REMOTE PARENT LETTERNovember 13, 2020Green Hill High School Families,Effective November 17, 2020, Green Hill High School will transition to REMOTE LEARNING from 11/17/2020 - 11/20/2020 with the intention for students to return in-person Hybrid the week of 11/30/2020. Just to be clear, school will be open on Friday, November 13th for a full day. This school closure does not affect any Mt. Juliet Middle School students attending school at GHHS. The reason for this change in learning is due to an increasing number of students and staff affected by COVID-19, and out of the extreme caution for keeping our school community healthy.Food Service will be available using our remote learning protocols. Families needing food service during this remote learning time should contact Melissa Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org 9:00 a.m. each morning. Food will be ready for those who request it each day at our drive through pick up from 11:00-11:30 a.m. at the sidewalk next to the outdoor eating area. If this changes at any time during our remote learning, we will contact all of our families to let them know of new protocols for food service.Your student’s teachers will be emailing you and your student with reminders and details regarding the remote learning schedule and instructional activities for the remote learning week. Please be sure that you and your student check these emails. We are respectfully requesting that you allow your child’s teachers to send this information by the end of the day on Monday, 11/17. We have attached the remote learning schedule to this email and have posted it to the school’s website and social media platforms for you and your student to reference.Green Hill High School’s REMOTE LEARNING Plan stipulates that synchronous (live, whole group) instruction will occur on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays students will be expected to complete asynchronous (independent, self-paced) school work. Students may also be required by their teacher(s) to participate in small group and/ or one-on-one sessions. Students’ attendance will be determined by the meaningful engagement in both synchronous and asynchronous learning activities for all classes on all learning days. Please be sure that your students are participating in learning daily for all assigned classes.Any student who was assigned academic detention on Monday should not come to GHHS. Students should participate in scheduled asynchronous activities as scheduled by their teachers.Coaches will contact their athletes to let them know whether or not athletic practices and/or events will continue next week.For families that may be struggling with reliable access to the internet, please know that Green Hill High School’s parking lot has been made available as a hotspot for additional support during this time. Also, please notify your student’s teachers if your internet is not reliable so that we can provide learning packets as needed.We understand that this is a very difficult time for everyone and we appreciate all of the flexibility extended during implementation of our REMOTE Learning. Please let your student’s teachers know about individual needs or concerns. We will continue to give you updates as information becomes available. We are in this together!Regards,Principal Dawson

Canned Food Drive:
The Student Council is doing a Canned Food Drive with Truth and Grace Church this week, to support families in need right before the holidays. They are specifically in need of soup, canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned meats, mac and cheese, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, toilet paper, hand soap, and hand sanitizer. Please have your child turn in the canned goods to their Homeroom/Focus teacher this week. All items must be donated by Monday, November 16th. There will be a competition among classes to see which grade level can donate the most goods, and the winning class will be rewarded next semester. With one of our key characteristics being “Community” let’s show Mt. Juliet what the Hawks are capable of when we come together for families in need!

Parents (specifically ones who drive onto campus!),
Now that we have been able to see the amount of vehicles on the campus, particularly those utilizing the car rider area, we need to make some adjustments in order to facilitate more vehicles on the school campus and free up space on N. Greenhill Road. The change is effective Thursday morning, August 20th.
We are going to switch the bus lanes and the car rider lanes. This will mean parent drivers/car riders will be able to fill both lanes around the entire building. The buses will now enter from the Lebanon Road entrance and fill the drive thru marked with Handicapped parking for events.
The attachment has parents marked in blue and the new bus route marked in red. Student drivers will continue to use the entrance/exit from Lebanon Road.
Please be attentive while driving around the campus as we will have students walking to both cars and buses.
I appreciate everyone's patience during this process. I know traffic has been slow, but drivers have been gracious as we have worked to keep things safe.
