First Day of School 2020-21

Dear Red Hill Families,
It’s finally here! Tomorrow is the first day of the 2020-21 school year. Our teachers have worked hard to plan and prepare to welcome your children to their virtual classrooms. We are anxious and excited to begin.

While students will be interacting remotely with the teachers and their classmates, it is essential to remember that they are in school. School rules and school division policies apply while in Zoom meetings and using school and division resources such as laptops, iPads, Google accounts, and licensed software such as Seesaw. Please review both the Red Hill Handbook and the Stage 2 addendum for virtual learning.

While I had hoped to post a recording of our virtual Open House, I have been unsuccessful in getting the video sound to record. As an alternative, I am sharing the slide deck.

If you are experiencing technical difficulties with an ACPS device or the applications on the device:
ACPS students and families have multiple options for receiving technical support:
1. Call the school and report the problem. We will communicate the issue to a technician who will follow up to assist you.
2. Use the online Student Technology Support Form to submit a service ticket.
3. Call the ACPS Service Desk at 434-975-9444, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 AM to 5 PM.

While most of you have picked up devices and learning kits, we have school items for some families who haven’t had a chance yet. Please stop by between 7:30 AM and 4 PM to pick up.

Lastly, art classes will not begin this week. Our new art teacher, Katie Ford, is eager to get started. She should complete the hiring process this week. Teachers will add her Zoom link to the Essentials schedule once her classes are available.

For weekly communication from the school and the PTO, subscribe to the Moosletter by emailing Put the word subscribe in the subject line.

Take care,
Nancy McCullen, Principal
