Good afternoon HHS Families! We wanted to provide an update/clarification of our plans for the next two weeks. For this week (week of 11/16/2020), we are proceeding as normal with our hybrid learning schedule. There are NO changes at this time. We look forward to seeing students in person tomorrow for 1st, 2nd, Advisory, and 5th hours. For the following week (week of 11/23/2020), Herrin CUSD #4 will be using two Remote Learning Planning Days for our faculty. For our students, that means that there will be no in-person learning, new assignments assigned, or attendance taken on Monday, 11/23 and Tuesday, 11/24. These plans are highly dependent upon the health of our faculty, staff, and students. We will be in touch if our schedule must change. Please stay safe.
Good morning HHS families! This is a follow-up to Dr. Ryker's message yesterday regarding the possibility that Herrin schools may transition to remote learning for ALL students. First, if any HHS student remains in need of a Chromebook or home internet access, please see Mr. Mason this afternoon from 1:00-2:00 PM or next week. Also, we expect to run our daily schedule Mon-Thurs 8:20-12:15 via Google Meets. For all learners, 1st, 2nd, Adv, & 5th Hours will meet live M/W, and 3rd, 4th, 6th, & 7th hours will meet live Tue/Th. Teachers will post links in their Google Classrooms with instructions on how to access their individual Google Meet. Friday's schedule will remain as-is. We appreciate everyone's understanding during these crazy times. Please stay safe, and expect more frequent communication from us as additional information becomes available.
