Learning Options Survey from the district earlier this week

If you have not already done this through the email that was sent out this week, please do this. If you have already completed the survey, thank you!

Please review the attached document outlining our two learning options; “2020-2021 HPS Learning Opportunities”. After reviewing the learning opportunities, we are asking you to complete the following survey for EACH of your children. If you feel you need additional information other than what is provided in this email, please attend one of the virtual town hall meetings mentioned below. Your choice of plan for next year is not due until August 6. We need this information for the District to gather numbers for each option that will guide many next step decisions regarding staffing, scheduling for students, etc.  

As a reminder, Hudsonville Public Schools will have two options to begin the school year.

1.     In-Person Instruction: This would constitute a regular school day with extra protocols put in place to keep our students and staff safe. Details of the extra protocols may be found in the Parent Guidebook linked below.

2.     Eagle Virtual – Online Instruction: This would be for families of students who cannot return or don’t feel safe to be in a classroom or public setting. These students will remain in their online classroom for the trimester (high school) or semester (elementary and middle school). These students would receive a curriculum that mirrors HPS curriculum. If you choose Eagle Virtual instruction in the survey, you will be notified of the next steps for enrollment prior to the start of the school year.

A detailed description of our Return to School plan is outlined in the Parent Guidebook (link here).

Next week we will be hosting four town hall meetings regarding our return to school plan. Each meeting is limited to 500 participants and will be recorded if the number of participants exceeds that number. Participants will have the opportunity to enter questions or comments in a chat box. We will do our best to answer as many questions as possible during the allotted time. These meetings will be virtual and take place at the following dates/times:

Elementary focus (Alward, Bauer, Georgetown, Park)
Tuesday, August 4, from 6:00PM to 7:00PM

Middle School focus
Tuesday, August 4, from 7:30PM to 8:30PM

High School focus
Wednesday, August 5, from 6:00PM to 7:00PM

Elementary focus (Forest Grove, Jamestown Lower, Jamestown Upper, South)
Wednesday, August 5, from 7:30PM to 8:30PM

Please see our website for the links to each meeting.

Once again, thank you for your support, and please remember to fill out the return to school survey for each child.

Sincerely,

Dr. VanderJagt
Superintendent
