Hughes Academy Update

Good afternoon,

Please take a moment to read the Weekly Update.


COVID Notification Process – Not a Close Contact/Proceso de notificación de COVID: no es un contacto cercano

Effective Monday, September 13, Greenville County Schools will begin using Backpack to notify parents when a COVID-positive case has occurred in their child’s classroom or team.

The new Backpack notification process, which interfaces with PowerSchool, will allow principals to automatically distribute an email to parents of all students in a particular classroom. The new process is much faster and more efficient than our previous system of manually selecting each student’s name from the roster and entering it into a Phone Messenger system.

Please note that parents whose children are identified as “close contacts” will still receive a phone call from a school staff member.

Parents who have not done so already should set up a Backpack account using the steps outlined here.

Change of Information

The Student Emergency Information Form in the start of school student packet is sent directly to the Health Room.       

No updates are made to our student database from this form.

To change your address, phone numbers or emergency contacts:  
Use your Backpack account to update your contact information. You’ll need to scan a copy of a recent utility bill* or Change of Address Form. Please notify the school directly as you must provide two proofs of residency.

If your child will be a bus rider, you’ll also need to indicate that in Backpack or complete the Transportation Form, which is available on the district website.

*All address changes must include a current bill dated within past 30 days from either Duke Energy, Laurens Electric, Piedmont Natural Gas, Spectrum, or Greenville Water System. The bill must show the service address, not just the mailing address. If the bill is not in the parent’s name, please contact Guidance for additional information. Please bring paper copies to the Guidance Office or fax info to 355-6275. We cannot change your address without this documentation.

Questions? Please contact the Guidance Office at 355-6268. Thank you!

Tdap Vaccination Required to Enter 7th Grade

State law requires that all students have a Tdap vaccination to begin school their seventh grade year.  Students who have not been vaccinated cannot attend school and will not receive a schedule at orientation in August. Parents should contact their health care provider or the county Health Department (864-282-4100) to make arrangements as soon as convenient and provide a copy of the South Carolina Certificate of Immunization to the school. Copies can be mailed, faxed, or dropped off in person. Remember, this vaccination is required for all seventh grade students in order to begin school for the 2021-2022 school year.

Please contact the office with any questions at 864-355-6200.
