While one of the goals of Hebron Academy is to make students independent learners, it is important that parents are involved along the way. Parents are encouraged to use the interactive myHebron online community as a central means of communication with the School, whether messaging teachers or downloading a student’s grades and comments.
Families should expect to hear from the Academy on a regular basis throughout the year, starting in the summer with mailings and electronic newsletters; the parent e-newsletter is distributed weekly during the school year by the Communications Office.
Your student’s advisor will contact you within the first few days of the school year and send you summary reports at the end of each trimester. Teachers will write midterm comments and final grades and comments at the end of each trimester, all of which are posted on myHebron.
Parents of juniors may expect to receive an electronic newsletter and mailed correspondence from the College Counseling Office starting in the spring, which will continue throughout their child’s senior year.
Should your student have difficulties either within or outside of the classroom, you can expect a note or email from a teacher, advisor or dean regarding the situation.
Parents should establish contact with their child’s advisor and keep the advisor apprised of events in the family that might impact the student and work with the advisor to make the school experience a productive one for their child. Parents are also free to contact teachers directly and may contact an administrator at any time.
