Principals Message: Friday Virtual Learning Day

Parents/Guardians and Students,

On April 22nd (Friday) 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 the 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 8:30-10:30 am.  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.
