From the Desk of Principal HornbeckApril 6, 2021
Welcome back from Spring Break! Whether online or in-person, our great staff is excited to get back to teaching your awesome children. I’m very proud to say that all HHA teachers will provide in-person instruction moving forward. As you now know, grades PreK – 5 are in-person April 12th and grades 6-8 reopen April 19th. Last month, the first two weeks of in-person instruction in more than a year went very well – great turnout, attendance, patient parents, thrilled teachers and happy students. While we have the technology in place to effectively deliver hybrid lessons, I would like to apologize for the obsolete switches still in use by City Schools that made for connectivity headaches for those students working remotely. HHA is ordering enough hotspots for backup at school to fix the problem. A huge thank you to the K – 2 teachers for being our in-person pioneers . We learned so much from their experience, which will make the return of other grades easier. From check-in to working in a hybrid setting to dismissal, I can’t thank teachers, assistant teachers and parents enough for being so incredibly helpful and flexible. Please know that we are offering the safest possible in-person school experience including individual screening, masking, social distancing, HEPA filters and robust cleaning protocols. Teachers are vaccinated, and we provide authentic KN95 masks for all staff. Not only is school as safe as possible, but thanks to our talented teachers the quality of the in-person programming, condensed as it is to just a few hours each day, continues to be rigorous and engaging. I could not be more proud of our leadership team, especially Assistant Principals Bailey and Paz, Academic Coaches Johnson, Trainer and Lucas, Mr. Lee and Ms. Chris for all the prep they did to get us here. We’ve come a long way, and we have so far to go. I love being on this journey with you wonderful people!
