Principals Message: Friday Remote Learning
Parents/Guardians and Students,
On November 5th HHS will have a remote learning day. That Friday is a B day so students will receive instructions from their teachers on work to be done at home for B day classes. This is one of 6 remote learning days that will be announced. Please see the details below to work with teachers and how the work should be structured.
- We will provide a two-hour window of support for student learning. Our schoolwide time will be from 8:30-10:30am. Teachers will create a zoom link and provide that information to parents and students through Canvas or other skyward emails.
- Teachers will provide work for remote Fridays that can be done at home without much direction from teachers. The goal is to not cause undue stress on families.
- Teachers need to be at school from 7-3.
- A and B days will follow the current Canyons School District Calendar. This means if a remote Friday falls on an A day, students will work through their A day classes only and vice versa for B day remote learning days. This will allow us to stay on normal A/B day scheduling.
Lifetouch Pictures makeup day is on November 3rd (7:00 AM to 1:00 PM) for any new students and others who did not get pictures taken this year. Pictures are used for the Hillcrest yearbook and school IDs. IDs will be given to students after the picture is taken. School IDs are necessary for participation in many of the school’s activities. The Lifetouch picture booth will be on the 3rd floor collaborative space. If students need to do a RETAKE, please deliver the original purchased picture packet to Lifetouch representatives in order to do a RETAKE.
