Dear Families, Partners, and Colleagues,

HPS is truly moving forward with important changes that will help strengthen the educational experience for all students. We’ve been sharing information regularly about our multi-year strategic planning efforts, and also the steps we are taking to transition to discrete elementary schools (grades PK-5) and middle schools (grades 6-8) and to redraw school boundary lines. If you’d like to learn more, please attend one of the three “Moving Forward” conversations we have scheduled for the coming weeks. See story below for more information.
