Dear Parents/Guardians, Families, and Students:
We hope that all of you and your families are staying healthy during this unprecedented time in our lives. The challenges and concerns posed by COVID-19 are changing rapidly and there are many levels of uncertainty. To help ease some anxiety and obtain accurate and up to date information regarding COVID-19 please utilize the following resources below.
We as a school community will do everything and anything that we can to support you and your family during this uncertain time. All members of our school staff can be reached via email at any point during this constantly changing situation. All staff members are required to check their email daily. Please allow at least 24 hours for a response.
Starting Monday, March 30th, all Hazleton Area School District Faculty & Staff will be providing review and enrichment materials available to all students via each teacher's website. You can find your child(ren)'s teacher website by clicking the teachers tab in the tool bar found on the top of the school webpage. After clicking on the teacher tab, you will find an alphabetical listing of all of our teachers. Click on the teachers name to be directed to the respective teacher's website. Students can follow the directions provided by the teacher to access all of the review and enrichment materials.
It is not mandatory, at this time, to complete any of the review and enrichment activities. None of the material will be graded at this time. Teachers will not be taking attendance or collecting and grading assignments. The material is to provide students an opportunity to review previous material and provide resources that can further enrich students on previously taught content.
Teachers may also be reaching out to students and parents through a variety of communication methods. This is to provide guidance and support to all of our parents/guardians and students as we navigate through the many challenges we are presented with at this time.
We ask all parents and students to be patient, cooperative, and understanding as we work together to support each other. If anyone is in need of any additional resources or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact administration. Please refer below for additional educational resources. We will get through this together if we support and encourage each other; knowing that we will come out of this stronger and be a more compassionate society. We will have a greater knowledge and understanding of what we are capable of and what we can achieve. We will get through this together!
