What's New in Hoosic Valley

Hudson Valley Distance Learning Classes

July 20, 2015 - Attention all students interested in taking any of the following Hudson Valley Distance Learning classes: General Psych, Business Law or Sociology. Letters were mailed home to students that were able to be scheduled into these classes. Students must fill out paperwork in the guidance office by August 4th if they intend to take the class in the fall. The guidance office is open M-F from 8:00 am till noon.

Letters were also sent to those student that were not able to get into the course. Theses three courses are available to take on-line rather than through ITV. This would allow the student to still take the class even thought it does not fit into their schedule at the ITV time slot. The cost would remain the same at $50/credit. Taking an on-line course has the benefits of allowing the student to complete the course work as their schedule permits. Students signing up for the online option should remember this is a College Level course and they must keep up with the reading and online assignments.

Also, Mrs. Barton will be in the health office on August 12th and 13th  only to process paperwork for blue cards.  Please make sure to send in any paperwork (physicals, interval health history/athletic health history forms) before then if your child plans on participating in a fall sport.  Remember: interval health history and athletic health history forms can be sent in no earlier than 30 days before the start of the sport.
