Dear High School Families,
As you know, the Holland Central School District will be closed through April 20, 2020. I encourage you to help your student continue to learn while he or she is at home. To help students engage in educational material, high school faculty and staff have worked to create supplementary learning resources and opportunities to connect online for help and support. This information is located on the teachers’ webpages, but we also encourage your child to check his or her school email daily for updates. These materials do not replace what your child has been learning at school, but during this time, it is important that students continue to read, write, problem solve, think critically, and reflect. The general aim is that each class will have about 20-30 minutes of a suggested activity for students to do each day, so that we are giving about 2 hours of potential learning opportunities per day to students. In addition, the aim is that teachers will utilize a program called Zoom to potentially have video conference “office hours” each day where students can check in with teachers as they desire (teacher webpages will have information about those office hours and how to access them). We do not anticipate students being required to “turn in” work and grading will not continue.
During this time, your child’s teachers will also reach out by phone from time to time to check in and see how he or she is doing. They will ask if there is anything else we can do to help and support you. When you receive these calls, you will hear that you are being connected through Zoom when you answer the phone. Remember, this is a software system we are using to make calls and conduct meetings online. Please do not hang up and mistake it for telemarketing.
On behalf of Holland Central School District and the faculty and staff of Holland High School, I thank you for your support and patience as we work through this unchartered territory in education and urge you to continue to follow the guidelines from local, state, and national authorities in order to keep our community healthy and safe.
We are honored to spend each day with your child and will truly miss them during this time away. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
Mr. Carl Guidotti

This year the Holland PTO and SADD Club are planning the Post Prom event. We need your help to ensure that it will be a safe and memorable evening for all the students that attend. Please note that the Post-Prom is open to ALL seniors and juniors even if they do not attend the prom itself. It is a FREE event and we are so excited for the students to enjoy all the fun things we have planned.
Please see the Post Prom Letter for more details.
