It’s Principal Dorsey here with the Sunday Scoop.

Happy New Year! I hope you all are doing well and remaining safe and healthy. I have some important updates to share with you.

Pre-K-12 Students to Continue in Remote Instruction Until Mid-February

The Board of Education voted on Thursday, January 14 for all students in grades Pre-K-12 to remain in remote instruction through mid-February. Board members made this decision based on concerns over the increasing percentage of positive COVID 19 cases, the level of community spread in our county and staffing concerns.

Hodge students return from track out for our first day on Monday, January 25. Please make sure your child is logged on to Google Classroom for live instruction. Watching the brief instructional videos is good along with completing assignments, there is nothing better than being in live instruction. This allows your child to participate in discussion, ask questions and get immediate feedback.

Materials Distribution

There are materials that students need to begin second semester. We will hold a family materials distribution on Thursday, January 21  anytime between 11:00am-5:30pm and Friday, January 22 anytime between 10:00am-2:00pm. Please drive through the bus loop to pick up materials in your car.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

We will hold parent/teacher conferences this week on Thursday and Friday. Please be sure you have scheduled your virtual or phone conference with your child’s teacher to get updated on your child’s progress. Thursday conferences are available between 11:00-6:00 and Friday between 8:00-3:00. It is not too late to schedule your conference. Reach out to your child’s teacher to schedule a conference.

Movie Night

The Hodge Road Elementary PTA is hosting a movie night on Friday, January 22. A link will be shared for you to join us on Friday. We will be using Netflix and Amazon Prime platforms. We will have several movies to choose from. Movies will be announced Monday, January 18th. In order to participate in the movie night you will have to be a subscriber to either Netflix or Amazon Prime. More details will come when we announce our movie choices and how to join the fun!

If you want to review the information shared in today’s Sunday Scoop, please see the email sent through School Messenger. If you are not receiving the emails, please share your email address with your child’s teacher and let them know it needs to be shared with our data manager, Mrs. Watts.

Make it a great week! Let's continue to be Hodge Road Strong!
