From the Principal

The HPES team is continuing to make plans for the building project. We are currently exploring all options for “housing” our students during the construction period and hope to have a viable plan within the next month. If you have any questions, please direct them to my email dreilly@hpes.org.

For up to date happenings at HPES please check out our Facebook and Twitter feed. Also information is in the board minutes, Front Porch Forum, and the News and Citizen. Thank you for all of your support.

Meet the New 5th Grade Teacher!

Salutations! My name is Camron Colston and I am beyond excited to be teaching 5th and 6th grade literacy at Hyde Park Elementary School this year. I received my Master of Education at the University of North Florida back in 2014. Although I am from Florida, I have been working in Vermont for the past few years in the public school systems in various roles. Growing up, I had passions for reading, writing, and above all else: theater—Passions which I hope to instill in my 5th and 6th graders. I am looking forward to a wonderful year within the Hyde Park community.


Parking and Drop Off

CALLING ALL THOSE WHO DROP OFF CHILDREN IN THE MORNING Be reminded that our parking lot consists of 3 zones, all of which are clearly marked:

1. PRESCHOOL PARKING: Spaces designated for Families with preschool students ONLY.

2. DROP OFF ZONE: To be utilized as a careful drive in and drop off student. NOT FOR PARKING.

3. BUS DROP OFF: Only buses are able to drive into the main parking area to unload students.

What has been noted is idling cars, then of course; parked cars, and vehicles traveling too fast.

Please know that HPES understands families’ wishes to bring their children to school. We have walkers coming in from the village and students, some very young, getting out of cars who all need our care and attention. Please keep all of our students safe by following the guidelines for dropping of students. Drive as though your children go to school here.


Box Tops

Don't forget to send in those Box Tops! Last day to send them in is Wednesday, October 19th The class that sends in the most will win a Pizza Party!!!

Maple Syrup for Lunch

Calling all Maple Sugar Producers! We here at HPES have a fantastic lunch program that would very much benefit from your local Maple Syrup! One of the most popular lunches here is the Brunch/Lunch. Syrup is served, just not Real Maple Syrup. There are multiple health benefits from eating Maple Syrup and our Food Service Coordinator, Donna Ferland, has mentioned that she would love to utilize maple syrup as a substitute for sugar in other baked goods. It’s a win-win! Thanks for your consideration in donating Real Vermont Maple Syrup to Hyde Park Elementary’s Food Program!

Save the Date! First Date!

All Hyde Park Hawks! Please save the date for Friday, October 28th for our first dance of the year to support the 6th grade class trip! It will be Halloween themed and will be super fun! More information to follow as the date gets closer.
