• Notification to Parents of Elementary Level Students Requesting Transfers from the Virtual School Program to the Phase-in (Hybrid) Model or from the Phase-in Model to the Virtual School Program

     

    More than 2300 requests for transfers into or out of the Virtual School Program were received by the deadline of October 19. Our goal is to accommodate as many of your requests as possible with the least amount of disruption to learning. As has been stated on numerous occasions, however, staffing and spacing must be considered in making moves of this magnitude.

     

    Additionally, soon as we have determined which transfers can be accommodated based on spacing and staffing, all affected students must be moved within PowerSchool. Finally, coordination with the Offices of Transportation and Nutrition Services must be completed to ensure transportation routes and meal prep/meal pickup plans are accurate. All of this behind-the-scenes work takes time.

     

    Parents will be notified on or before November 4 as to whether their request for transfer has been approved.

    Until the transfer process has been completed, parents who requested transfers should note the following:

     

    1.    If your child is currently in the Virtual School Program and you requested a transfer to the Phase-in (Hybrid) Model, your child will continue to be served in his/her Virtual School Program classes until further notification. Please have him/her log in for classes in Microsoft Teams, as usual.

     

    2.    If your child is an elementary level student in grades PreK-2 in the Phase-in Model and you requested a transfer to the Virtual School Program, your child’s teacher will provide asynchronous assignments for your child beginning Monday, October 26. Simply stated, the teacher will provide activities that your child can do independently or with little assistance. Some of this work will be a review of what has been learned during first quarter.

     

    3.    If your child is an elementary level student in grades 3-5 in the Phase-in Model and you requested a transfer to the Virtual School Program, your child’s teacher will provide asynchronous assignments for your child on November 5-6. Simply stated, the teacher will provide activities that your child can do independently or with little assistance. Some of this work will be a review of what has been learned during first quarter.

     

    If you have questions, please contact your child’s principal.

     A Message from the Principal

    Dear Hopkins Elementary Stakeholders:Audrey Garner

    I am truly honored to be a part of the  Hopkins Elementary Family.  We are in for a fantastic year! I am a lifelong learner and proud product of Richland School District One. My post graduate work includes earning my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Clemson University and my Master of Education in Administration and Supervision from Southern Wesleyan University. 

    As the principal of Hopkins Elementary, it is my mission to engage, educate, and empower each and every stakeholder of our school community into places of continual excellence as collaborative partners in education. 

    I truly believe that there are great things happening at Hopkins Elementary and, moreover, this school has an amazing amount of potential to far exceed expectations to produce global learners who will one day be global leaders. 

    We will continue with AVID Elementary (Advancement via Individual Determination) which encourages students to have a “growth mindset” by emphasizing the principle that “progress is determined by personal effort.”  Our third through fifth grade teachers will continue with the implementation of AVID strategies in their classrooms, teaching the students specific skills/ strategies that will help them achieve their goals. Additionally, we will continue to work to make learning visible in every classroom by ensuring that all students know what they learning and why they are learning the material.  These strategies will help students to be successful not only in school, but in life…from elementary school...through college and beyond!

    Throughout the year, I encourage you to stay connected by taking a look at our events calendar, parent information and school resources on our school's website.


    Here to serve,

    Audrey Garner
