Happy Martin Luther King Celebration Month!


Reminders for the Week:

  • January is the birth month of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was an American Baptist minister, activist, and one of the most prominent leaders in the Civil Rights movement from 1955 until he was assassinated in 1968. Please have students participate in an activity to recognize the great contributions of this awesome leader!
  • As per Mr. Clark's memo, we are encouraging everyone, staff and students, to continue wearing a well fitting mask through January 17, 2023. Lets stay healthy and safe during this time.
  • Wednesday and Thursday we will be conducting the NYS Grade 7 ELA simulation test. ALL laptop carts will be used for the test. No laptop carts will be lent out on Tuesday. Plan accordingly for your lessons. Please advise students to come to school with their devices charged and present, to avoid being without laptops as we prepare for this important simulation test.
  • As per Ms. Claudio's message: Please ensure you are taking attendance daily within the first 15 minutes of the start of class. If a student is not in class they must be marked absent so that their parent/guardian are promptly contacted.
  1. For 7th grade teachers-----IF STUDENT ARRIVES by 8:35 AM, Please mark them present. Anytime after is LATE.
  2. For 8th grade teachers ----If STUDENT ARRIVES by 7:45 AM, Please mark them present. Anytime after is LATE.
    • Teachers please ensure all classroom and exterior doors (doors leading to the outside) are closed and locked at all times. Also please stand outside of your classrooms during the changing of classes and dismissals to ensure a smooth transition from class to class and the safety of our students as they leave for the day.
    • In the absences of their teacher, students are to log on to iReady and complete a minimum of one reading and one math assignment.
    • Printed lesson plans are to be available near the door (in hanging file holders) or open in a tab on your Promethean boards.

    • Neighborhood Aide is watching: Please don't park in restricted areas.
    • The large containers and garbage bins that are taking up parking spaces near the Greenwich Street entrance are there as part of the HUFSD 2022 Bond Project that includes upgrades, add-ons, build outs, and the refresh of our school. The bins will remain until the work in the suites, e.g., electrical, heating, plumbing etc., is complete. The work will be performed after school hours. It is anticipated that this part of the project will be finished sometime in February 2023. Please be patient!


    Students involved in our after school programs must exit the building and come back in through the front doors. Please remind all students prior to dismissal.

    Thank you.


    Loaner Laptops need to be returned at the end of every school day!! The students are able to drop off prior to their last period.

    8th Grade loaner laptops are being used by teachers due to the fact that 2 students have not brought back those loaners since September. These are a first come, first serve premise if you only need 1 - 4 during the day.

    7th Grade loaner laptops are distributed in the morning, prior to Period 2. If a student is late and needs a laptop, please send them with a pass. These laptops are first come, first serve.
