Weekly Update from Mrs. Sawyer!

Posted by Kondel Geoff on 1/14/2020

Hello HVES Families!


You made it! This week, the final assignments for Remote Learning were sent out!  Monday and Tuesday are open for make- up work and teachers will wrap everything up on Wednesday.  Thank you all so much for the time and care that you have taken to partner with us for remote learning.  I know how challenging this has been for families, and I want you to know that we appreciate you!  Please be sure to take some time to relax and enjoy this summer!


Certificates: Certificates of completion will be sent out on Friday, June 19th.  In the letter you will find the name of the teacher your child will have for the 20-21 school year.  Please know that an incredible amount of work goes into creating the class lists each year.  This process is extremely complex and teachers put a lot of thought into the most appropriate placement for every child.  For these reasons, we are unable to accept parent requests for placements and once the lists are complete, all placements are final and will not be changed.  Thank you so much for your understanding with this!


Fall:  I know that there has been a lot of unrest and anxiety surrounding what school will look like in the fall.  Please know that we share your anxiety about the uncertainty of what is to come.  As the state issues further guidance, our plans will take shape and we will communicate them to you.


Belongings:  There are still a few bags left here in the office.  If you haven’t received your child’s bag, please call the main office at 743-0876 to arrange a time to pick it up.  


Here is a link to the school calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.

Michelle Iglesias from Berkshire Paint and Sip has some free painting workshops for kids called Cookies and Canvas.  Here is the link with details!


As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns over the summer.  I am here to help in any way that I can!


Stay well and enjoy the summer,
