Pocahontas’ website has a page dedicated to In-Person Learning Norms. It can be found under the following tabs: Resources and Parent & Students Resources. The same information can be found here, on our main page, during the start or our return to in-person learning.
In-Person Learning Norms
We are very excited to be opening our doors to students, and this webpage is designed to provide our students with important procedures and expectations. Pocahontas Middle School is dedicated to providing students with a strong educational experience while following all the safety guidelines of the Center for Disease Control and Virginia Department of Health. Full compliance of the safety guidelines required Pocahontas to change many procedures. The new procedures are explained in a video format. We invite each student and family to familiarize themselves with the information found below by watching each video. Safety is everyone’s responsibility, and knowing the protocols and procedures is the first step in safety.
- Classroom Procedures
- Lunch Procedures
- Library Procedures
- Bathroom Procedures
- Bus Procedures
- Code of Conduct
We are so excited to welcome you to Pocahontas Middle School!
The attached document will share information on class schedules, online school schedule, school counselors’ contact information, online parent resources, and step-by-step directions for logging into your laptop and Schoology.
What is Anonymous Alerts?
The Anonymous Alerts safety and anti-bullying reporting system helps combat negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communication between those submitting reports (students, parents or community members) and school division administration and staff members. System users have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
To use the new app, students, parents or others simply visit the Henrico County Public Schools website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or the text link to submit a report expressing a concern. Anonymous Alerts apps can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or Chrome stores.
Users enter Henrico Schools’ Anonymous Alerts activation code – Henrico – and select the school to which the message should go. Informational posters explaining how to use the system will be displayed in HCPS schools and offices.
To send reports from the internet, go to: https://report.anonymousalerts.com/henrico.
To send a report from your phone:
- Download the free Anonymous Alerts app from the Apple Store, Google Play store or Chrome store.
- Launch the app and enter the activation code, Henrico.
- Send important reports to school officials.
- If desired, add a screenshot, photo or video about the incident.
