Dear Horizon Parents,
We have exciting news! Hilliard Horizon students do not have to return their iPads until July 27, 2020!
Your child that attends Horizon can keep their iPad until July 27th!
JW Reason, Brown Elementary, and Hilliard Horizon have the honor of running our enrichment and academic programs online this summer. Horizon will be running Power Hour and New Horizons classes all summer. All programming can be found on your child’s Canvas dashboard.
Please continue to check your child’s Canvas course for enrichment activities over the summer. Our program begins June 1st and will end on July 24th. We will collect iPads on Monday, July 27, at your child’s home elementary school.Your child does not need to wipe their iPad’s data until they are turned in. Our iPad collection times will run from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Monday, July, 27th.
Hilliard Horizon will be participating in item pick up on Tuesday, May 26th. From 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, our teaching staff will be at the school ready to hand you items that the students left at school. We are also collecting media center books and any book sent home by our teachers. It is so important that we get those books back as we want to have the books ready for check out for our students in August.
Please follow these assigned times to keep the cars in the drop off line moving smoothly and social distancing as the Department of Health has requested. Our pick up/ drop off will be out back. The process will run similar to our student drop off and pick up. You will enter the back road on Renner and drive around the school to the playground where we will have your items ready for you.
