Return to Learning Plan

TIPS TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT HOPE HS:

  • Arrive at HHS early or on time and attend school every day.

  • Be aware of your progress in courses and participate in your learning.

  • Advocate for yourself: ask for help!

  • Follow school safety protocols.

SCHOOL SAFETY PROTOCOLS:

  • The CDC recommends all people wear a face mask in school!

  • Wash hands frequently.

  • Disinfect workstations.

  • Temp check (if you have a fever, you will be sent home).

  • Stay home if you feel sick. Call the HHS office to say you won’t be coming in. You can speak with your teacher about make-up learning when you return.

  • Additional mitigating strategies include daily sanitization and cleaning, hand sanitizers across campus, bathroom and hallway monitoring to reduce student contact, bathroom door foot handles, less student movement between classrooms to minimize contact, reduced class sizes, contact tracing per Maricopa County Department of Public Health Administration guidelines.

ID requirement:

  • HHS issued ID is MANDATORY at all times while on campus.

Protective Measures:

“At Hope High School we put the physical and psychological safety of all students and staff first. As such, our policy is to immediately remove any individual from our campus for participating in or instigating: violence of any kind, bullying, drug/alcohol/vape use, threatening words or behaviors, or any other behaviors that could potentially put others' physical or psychological safety at risk.

While consequences are not punitive, please note that we take the safety of all people on our campus, especially our students, very seriously.“

Mrs. O’Connell, Principal at Hope HS
