From the Principal


Next Thursday and Friday, March 21st and 22nd, HPES will be having early dismissals.  Students who are picked up or walk will be dismissed at 11:20 am.  The busses will be loaded and leave HPES at 11:30am and go directly to their destinations which means a much shorter bus run.  LUMS and LUHS are being dismissed at 12:35 pm on these days and will be on a separate bus run so please plan accordingly!  Parents whse children ride the bus to a daycare – PLEASE INFORM YOUR DAYCARES OF OUR EARLY DISMISSAL AND THE SEPARATE BUS RUN FOR HIGH SCHOOLERS.  Reminder – Friday the 22nd was originally scheduled as a No School – Inservice Day.  We are having school to make up for a snow day. 

Co-Parenting 101

Relationships and marriages can end….but families endure.  Co-parenting = Putting Kids First!

Raising a child with a co-parent you no longer live with or have a relationship with, presents a unique set of challenges for families.  Please join us for a three-session parenting class that addresses some of the common issues faced by co-parenting families and offers guidance, tools and inspiration to move towards positive change for all!  Topics to be discussed include communication, cooperation, transitions, discipline, and rules, modeling healthy behaviors, consistency, and creating peace and stability for our children!

This is a Free 3-Session Parenting Class on Thursdays 3/28, 4/4, and 4/11 from 6-8 pm at the Lamoille Family Center.  To register, please call the Lamoille Family Center @ 888-5229.  Childcare provided!
