An online conversation Tuesday night with parents and stakeholders of the Hope Public Schools kick-started the process for HPS campuses to re-open for the 2020-2021 school year August 13, both on-campus and online.

HPS Superintendent Dr. Bobby Hart made it clear the 2020-2021 school year will look and feel as “normal” as the district and its personnel can accomplish.

“Our goal is to have a normal school day,” Dr. Hart said. “There may have to be a limit to the number of students on the playground or in a classroom at one time. Our goal is to make it as normal a year as possible, however that can be accomplished given the circumstances.”

Hart and HPS administrators fielded more than two dozen questions from parents and patrons of the district during an hour-long live-streamed Facebook “town hall.”

Hart said the district will have its definitive plan for re-entry into the school year ready for public release in early July.
