Hello Bulls,

Welcome to the second 9-week grading period! As we move forward, I want to ensure you are aware of two changes. First, please be aware that this quarter our teachers will deduct late points (5 points per day) for work that is not completed on time. It is important for our students develop personal responsibility for the work that is due. That said, our teachers are ready to assist our students in class and during office hours (before and after school)! The second change to be aware of is that students in the building will have different due dates for work then HVA students. HVA students will continue with Sunday due dates while Traditional students will have assignments due in class and throughout the week.

Speaking of HVA students, the enrollment window for HVA for the second semester opens on October 26 – Nov 18, 2020. Any student that wants to attend, even if they were HVA for the first semester, must register within the window. If you would like to unenroll as an HVA student, simply do not enroll for the second semester and your child will automatically be switched to a traditional student.

I cannot thank you enough for your continued support. I count my blessings daily; Hampton Cove is an incredible place to be.
