Dear Families, Partners, and Colleagues,

We’re halfway through the summer break! I hope everyone is finding time to enjoy some leisure time and recreational activities. 

If you’re looking for things to see and do, consider attending one or more of the summer events listed below. If you do, please be sure to stop by the Holyoke Public Schools table and visit with members of the district’s Family and Community Engagement team who will be on hand to answer questions and provide resources about a variety of school topics, including the district’s rezoning efforts.

We are also looking for community members to participate in a workshop set for July 26 to help us develop the district’s Graduate Profile. More information can be found below.

  • Questions about school rezoning efforts? Come see us at a summer event

  • Qualifying families will be sent transportation survey in late July
  • Back to School event on August 20 includes free backpacks and student supplies
