Note from the Principal's Desk

Greetings Parents and Stakeholders,


Thanks to all of the parents' support over the past few weeks. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and flexibility. The teachers and staff are teaching, learning, adapting, shifting, pivoting, and ultimately succeeding. This year is offering challenges and difficulties that we could not have imagined. One thing that we are trying to stress to all of our students this year is to choose kindness. Thank you in advance for your choice of kindness as well. And like always, thank you for choosing E.J. Hayes: Where relationships foster learning!


Mr. Myers
