Family and Student Handbook - Wednesday, AUGUST 5th

Below you will find links to the Family and Student Handbook to support you with starting the 2020/2021 school year online. This handbook is meant to be a guide to help families with information they will need in the days leading up to and through the first weeks of school. 

The handbook includes information on topics such as accessing classes online, suggestions for the home environment, and addresses many of the questions you may have about distance learning, including the use of technology.

Please be aware that Parent and Student PINs will be distributed during our upcoming drive-thru Orientation. These will enable parents to register for the Parent Portal, and for students to access their MyMail accounts, and their classes.

Our hope is that this Family and Student Handbook will serve as an additional tool to help make the start of this school year a success. Please continue to monitor your email, our website, and Schoology for the latest information.

• Charter Communications will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription and at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
 
• At Hale, we have been preparing for a possible school closure. Each teacher has developed a curriculum based on the use of a variety of resources including Schoology, school textbooks, paper printouts, and other online resources. Your child should know the learning expectations for each class, and work to meet those expectations during their time out of school. You can support your child by developing a regimen to follow, that works for your family, so that they make consistent progress during their absence from school.
