Update from The Creek: 6/18/2020


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.

Summer locations:

·         Deep Run High School, 4801 Twin Hickory Road, Glen Allen, Va., 23059

·         Douglas Freeman High School, 8701 Three Chopt Road, Henrico, Va., 23229

·         Hermitage High School, 8301 Hungary Spring Road, Henrico, Va., 23228

·         Highland Springs High School, 15 S. Oak Ave., Highland Springs, Va., 23075



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.

Many students depend on school meals as a crucial part of daily nutrition. Since launching the distribution service in March to address family nutrition needs during the closure, HCPS’ School Nutrition Services Department has packaged and distributed around 400,000 breakfasts and lunches. For more information about summer nutrition, contact Dana K. Whitney, director of HCPS’ Department of Nutrition Services, at 804-226-5555.
