We Shine at Hyman Fine!

Blue Pride Starts Here!

Dear Hyman Fine Families,

We had an amazing first full week of school this week. Students and staff hit their stride mid week and powered through to Friday. We ended our week with picture day. A few pictures made their way to our website. We are in the process of scheduling our make up day, I will share the date once finalized.

We would like to invite all of you, including your children, to our "Welcome Back Night" on September 29th from 6-8 PM. At this event, you will be able to visit your child's classroom and meet the HFES staff that will be working with your child this year.

We continue to experience supply chain issues and need to make a few changes to Breakfast and Lunch menu this week

Breakfast/Lunch Menu Changes

Tuesday - 9/20

  • Breakfast will be pancakes instead of waffles.

  • Lunch will be chicken tenders with dinner rolls in place of chicken and waffles. Choice #2 and the sides will stay the same.

Wednesday - 9/21

  • Lunch cereal will be Kixx and not golden grahams.

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

Enjoy the beautiful weekend,

Noah B. Collins, Principal

Rooms Communication App


Starting late next week, 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, and we will have a table set up at Welcome Back Night.
