Summer Innovation Camp:

The VCU Center for Innovation in STEM Education, CodeVA, CodeRVA are proud to offer a free online summer innovation camp for students interested in learning more about computer science (CS) through solving team-based challenges. They are hoping to have teams of 3-5 students apply from middle and high schools located in our partner divisions (which includes HCPS).  We still have space for approximately 7 more teams to join.   They anticipate slots filling quickly, so please sign up today if you have a team that would like to participate.

Important Yearbook Updates:

Make-up pictures will be on Monday 4/26 for virtual and in-person learners.

Yearbooks are ONLY ON SALE UNTIL THE END OF APRIL- Buy yours now! yearbookordercenter.com16872

Send spring break pictures to HCMSYRBK@GMAIL.COM to be featured on the yearbook page.


From the Attendance Office – Information/Reminders:

Students who chose in-person learning will only be approved for virtual instruction if the absence is due to COVID-related quarantine and illnesses (student, family, class, etc.). Students will not be able to move freely between in-person and virtual learning or use virtual learning if they are on vacation, etc.


What if an InPerson student is out and logs on to virtual learning are they marked present??  Or do they have to complete the warm-up to be counted present?? A F2F student cannot log in virtually to be counted present, unless they are quarantined by HCPS or a doctor, or it’s a special circumstance approved by an Admin. Those are the only exceptions!


Have a great weekend!!!
