Attention HPS Students & Families:


New HPS Schedule Effective Monday, January 29

On Monday, January 22, 2018, the HPS Board of Education approved the following plan for make-up days. Please keep in mind that HPS is counting instructional hours for students and the district must consider work days for staff.

HPS is adding 12 minutes to the instructional day at Hickory High School (HHS).  Five minutes will be added to the beginning of the day and seven minutes to the end of the day. The start time at HHS will be 7:30 AM and the end time will be 2:37 PM.

There is no need for adjustments to the schedule at Hickory Career & Arts Magnet High (HCAM).

Additionally, HPS is adding 10 minutes to the end of the day at the middle and elementary schools.  Grandview will dismiss at 2:25 PM and Northview at 2:30 PM.  Jenkins, Oakwood and Viewmont will dismiss at 3:10 PM.  Longview will dismiss at 3:00 PM and Southwest at 3:15 PM.

The additional instructional time will start on January 29, 2018.

Please keep in mind HPS must account for the days of school missed and any school delays in order to meet the state required 1,025 instructional hours.  It is still early in the winter season and HPS may experience additional inclement weather.

Once again, the changes begin on Monday, January 29, 2018.

Thank you!
