Hello DLES Families,

We hope all our students, families and staff are having a relaxing and fun summer. The time is flying by as we have just about 5 weeks left of summer. Here are some ways to stay connected throughout these last few weeks. 


Stay Connected this Summer

Here are some ways to stay connected during the summer, including enrichment activities, reading lists and programs, the free summer meal program and more.


Register Online for Pre-K, Kindergarten and First Grade

Parents/guardians of new incoming students, including those entering kindergarten in the 2020-2021 school year, should begin the enrollment process online and upload the required documents. Find more information about kindergarten registration.


Will students be provided with devices for the 2020-2021 school year?

In addition to Chromebooks HCPSS already owns, the Board of Education approved the purchase of additional devices to help remove technology barriers and advance equitable student learning outcomes. As such, HCPSS will provide 1:1 devices for elementary and middle school students, and, until additional devices are procured, will provide devices upon request to high school students who do not have access to personal devices.

Every student entering grades pre-kindergarten through 8 will be provided with a Chromebook; parents/guardians do not need to do anything to request this device. Beginning in mid-August, parents/guardians of students entering high school may request a device. All device distribution will occur in late August. Details will be communicated as soon as they are available.


Any student who borrowed a Chromebook for spring or summer learning may continue to use that device during the 2020-2021 school year.


Stay well,

Mrs. Balter and Mrs. Madden
