Dear Highland Prep Families:
Today Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman announced the closure of schools through the end of this school year. You can view Governor Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman’s open letter to Arizona families, educators, school leaders and education community members here. Given this update, Highland Prep will continue to offer our online program for the remainder of the school year.
HP’s first week of instruction finished strong and our second week of this new format is even stronger with the addition of four designated class periods per day. Each shortened class period was designed to ‘protect time’ so that teachers can communicate specifically with each of their class periods. During this block of time teachers can also conference one-on-one with students, conference with groups, and classes as a whole. Additionally, teachers can answer questions, provide instruction, remediation and enrichment. The format for each class will be unique to each course and each teacher. Some courses will rely more heavily on Zoom than others.
Please remember that Highland Prep will continue to provide free breakfast and lunch to all children 18 and under. Children do not have to attend Highland Prep in order to receive a free meal. This is a grab-and-go style pick up where each child can receive a sack lunch for the current day and breakfast for the following day. Meals will be available for pick up between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. Monday through Friday at the back patio.
We understand the stress and anxiety surrounding the extension of school closures. We will continue to support our community in any way that we can. Thank you for your understanding, patience and support as we continue to navigate this unprecedented time together. Please continue to check HP’s website: https://highlandprepaz.com/covid-19/ as well as HP’s App, and social media for ongoing information.
Jack Bagley, M.Ed.
