Technology
Google Meet is the official communication tool for all HHCS staff and parent meetings and smaller gatherings. Students need to use their HHCS Google account to access Google Classroom. Check out this video if you need help logging in to your HHCS Google account: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zhv07YjrACw&feature=youtu.be

To ensure the safety and security of students' Google accounts, if your student needs their Google password reset please reach out to their teacher so that parent/guardian verification can take place and they will then forward legitimate requests to Technology Services. This will help to avoid releasing  passwords to someone posing as a parent/guardian. We appreciate your patience with this process.


Google reminder
When logging in from home, students must include the @myhhcs.org to their username in order to successfully log-in. For additional information regarding at-home use of Chromebooks, click here.
