Mrs. Guiliano (our Middle School counselor), Mrs. Gardner (FCSSP) and myself will be hosting two virtual information sessions this week (we are combining with ESM 8th grade parents as well since Mrs. Guilano works at both schools). There are also some important upcoming dates regarding the RSCO lottery and school choice fairs (see attached flyer).


You can choose one of the following virtual sessions (we will also record the sessions and share in case you are not able to attend). Please ​reach out with any questions!

Gr. 5-8 Fleeces Backordered - Reminder of Uniform policy for cold weather

Liz has been working with our vendors to order more BMSS fleeces for our older students, but unfortunately, the supply is back-ordered. We are sorry for the inconvenience and will keep you updated once we have received more. Students can wear any color long-sleeved shirt under their short-sleeved uniform shirts to stay warm

Nut-Free School Zone

Please be mindful that all schools in HPS are nut-free school zones. Thanks for helping keep students with nut allergies safe!

Dismissal Reminders for Gr. 5-8 Pick-Ups

For our families who are picking up 5th-8th graders at the back entrance - Please help us keep dismissal safe and running smoothly by (1) driving one way down the street (from Flatbush Ave. to Coleman St.) and parking only on the side of the street closest to the back of the school (this is for safety reasons so students do not have to cross the street to get to your car, and (2) if there isn't a spot available, please turn at the stop sign and park on the hill that is going towards Brookfield St (park on the right with your car pointed down the hill) and we will make sure your child walks safely to your car. Thanks for your cooperation!

Reducing COVID waste - Using reusable water bottles & reusable masks!

Hi parents - in order to reduce the amount of COVID waste, we encourage your children to bring reusable water bottles (so we are not going through so many plastic water bottles) and also reusable face masks that can be washed (instead of the 1-use medical masks). We will be distributing reusable plastic water bottles with our school logo to students who are interested, and please let us know if you are in need of reusable fabric masks for your child. Thanks!

Monthly Virtual Parenting Workshops - Starting Wed, Oct. 27 at 6 pm!

See attached flyer from Mrs. Gardner & Mrs. Mullings! Our first virtual parenting workshop will be Wed, Oct. 27 at 6pm and the topic will be around attendance. You can join using this Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/8742554107?pwd=S3FNZTBKL2NsQ2FhejhyM0F0VFBpQT09
