HES HERO 1.15.21

Important Dates:

January 25 – All Students Return for Remote Instruction

January 27 – Material Distribution Day 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

February 3 – Asynchronous Day – students must log in


All Students Engage in Remote Learning:

Last night the WCPSS BOE approved Superintendent Moore’s recommendation for all students to remain in remote learning until mid- February. This decision was based on the increase in COVID cases of all age levels within our community. While cases have not been transferred at school many students and staff had to quarantine impacting the overall effectiveness of school operations.


All HES students will receive instruction remotely beginning January 25, 2021 at 8:25 a.m. Instruction will end at 2:45 pm each day.  Lunch will be from 11:15-12:45 daily.  Students that indicated a change (coming out or going into VA) prior to the holiday will join the new class.


Help your student have a strong second semester:

  • Have a designated space in your home for your student to work each day
  • Create a box, bag, crate, etc for your student to keep all supplies – pencil/pen, whiteboard, workbooks, math manipulatives, etc
  • Have student log on each day by 8:20 a.m.
  • Encourage your child to have their camera on during instruction so the teacher can see their level of engagement
  • Check google classroom daily to ensure your child is submitting all work


Reminder: Food Distribution Sites are Open:

Through June 30, 2021, all children age 18 and under may receive breakfast and lunch at no cost via Curbside and Big Bus Food Truck Pop-up locations. Meals are also free to all Wake County students when they are at school for in-person instruction. Meals will not be available on holidays designated on the student’s calendar.

Track Change:

Operating under the pretense that we will return to a multi-track year round calendar for the 21-22 school year all students will return to their previously assigned tracks. If you wish to request a track change for the 21-22 school year please email Anna Blackmer ( by Friday February 26 indicting your student/s name, current track and desired track.
