First day of school for Grades 1-12 postponed until Thursday, August 30th due to the extreme heat

Please see the important message below from Dr. Zrike…

This is Superintendent of Holyoke Public Schools Steve Zrike calling you to welcome you back to the start of the 2018-19 school year.  Unfortunately, due to the excessive heat warning issued for Hampden County, we have decided to postpone the first day of school for Grades 1 to 12 until Thursday, August 30th. Many of our buildings are not equipped to keep students and staff cool enough during such extreme weather conditions. In the interest of student and staff safety, it is best to launch our school year on Thursday. We appreciate your flexibility and look forward to seeing our Grade 1-12 students ready to learn on Thursday. The City of Holyoke’s spray parks are open from 11 am to 7 pm.


Este es un mensaje del Superintendente de las Escuelas Públicas de Holyoke Steve Zrike dándoles la bienvenida al comienzo del ano escolar 2018-19. Desafortunadamente, debido al aviso de calor excesivo para el Condado de Hampden, hemos decidido posponer el primer dia de clases para los Grados 1-12 hasta el jueves, 30 de agosto. Muchos de nuestros edificios no están preparados para mantener a nuestros estudiantes y personal en condiciones suficientemente frescas. En interés de la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal hemos considerado mejor comenzar el ano escolar el jueves. Apreciamos su flexibilidad y esperamos ver a nuestros estudiantes de grados 1-12 listos para aprender el jueves. La Ciudad de Holyoke tendrá las fuentes de agua abiertas en los parques de 11 am a 7 pm. Gracias.
