Principals Notes 8/14/22

Student Drop Off 8/15/22

HPA students, Monday morning should look like this…..

  • Parents have the option of parking in the spots designated in the church parking lot. Students may walk to the front of A building. The doors will open at 7:30AM.

  • Parents may also use the carline to enter the property off Las Vegas Trail. The gates will be opened by staff members at 7:45AM.

  • Student drivers may park in the student parking lot. We request that students not arrive until 7:45 AM or later.


Once inside, Middle School students will be directed to the A building and High School students will be directed to the D building. Students will drop off general supplies in the foyers of either building. Then students will be directed to grade specific classrooms to pick up their chromebooks, chargers, dismissal cards, maps, and a printed schedule.

Students will then be directed to their first period classes for the start of the day.

Schedule Changes:

Students will need to submit a course change form to the counselors for any requested changes. We may not be able to honor all requests because of scheduling limitations.

Schedule changes must be approved by a principal and have parent signatures before implementation.

On Monday, students should follow the printed schedule even if they are requesting changes. This will ensure they are not counted absent while changes are made.

Uniform Reminders:

Students are expected to be in full uniform Monday morning. Shirts must be tucked in and belts must be worn at all times. Outerwear must be approved HPA outwear.

We understand that the uniform store is running behind. Students should still wear the correct khaki or plaid bottoms. Polos must be navy or red. Please transition to polos with the crest as soon as you receive them from the uniform store.

Dismissal Reminders:

Communicate to your students prior to tomorrow how they will be going home. Students will be released to their designated dismissal location starting at 4:00PM. Students will not be allowed to have their cellphones during the dismissal process as it slows students down as they become distracted by their phones.

If students do not follow campus rules while waiting for parents in the walk-up lot, they will be required to exit through the carline.

For the carline, please pull as close as possible to the car in front of you. We MUST stay off Vegas Trail. Follow staff directions so that we can expedite the dismissal process.

Encourage your students to move out of the building quickly and efficiently. Most of the time, the line is delayed by students visiting in the hallways or slowly making their way to the back of D building.

Student Chromebooks:

On Monday 8/15/22, students will be issued their chromebooks. Returning students will receive the same computer they returned at the end of last year. New students will be issued a device for their use. New students and returning students who are being issued a different computer have a limited window to declare any non cosmetic pre-existing issues. Broken displays must be reported in the first 48 hours. Any other preexisting issue may be declared in the first two weeks for a free repair or replacement. After this window, the student is solely responsible for reimbursing the school for all necessary repairs. HPA understands that accidents happen and that nobody enjoys a surprise repair bill. It is for this reason that during your students enrollment process you were provided the opportunity to purchase a protection plan for your students device. If you elected to do so, please be sure to pay that invoice in MySchoolBucks.

For any questions related to your enrollment in the protection plan or regarding the payment process via MySchoolBucks, please contact Nancy Zirbas at nancy.zirbas@hpafortworth.com .

Thank you,
