4/16 HCSD Updates
-Numbers are increasing since, Monday. We remain hopeful that we are on the downside of this
pandemic, but now is not the time to become complacent. Mitigation strategies will remain in place,
and outside capacity limits are about to be raised again.
-To our 1,500 team members and community members who have received the Johnson and
Johnson vaccine. We received information from our health department yesterday that 6 in 7 million
people have suffered issues related to blood clotting from the vaccine. If you experience lower
extremity pain or constant headaches 2-3 weeks after vaccine, you are advised to consult with your
Graduation for HCSD Update:
-All HCSD graduations will be the weekend of May 14, 2021 at your local high school. With millions of
dollars of construction slated to begin at the majority of our high schools, there was no “perfect”
date(s). We did want to provide our seniors with a memorable ceremony, and we look forward to
celebrating this milestone.
Virtual Option for ALL HCSD Students is the Virtual Program-Of-Choice:
-Any student, grades 3-12 interested in attending school virtually next year MUST apply to the HCSD
Virtual Program now. There will be no additional programs at local schools. We want our virtual
program to be highly reliable and of high quality. This is now the 37th Program-Of-Choice in your Hall
County School District.
