Attention Student Drivers

Volunteer/Observer Vaccine Requirement

  • Effective Monday, October 25, all volunteers and chaperones who interact with students and parents/guardians who are conducting observations in which they will be in a classroom with students will be required to use the PinPoint platform to show proof of full vaccination at least five school days prior to entry into a school. https://www.hcpss.org/schools/visitation/
     
  • Students Visiting Other Schools for Field Trips: Current students from other schools will not be permitted to visit a school that is not their own during the school day for any reason, including but not limited to field trips and mentoring opportunities, unless the student provides proof of full vaccination through the PinPoint VaccineCheck platform at least five school days prior to visiting the school. In the platform, students should select their current school and the school they will be visiting on the field trip so this information can be shared with both schools.

School Supplies for Students

  • High school teachers will inform students of any needed supplies at the start of the school year in their syllabus. The number of supplies requested will be reduced to keep costs down for families and reflect those most essential for virtual learning. It may be necessary to replenish supplies during the school year as needed.  Please note, we will not be supplying agenda books for students this year.  We encourage you to purchase a planner/calendar for your student to help them keep track of assignments.
     
  • The graphing calculator is an important technology tool used in Howard County mathematics courses beginning with Algebra 1 and extending through the end of the course sequence. Although digital graphing tools are available online and will be used at various times in middle and high school math courses, students are best served by having a personal graphing calculator such as the TI-84 Plus CE (rechargeable) graphing calculator. Students who go on to take mathematics courses in college will likely be able to use the same calculator for college coursework. Note that students are permitted to use a graphing calculator on the SAT, ACT and Advanced Placement mathematics exams. Arrangements can also be made to borrow a graphing calculator from school through your child’s mathematics teacher.
