Greetings Hercules High School,

We have had two great days of material distribution.  We have one make-up day scheduled for tomorrow, so if you have not picked up a schedule, dropped off your technology agreement or a copy of your medical form please do so tomorrow between 9am - 12pm. 

Make up Material Distribution: Bell Schedule/Student Day: 

  • Friday, August 14th 9am - 12pm 

All classes will start on August 17th. Students will NOT be allowed on campus or on any school facilities until we are 100% certain that the conditions in the community and schools are safe. 

All students should have signed up for their grade level google classroom.  This will be the main method of communication to all students.  Parents, you can have your child invite you to the classroom as a guardian. This way you will also see the updates they receive.

  • Our Associated Student Body and Class Officers will be planning school wide activities, clubs/organization will be developed and all student to student communication wil take place in the grade level google classrooms.

  • Each student will be assigned a teacher for a Homeroom/Advisory period. Each homeroom/advisory period will be a live session.
