Good evening,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 HCPS School Year! We are excited to see most of you September 6, 2022, for the first day of school. Prekindergarten students will join us September 8, 2022. Please review the HCPS 2022-2023 Handbook/Calendar prior to the start of the school year.

We encourage parents and guardians to visit our Back to School information available on hcps.org. In addition to providing links to required, and optional forms, the Back to School webpage includes the attached checklist and provides links to important systemwide information like the calendar (new this year- a Student Calendar!), permission formspayment options like MySchoolBucks for school meals, GoFan for athletic event tickets, and new this year, School Cash Online for all other payments can be found on hcps.org. Bus stops and routes are scheduled to be released August 15, 2022 and will be available here

If you haven’t completed the application to determine eligibility for free and reduced-cost meals, you can find the link on the Back to School webpage. A copy of the application is also attached and is required to qualify for free and reduced-cost meals. *Eligible students may also be eligible for a free device protection plan, which covers damage to devices and chargers, and free credit bearing courses at Harford Community College.* In addition, this year will see the return of "declining balance" notifications from the Food and Nutrition office. We are required by law to notify parents and guardians when your child's food balance is getting low in MySchoolBucks. You can also set your own notification directly in MySchoolBucks to be notified if your child's account balance for the cafeteria is getting low. This, and other important information from the Food and Nutrition office can be found throughout the school year via the "Menus" button on hcps.org.

We hope you’ll follow HCPS and your individual school on social media (FacebookInstagramTwitter, and YouTube) for updates throughout the year. After you review the Back to School information on hcps.org, use our new email, [email protected] for any questions. This email will be available for any other questions throughout the school year. *Stay tuned for information on how to download the new HCPS app this year and get notices and information directly through notifications on your phone!*

We know it can be overwhelming to prepare to return to school. We’ll share systemwide information on HCPS social media channels and send more information via our mass communication system phone and email. Details on school supply lists, and any events to welcome students to each school will come from your home school so be sure to tune into school communications, too.

We look forward to partnering with you and your student for a successful school year!
