Students who do not have an HCPSS-issued Chromebook may pick one up from the front office any work day between 8am - 2pm. Chromebooks will also be issued during the first weeks of school.
Students are expected to bring their devices and chargers to school every day. Students may not use them in every class, every day; however, we will not have computer lab carts in classrooms so it's important that students have theirs.
Charges will now be assessed for HCPSS-issued Chromebooks that are lost/stolen or damaged while in a student's care and/or as the result of neglect on the part of the student. Students who currently receive Free and Reduced Meal services (FARMs) will be charged a reduced amount. Students and parents/guardians can view the full list of costs HERE.
Families are asked to review the HCPSS Student Mobile Technology Duties and Obligations notice and remind students of the expectations around proper care.
Families should review the devices assigned to their student(s) in HCPSS Connect Synergy and use the form to verify the devices listed for their family are assigned correctly. HCPSS staff will review when families report incorrect assignments and will reach out to families as needed.
Should an HCPSS Chromebook become damaged, students/parents should bring the damaged device to their student’s school or an HCPSS Technology Support Center.
The staff member taking the report will document the incident. After which, staff will review the report and device to assess charges, as appropriate.
Students must wear:
Certain body parts must be covered for all students. Clothes must be worn in a way such that the chest, midriff, pelvic/groin area, and buttocks are covered with opaque (non-see through) material.
Students are not permitted to wear attire, including wearable technology that is disruptive to the school environment, that promotes illegal or harmful activities, or that could endanger the health or safety of that student or others during school hours and school-related activities. Attire that depicts profanity, hate speech, obscenity, use of weapons, sexually suggestive messages, gang affiliation, violence, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, and or may damage school property are not permitted at any time. (Policy 9210)
During lunch shifts, students should report to the cafeteria and are not permitted to leave school grounds or be in an alternate location (hallways, parking lot, media center, etc.) without prior permission from a staff member. Lunch can be eaten in the cafeteria and outside the front of the building. Lunch may not be eaten in the hallways, media center, classrooms, parking lot or cars.
Lunch is provided daily through our Cafeteria. Students may bring in a lunch when they arrive in the morning and use the microwaves during lunch to heat up anything that they bring.
Students may not leave campus to purchase lunch at anytime during the school day. Leaving school grounds will result in disciplinary action.
Students are not permitted to order food to be delivered during the school day. This includes but is not limited to: using UberEats, GrubHub, Door Dash or any other food delivery service. School deliveries from outside unknown resources are considered a Student Safety Risk and Violation/School Disruption (Policy 1040). Food ordered and delivered to the building will be confiscated and can be picked up in the front office after school.
We ask that parents have students bring any lunch from home with them in the morning when they arrive to school. If a parent needs to bring their students lunch to school they must drop it off in the front office. The student can pick it up during their assigned lunch shift and eat it in the cafeteria or pick it up after school.
All Students are expected to be in their seats, ready to work, when the bell rings. Students will not receive credit for any work missed due to unexcused absence from class or unexcused lateness to class.
Thank you in advance for following our rules. These rules have been designed to keep students safe and prepare them for success in the classroom.
