New to HPS? Welcome!

Welcome to the Holyoke Public Schools community. We are glad you are here!

HPS welcomes families from all backgrounds and life experiences. The district offers a wide variety of supports to help families acclimate to their new community. Our district website is a great place to start, so please take a look around! 

Family and Community Engagement

Our Family and Community Engagement Center is our families' main entry point to Holyoke Public Schools and a key gateway for information about HPS programs and initiatives. Each school is served by a Family Engagement point person who works to support families and schools to build and strengthen their relationship with each other, help them access information and resources, and develop their leadership and voice. You can find their contact information, along with a list of other resources, on the Family and Community Engagement Center page.
