Forms, Fees, Attendance, and Microsoft Teams – Oh My!

September 15, 2020
Need to complete your student’s forms or pay fees? Go to the Henrico County Public Schools’ website https://henricoschools.us/ and click on “Online Services” in the upper left-hand corner. Scroll down for ALL online services.

RYCOR Online Forms: RYCOR online forms enables all HCPS families to submit school forms using a secure online website accessed through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Please update/complete these forms by September 20.

School Fees: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, HCPS is waiving the laptop fee ($25), the science fee ($5), and the P.E. fee ($4)! Some other classes may still require a fee. Online School Payments (OSP) allows families of middle- and high-schoolers to pay school fees electron

Attendance Information: To encourage engagement and to communicate with parents about students attending each class, we will be sending emails daily if your child does not attend a class. We realize there are a multitude of reasons, but we also want to make sure you are aware.

If your child misses one or two classes due to an appointment, technology, or any other reason, you will receive an email from your child’s teacher letting you know that your child did not attend their class during that block. If you notify the teacher in advance, you will not get this email. In addition, please make sure your child completes the warm-up and any asynchronous work due that day by 11:59 pm.

If your child misses ALL their classes on a given day, AND they haven’t done the warm-up or any other asynchronous work by 11:59 pm, you will receive a notification from the school the following day.  If this is to be excused, you MUST call the attendance secretary, Ms. Lori Berry, at (804) 261-5015 with the reason for the absence.

Guest Login: To make sure we are all working in a safe environment, free of inappropriate online conduct, it is important that students log in to their virtual classrooms on their HCPS laptop with their Henrico school credentials. Effective immediately, teachers will not allow students to enter a classroom as a guest into their class. All students must log into Microsoft Teams using their HCPS assigned username and password. This ensures that they are properly recognized, authenticated, and verified to be admitted to a Microsoft Teams’ virtual classroom/meeting.

So if you didn’t know, now you know. And you can reference this for the rest of the year…and beyond!

Raiders!!!! Welcome Back!!!!

September 7, 2020
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Denise Doss and I am the principal of Moody Middle School. My primary focus is to meet the needs of our students, faculty, and community during these unprecedented times.

We begin this school year focused on providing quality instruction, and our theme, “Many minds – Many cultures – Same family,” acknowledges that our mission is to help every child feel welcome, connected, and part of the Raider family. Our staff is committed to utilizing  available technology to reach and connect with students. We also recognize the importance of social and emotional development. As a consistent guide for the entire school year, students will begin every school day with their advisory teacher.  Not sure where to report on Tuesday morning? Where do I go.docx

Moody’s mission is to create a safe and inclusive learning environment. We strive to ensure that every Raider family member is finding a way to feel connected, be challenged and know they are an important part of the larger Raider family. Our diverse population makes us a unique school with a variety of social and cultural backgrounds.

The virtual start of the school year will not be like any other that we have experienced in our lifetimes. Providing meaningful learning opportunities while attending to the health and safety needs of our students and staff will challenge all of us, but our commitment to both remains top priority.

We know there will be many questions throughout the year. As we learn answers, I will keep you informed and connected through weekly messages and on our website, gomoody.com.

It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Together, we will make it a great year. Have a good evening and we look forward to seeing our Raider family virtually at 8:30 Tuesday morning.
