All families of students currently in grades PreK-7 (who will be in grades PreK-8 in the fall) should have recently received letters mailed to their home addresses that include their children’s school placements for next fall. The letters also indicate whether their children are eligible for bus transportation and include a list of upcoming school tour dates for students who are changing schools.
In all, 3,136 letters were sent to students’ homes. Families of current PreK-7 students who did not receive this letter should email email@example.com or call (413) 534-2000, option 1. It is likely we will need to update your mailing address in our system.
Additionally, some families of students currently in grades 4 and 7 will receive an email today from firstname.lastname@example.org that includes a survey link. Survey responses are due by February 12. HPS is sending this survey based on family feedback received last fall. HPS is looking to hear from affected families whether they would like their rising 5th or 8th grade students to remain at their current school—assuming the same programming and grades are offered and there is space available.
