What are Isolation Rooms?

If a student arrives at school exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms – he/she is taken to the isolation room and then discharged to home as soon as possible. View this video to learn about the isolation rooms that have been established at each school and visit our School Safety webpage for more safety videos about the steps that we are taking to maintain a safe and healthy environment for staff and students.

Enrichment at Lawrence

Enrichment for Every Student

HPS is taking learning outside the classroom. Thanks to partnerships with many local and national organizations we have doubled enrichment opportunities each week to engage and inspire students. The full school day in our elementary and middle schools provides expanded opportunities for students to explore their interests in the sciences, the arts, sports, and local and world cultures

Access to Technology

Today’s students are tomorrow’s engineers, scientists, researchers and programmers. Through new technology and online programs, we’re connecting students with the opportunities that await them beyond high school.

At HPS, we know that students do best when they pursue their passions and are trusted to pick their pathway.

Improved High School Experience for All

HPS’ redesigned high school experience focuses on providing real-world learning opportunities for every student. We’ve quadrupled the number of college courses HPS high school students can access on and off campus through partnerships with HCC, Westfield State and UMass.

9th grade students have the opportunity to explore a range of college and career pathways. In 10th-12th grade, students focus on their interests and develop plans for success beyond HPS. We welcome and support overaged and under credited students back to school with new pathways to the diploma.

Expansion of Choice Programs

At HPS, we understand that each student has different strengths and interests. We’ve expanded choice programs, including dual language immersion, the health sciences, and STEM. Free Preschool programs are now in every neighborhood school and boast family friendly scheduling options.

High Quality Teaching and Learning

We’ve invested in recruiting and retaining top quality educators who inspire bold thinking, recognize student potential, and encourage all students to work towards their goals. The full school day increases time for teacher planning and development. New curriculum materials in math and ELA along with a laptop for each teacher will support engaging instruction.
