ALLEGHANY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Alleghany County Public Schools will be offering a Summer HILL Academy for current students in Junior Kindergarten through 12th grade.

HILL, standing for High Intensity Learning Loss, will be held at each school for students in grades JK through eighth on a week-to-week basis between July 12-Aug. 5, 2021.

Students in ninth through 12th grades may attend traditional summer school offerings at Alleghany High School between July 6 and Aug. 5.

The primary focus for the weekly institutes at each school is to increase participation and allow for targeted intervention for students who are experiencing deficiencies and lost classroom time due to the ongoing pandemic.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided for students. The district says that transportation will also be provided in a more extensive manner due to each school housing their own students.

Parents have the option as to which week(s) they wish their students to attend which ranges from one-to-four weeks in grades JK to eight.

Students in sixth through eighth grades who have failed two or more core subjects will be expected to attend all four weeks of summer school so they may be considered for entry into the next grade.

Times for each session are listed below:

  • JK through eighth grade: 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday
  • Ninth through 12th grade: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday

For parents with students in grades JK to eight, you are asked to contact the school before June 15 for information and to schedule weeks to participate.
