If parents have questions, Hardin County Schools officials are going to give them answers during a virtual question-and-answer this week.
Officials will host the session at noon Friday on Hardin County Educational and Community Television and the HCEC-TV YouTube channel at youtube.com/user/Gryan2015.
According to a news release, it also airs at later dates on both mediums. HCEC-TV is broadcast on Brandenburg Telecom Channel 1, Comcast Channel 2 and Spectrum Cable Channel 184.
HCS spokesman John Wright said in the release that parents, students, community and staff members are invited.
“There are a lot of parents who will be bringing children to school for the first time through kindergarten and preschool or parents who have children that will be transitioning to middle school or high school,” Wright said. “These exciting times sometimes bring questions and a little bit of nervousness. We encourage our stakeholders to watch the conversation live or at a later time.”
The Q&A session will last no longer than 30 minutes. Officials from several departments including instructional services, student services, human resources, transportation, child nutrition, early childhood and the superintendent’s office will participate.
Those who have questions can ask them on a form before the session which is on the district’s webpage, hardin.kyschools.us. The form can be found under the “News and Announcements” section and at the top of the list of “Quick Links” items. It also can be found at bit.ly/HCSQandA21.
Questions submitted before 11:30 a.m. July 16 have a better chance of getting answered during the session.
Wright said in the release that those interested also can ask questions through phone calls, email or other forms of communication if needed.
“The start of the school is a big deal. It is likely that if one person has a question, another person has that same question,” Wright said in the release. “We hope this is a venue is one which our parents, students, community and staff can feel free to ask beneficial questions.”
