From the Principal

Reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 16th for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.


The building project and plans for next year are soon to be finalized.  Please stay tuned for more information about temporary facilities for students and the final details of our new building.  I appreciate your patience as this is a complicated process and we want to make sure that the students have a very positive experience during the next school year.  As soon as any information is finalized, we will get it to parents.  Thank you!


3/4 Tournament Weekend

Thanks so much to a tremendous weekend of basketball once again.  Our 3rd and 4th grade boys and girls represented our school amazingly!  Between the happy faces, hard work, respectful behavior and obvious improvement from start to finish, we could not be more proud.

Also, a heartfelt thank you to Hyde Park students past and present, families, staff, and community members that went above and beyond to make this event so special for all of our local kids.  Thirteen total teams from Eden, Johnson, Stowe, Morrisville, Cambridge, and of course Hyde Park all of which played four games apiece makes for a VERY busy weekend of hoops.  Hyde Park Elementary School could not have done this without your generous donations, and valuable time.

It is events like this that remind me how fortunate I am to work in such a terrific community!

Health News

There are many fun activities in this area with enough snow, such as snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling, as well as making snowmen, snow angels and sledding.   Check the thermometer frequently as a guide to how long you should stay outside.  The wind and moisture also affect how quickly you feel the cold.  What are the things we need to wear to make sure we stay safe?  According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), adults and children should wear the following for outdoor winter safety:

·         a hat

·         a scarf or knit mask to cover face and mouth

·         sleeves that are snug at the wrist

·         mittens (they are warmer than gloves)

·         water-resistant coat and boots, and for outside recess activities this also includes water-resistant snow pants

·         several layers of loose-fitting clothing (these layers will also help in our older building which can be different temperatures in different parts of the building)

·         Avoid tight fitting clothes that can reduce circulation. 

Their web site, www.cdc.gov, has a wealth of information on our health, including much more on staying safe and healthy in the winter.
