➢ The office staff will return for a soft reopening on Tuesday.  Office ours for record support will continue to be 10:30am – 12:30pm.  If your child is transferring and you need copies of records, we will gladly help you acquire these documents, however you will need to schedule an appointment for pick up of these documents.


➢ Just a reminder, that registration for PPS schools will be done online.  Please visit the PPS website or the James Hurst website for the link to begin the registration process.  If you have any questions, please contact the school during our office hours.


➢ Once all retentions have been confirmed, and report cards completed, the final report cards will be mailed by the first of next week.  


➢ PPS has decided to only offer virtual summer school to students in grades 3-6 who have the larger academic gaps.  A final summer school list will be finalized on Tuesday, June 16th, and those students will receive an email and/or a robo call to confirm acceptance into our first virtual summer school.  Summer School Digital Device “Walk-Up” Distribution is on Thursday, June 18th, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Parents/guardians will only be able to pick up a device and must bring a valid issued ID.   Note that the time for your device pickup is based on the first letter of your last name. The pickup schedule is by last name and is as follows:

                                 SUMMER SCHOOL INFORMATION 

May 18, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian(s):

Your child has been selected to participate in our 2020 Virtual Summer Camp.  Based on a  review of your child’s academic performance and/or chronic absenteeism for the 2019-20 school year indicates that your child will benefit from this four-week academic support starting June 29, 2020and concluding on July 23, 2020Please note that the 2020 Summer Camp Program is held Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.  

It is our goal to work with you to help assure your child’s academic success. Children can benefit from summer school instruction that focuses on core academics through an online format. Laptops will be distributed to students that will be participating in the camp. Therefore, it is necessary to fill out the Google Form: , indicating your intent to participate. Therefore, parents should expect a strong emphasis on academics throughout the summer program.  However, it is important for those children to receive additional instruction that will reinforce essential academic skills.

We ask you to assist us by having your child in designated place for the camp each day of the summer session.   Good communication enhances the learning environment for everyone involved.  A Class Dojo Page will be developed for two-way communication between parents and teachers.  Once this has been established, you will receive a link to connect,

Virtual Summer school classes begin on Monday, June 29, 2020

What's Happening

    Choose drinks with less added sugar. Teach kids how to recognize drinks that are high in added sugars. Encourage them to choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. Kids should drink 2 to 3 cups of low-fat (1%) or fat-free milk a day, depending on age. 

    Offer kids fruits and vegetables during meals and snacks. Try new fruits and veggies together as a family. 

    Help kids discover fun ways to stay busy and active this summer. Limit TV and video game time to no more than 1-2 hours a day. 

    Kids need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day. Help your family get moving with games, dancing, and more

mission It is the vision of James Hurst Elementary to recognize the need of the students to have a strong academic foundation as established by our state. We will create an atmosphere that promotes a desire to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially.


  • We believe all students can learn.
  • We believe all students have the right to learn in a safe environment.
