is available online in English and Spanish with an optional audio feature that reads the questions aloud for clarity. The survey is also available in additional languages in printed form. Please contact us here at the school if you need a printed survey.

Additional information about the survey is available on the HCPS website: HCPS Survey Information.

When you complete the survey online, you can choose to enter an optional drawing for prizes. In addition, the school with the highest participation rate in each magisterial district will receive funding for staff development activities, sponsored by the Henrico Education Foundation. We would love to be the recipient of those extra funds!

Most of all, your feedback is very important to us. We would like to hear from every one of our families, as each of you have a unique perspective and your own ideas to share.

Thank you in advance for completing the survey and for your continued support.
