Good Afternoon from Hatfield Elementary School, 

Thank you to everyone who joined our all-school meeting this afternoon. It was nice to see so many faces and to share in celebration of our HES community. I hope you’ll join me in taking on the challenge of bringing down the fences that divide us in the coming months! 

The big news is that next week we are able to bring more students into the building four days per week in our lower grades. While we are ready to bring back all students in grades 1-3 whose families indicated that they would like to be in-person 4 days per week, a recent situation beyond our control has led to us needing to have all of second grade remote next week. We are hopeful that by 3/8/21, second grade will be able to join us as well. In order to support this shift, we are happy to be adding four new people to our HES staff team. 

The goal is to have 4th-6th join in-person on 3/8/21. There are a couple of logistical pieces to put in place before then, but we are hopeful to meet that target. Be on the lookout for more information about 4th-6th grade next week. 

Thank you all for your continued support this year as we head towards Spring. 

Thank you,

-Conor Driscoll-
