11-5-21 Holyoke Update

Dear Families, Partners, Colleagues,

Did you know that the CDC recommends that children ages 5-11 get vaccinated against COVID-19? Read this press release from the Centers for Disease Control. If you have questions about the vaccine, we encourage you to talk to your healthcare provider. Children may be able to get their vaccine at their pediatrician’s office, and we will also plan a clinic at HPS. Details to come.


Do you know someone who embodies what it means to be kind and respectful? Send us their story as part of “A Pathway to Kindness” at Holyoke Public Schools! Just email a brief description of why you want to highlight them along with a photo or video to superintendent@hps.holyoke.ma.us. You can also tag us on social media using #BeKindHPS.
