What's Happening

                   Hybrid to Remote Instruction
                            Update 11.18.20  

On Sunday, November 15th, Governor Whitmer announced restrictions through an order of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services restricting all in-person instruction at High Schools. The Harper Creek Board of Education approved a plan last night to shift all hybrid in-person instruction at the High School to a Remote/Virtual schedule until the end of the 1st semester, January 18th. This schedule is located under "Important Information" on this page. There are no changes for 100% virtual students.

It is the expectation that all students attend the live synchronous instruction meetings with their classes. These meetings are scheduled in 1/2 hour increments on Mondays and Tuesdays for Team H students, and Thursdays and Fridays for Team C students. It is absolutely essential that your student(s) communicate and interact with their teachers continuously throughout this remote learning time period and complete assigned work to help them achieve credit in their class(es).

The High School will also have opportunities for students to be in the building during normal school hours between 7:45 a.m. and 2:50 p.m. Students who need to connect to the internet or need a space to work may work in the building. Students should NOT expect direct in-person assistance from staff during this time - the building is simply available for them to connect to technology or have a safe work space.

Students who need higher levels of support for learning may work with staff directly by scheduling a meeting with their teachers. This may be done remotely, or even in-person, but it must be scheduled in advance.

All staff and students in the building must strictly follow all safety and health expectations including correctly wearing a mask and practice social distancing.



                     HCHS Virtual Learning Expectations 

Learning does not stop when you are not in the building!  The school day times, from 7:45 am to 2:50 pm, should still be dedicated to learning when you are not present in school. This is especially true this year as all students are spending all or part of their time with virtual learning.   

Each weekday that students are not at school, they should:

  • Check their HCHS Outlook email accounts – morning and afternoon
  • Log onto their Google and/or Schoology classrooms to check for assignments
  • Complete assigned Check
  • Respond to communications (emails, texts, classroom posts) from teachers

Additionally, students may have the opportunity on Wednesdays to:

  • Meet with their teachers (in a virtual meeting or in-person) for additional instruction
  • Join a virtual meeting for interventions, discussion or help

100% virtual students are expected to do the following each school day as well:  

  • Check their HCHS Outlook email accounts – morning and afternoon
  • Log onto their Google and/or Schoology classrooms to check for assignments
  • Check with their Michigan Virtual or Graduation Alliance Classrooms (if enrolled)
  • Attend scheduled virtual meetings for instruction
  • Join optional virtual meeting(s) for interventions, discussion or help
  • Respond to communications (emails, texts, classroom posts) from HCHS teachers

Teacher work days are from 7:45 am to 3:05 pm. Virtual assignments can be submitted at any time within assigned deadlines, but please realize teacher availability and responses should not be expected outside the scheduled work day. Please allow time for a response/feedback from the teacher during the scheduled work day or the following day. 

Teaching and learning has never been more challenging for this generation of teachers and learners.  We appreciate the efforts you are making, and will continuously assess our programming to improve and support our students, our families, and our staff.  Thank you!
