K-5 Students

  • HCSD has implemented a 1:1 initiative for all elementary students so that every student will be assigned a district-provided iPad (K-2) or a Chromebook (3-5).  Devices will be distributed to students on the first day of in-person instruction.  The device and the charger should remain at home when students are at home for remote learning and brought to school when students are required to report.  Students should keep their chargers at home at all times.  Families in need of internet can be provided a district Internet Hotspot.

  • Students will be expected to use their own district-provided devices when at school.  During the 2020-2021 school year, students will not be allowed to share devices.  Lab computers will not be available.

  • Software has been researched and purchased for teaching and learning to accommodate any of the learning models.  For K-5 students, teachers will use SeeSaw and Google Classroom and interact with students through Google Meet and Zoom.  

6-12 Students 

  • LMK and HHS are BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) schools.  All students are expected to have a laptop/chromebook/tablet that can be used every day when at home or in school.  Students are expected to bring their device to and from school each day.  Any student in need of a device can be provided a device through their school library.  Families in need of internet can be provided a district Internet Hotspot.
