Mon, 08/06/2018 - 12:23pmStudents in grades 6-12 have had restricted Office 365 email and G Suite accounts that only permit sending to and receiving from other HCPSS accounts. Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, secondary students will have the ability to use their “@inst.hcpss.org” email account to send and receive email outside of HCPSS. They will also have the ability to share items (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive) from their G Suite to outside HCPSS domains, or non-HCPSS accounts. School librarians will include information and lessons about these changes during media orientation at the beginning of the school year. Students will learn how to access the email account, share and send information safely to users outside HCPSS, and maintain password security.
Mon, 08/06/2018 - 12:22pmPermission for students to drive and park vehicles on school system property is a privilege, not a right. In order to be granted this privilege, students must obtain a student parking permit each school year, which requires students and parents/guardians to annually attend a driver safety session and to pay a $15 fee for the parking permit. Students must also comply with all school rules related to driving and parking on school property in order to retain this privilege. Session dates are confirmed early in the school year and may be adjusted as necessary. Students do not need to attend a session at their home school. Please confirm all dates and times with the host school prior to attending.
