It is that time of year again when we are looking for members to serve on our School Council. The council is comprised of HFES staff, parents/guardians, and community members. We meet monthly either virtually or in person. The purpose of this group is to work together on ways to improve our school.

If interested, please email Mr. Collins @ ncollins@attleboroschools.com

Based on interest, we may need to hold elections.

Temperature Change

With fall weather upon us please make sure you children are dressed to be comfortable outside for recess. We will be going outside for recess as long as the "Feels like" temperature is above 30°F (unless it's raining, snowing, or dangerously windy).

Rooms Communication App

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.
