Principal's Message

Dear Online School Community:

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Hanover County Online School - Home of the OWLs (Online We Learn)! On behalf of our entire leadership team, faculty, and staff, please know that we are so happy to have you and are very excited to work and learn with you this year!

Virtual learning is a unique experience. Every day our teachers will provide relevant and engaging lessons for our students while giving them the opportunity to demonstrate their learning through individual work, group collaboration, and more!

The most important thing is to remember the foundational characteristics of our school:

  • Relationships come first.
  • Extending grace to one another is essential.
  • Every single one of our students has enormous potential, and the faculty and staff of HCOS has the skill and talent to find and nurture this potential.

 This online family/student handbook is intended to provide an overview of our school and is a supplement to the HCPS code of student conduct. Please read both documents carefully and refer to them throughout the school year. And please remember, the OWL faculty and staff are always here to support you!
