Welcome Back, Wildcats!
Hello, friends! Welcome back to school! We are so excited and pleased to warmly welcome back all of our students, faculty, staff, and community members after nearly six months away from campus. Here at school, we are eager to get started.
Over the past three months, culminating with the opening of school on Thursday, September 10, a host of district and community-based stakeholders engaged in a comprehensive school reopening planning process called the Wildcat Reset. Comprehensive in concept, scope, and design, the Wildcat Reset plan is written to provide a detailed school-reopening roadmap process designed to ensure highly controlled, nurturing, and safe educational environment, whereby maximum teaching and learning can occur in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Major topical areas covered in the plan include Health, Safety and Welfare; Continuity of Instruction; and Operations and Support. All aspects of the Wildcat Reset plan, including an exhaustive list of protocols and procedures, are easily accessible and widely available to the public on the HCSD website, https://www.hancock.stier.org
Ensuring your child’s safety is and always has been our top priority. To this end, we are pleased to enthusiastically partner with all of our community stakeholders for the common purposes of providing the safest and best possible educational opportunities for our students. Practically speaking, wearing of approved face coverings, social distancing (separation of no less than 6 feet between people), and rigorous handwashing with warm water formed our foundational infection-control measures.
In closing, I would like to extend my warmest and most sincere wishes to all for a productive and enlightening 2020-2021 school year. Together, we can achieve anything! Please feel free to contact us at school if you have questions or concerns.
