We Shine at Hyman Fine!

Blue Pride Starts Here!

Dear Hyman Fine Families,

Thank you to all the families that were able to attend parent teacher conferences this past week. Please reach out to your child's teacher(s) if you were not able to schedule a conference. The HFES staff are willing to provide you with an update on your child's progress.


In anticipation of increased travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has provided additional at-home COVID tests for families who want them. There is no testing requirement in our schools; this is an entirely voluntary program. Families with students in any of our K-8 schools that want at-home tests need to fill out THIS FORM (only once per household is necessary) before Wednesday, November 16. Tests will be sent home with requesting students by Tuesday, November 22. Students at AHS can pick them up in their house offices any time before the break, beginning November 17.

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.
