HES HERO 1.27.21

Important Dates:

February 3 – Asynchronous Day – students must log in





Inclement Weather Procedures:

During the 2020-2021 school year, an asynchronous learning day will be used when the weather prevents WCPSS from having in-person classes.  No make-up day will be required. Schools will take into consideration that winter weather and snow days are a time-honored celebration in our community and assign work accordingly. While there will be requirements for work, families should expect to also have time to celebrate their own traditions. Families will continue to receive an email and text message when the school day is modified due to inclement weather. When possible, the announcement will be made the day before so families can plan.


What this means for our HES families is that teachers will post assignments that align with what is being taught but will also allow kids (and parents) plenty of opportunity to play in the snow. These assignments will be dropped into the Google classrooms by 8: 30 a.m.


Meal Benefits Applications:

Parents, please consider applying for meal benefits by Feb 26. For every student that turns in the free and reduced lunch application and qualifies, the school receives federal funds that benefit the student and teachers at the school. These funds provide additional teachers and staff for the school which means more services for students, especially students that are struggling in reading or math. These funds also are used for materials and supplies for students and teachers. These are valuable resources that teachers can use to improve student achievement.  

Yes, meals will still be free for all students through June 2021 but we still need you to complete a meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for this extra funding next year. Information about applying for Meal Benefits for the 2020-21 school year can be found at . Help our school continue to receive this funding by completing an application online at Paper applications can be requested by calling 919-588-3535.
