We Shine at Hyman Fine!

Blue Pride Starts Here!

Dear Hyman Fine Families,

I cannot believe we are already into the month of December. The days seem to be going by so fast. We had a great week back after the holiday break. The entire school earned a dance party during our Hawk Hero assembly. During the month of November the students combined for over 3lbs of HAWK HERO tickets.

  • This Thursday, December 8th , the Bamidale Dancers & Drummers will be here to perform for our students. They are only in town for a week so we were lucky to get a slot. Thank you to the PTO funding funding this performance.

  • APS is currently updating the mobile phone numbers on record so that we can send school cancellations and other urgent notices via text message. We ask that you update your contact information in Aspen using the workflow directions listed here: https://5il.co/1ldxt If you have multiple students, please complete the workflow for each one. Families who wish to have their child(ren) receive text messaging from the district/school, should provide student cell phone number(s) through this workflow as well.

  • Term 1 Info

Report cards will be published in ASPEN on December 9th. It is important to make sure you have access to your ASPEN account. If you need assistance with your login information, please reach out.

You may notice that an additional button, called Rooms, will be visible at the bottom right of our Attleboro Public Schools mobile app. This button is part of our integrated system of communication and will allow for your child’s teachers/coaches/and other staff to share detailed information (assignments, special events, practice schedules, etc.). More information is forthcoming.

In addition to downloading the app, guardians will need to set up their accounts. This can be done by going to the link contained in the email sent to all guardians yesterday (and following the directions)

If you haven’t already done so, please download the APS app designed for mobile devices.
