You Might Want To Sit Down For This…

January 19, 2021

Hey Raiders!

Do you like taking pictures?  Do you like winning things?  Now you can do both!

Over the next 10 weeks, the Moody Yearbook will be holding weekly photo contests.  Each week will have different themes.  Submit photos that match the themes and you could win a free 2020-2021 Moody Yearbook and also have your photo showcased on the morning announcements.

But, wait!  There’s more!  The winner from each week’s contest will also be included in a special “Student Spotlight” section of the Moody yearbook.

This week’s themes are “First Day of School” and “Halloween”.  To submit your photos, head over to hjeshare.com and use code moodyraiders.  Be sure to include your name when submitting your photos!  Submissions for this week’s photo contest must be received by 4pm Friday and the winner will be announced next week.

Sunday Message 1/10

January 11, 2021
Good evening Moody Raiders. This is Mrs. Doss calling with your Sunday message. 

Thank you so much to the parents who participated in the town hall meetings this past week. Hopefully you gained some new insight into your child’s virtual learning experience and how to support them in being successful students.

Are you having second thoughts about the learning environment decision you made for your child in November? Would you like your child to continue learning virtually for the remainder of the school year instead of coming into the school building in February? If you answered YES, give us a call at 261-5015 between the hours of 8AM and 4PM. We will take your information over the phone and make the necessary changes. If you receive the answering service, please DO NOT leave a message; simply call us back. Thank you.

Is your student scheduled to return to the school building for in-person learning? If so, stop by the school this week from 8AM-2PM and pick up a cotton face mask provided to your student courtesy of HCPS. Masks will be available for pick-up at the front door of the school.

If you are planning for your student to return to our school building for “in-person” learning in February, please take a few minutes to review your student’s contact information via the HCPS PowerSchool Parent Portal. In particular, it’s important to ensure that emergency contact information is up-to-date. Students may be released only to individuals currently listed as a contact or emergency contact. The list of authorized adults that you provide will remain until a change is submitted. Changes require two (2) business days to take effect. For step-by-step instructions on how to update information, use the link attached to this message. How to Update Your Contact Information

“The past is your lesson. The present is your gift. The future is your motivation.” Raiders, learn from your lessons and let it be a catalyst for your motivation. Have a great week!

In January, Henrico Schools will make adjustments to curbside meal service

December 16, 2020

Distribution at 12 schools will be consolidated with nearby sites

Henrico, Va. Dec. 16, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools will consolidate curbside meals distribution at 12 schools with lower participation rates and merge service at those facilities with nearby schools, effective Monday, Jan. 4.

Each of the discontinued sites is three miles or less from an alternate site with curbside meal service. Families aren’t limited by these sites, however, and can choose to pick up school meals at any other HCPS school. The last day for curbside pickup service at the 12 sites will be Thursday, Dec. 17. Neighborhood meals distribution at bus-stop sites will continue unchanged. A list of alternative sites is below:

HCPS’ School Nutrition Services Department has answered the challenge of a highly unusual school year by distributing free breakfasts and lunches to students using a two-pronged system — free curbside pick-up service at HCPS schools, and teaming with HCPS Pupil Transportation Services to distribute free meals directly to 61 stops in Henrico County neighborhoods, using school buses. See an online map of school and bus stop distribution sites by going to https://tinyurl.com/HCPSMealsSites.
