Developing a comprehensive Communications Plan is one of the board of education’s goals for the current school year. One component of the plan is to increase the district’s outreach to our community by creating a cohesive social media presence. Twitter is a free micro-blog that provides principals and educators with the opportunity to share exciting happenings in the local public schools. The district is pleased to announce that the district and each of its nine schools is now on Twitter. Parents, students, and community members are welcome to join Twitter and to “follow” the district. Twitter is also available for mobile devices, so the latest news and announcements can be accessed directly from a user’s phone.
Here is a list of user names to “search” and “follow” once you join Twitter:
District = @HPSSuperintend1; @HicksvillePS; @ HPS-ENL
Burns Avenue Elementary = @BurnsHps
Dutch Lane Elementary = @HDutchlane
East Street Elementary = @EastHps
Fork Lane Elementary = @ForkHps
Lee Avenue Elementary = hps_lee
Old Country Road Elementary = HpsOCR
Woodland Elementary = @WoodlandHPS
Hicksville Middle School = @APHMS1
Hicksville High School = @hps_hhspride
Most accounts will appear below Twitter’s search bar even before you have finished typing in the user names. The district hopes you will join them in this exciting new communications initiative and enjoy seeing all the wonderful activities that go on in their schools every day.
