Message from Mr. Elliott
I hope all is well with everyone. I'd like to thank our community for supporting our sudden change to virtual learning a few weeks ago. We have to be prepared for anything this year and I appreciate how challenging that is for everyone. Please know that we are all here to help and our teachers and staff are committed to our students and families.
Here are a few reminders to help us stay open this year:
1. Please send your students to school at 8:25 each day. This helps us maintain social distancing and allows for supervision at our doors.
2. Remember to have your child wear a mask each day.
3. Stay connected with your child's teacher through email or other forms of communication and apps.
4. Continue to let us know if any of your children (or someone in your home) test positive. Many families continue to be responsible and this has helped us stay open as much as we have this year.
Take care everyone. Our students do a remarkable job each day and that is a credit to our families and teachers. Have a great November.

Picture Day for Virtual Students
We will be taking pictures of our virtual students from 9:00am - 11:30am only. Virtual students will enter and exit the building at Door #6 which is near the staff parking lot. Parents will not be allowed in the building. A Hadfield staff member will be present to help students enter and exit the building. Students will need to wear a mask to enter the building and will take it off for the photo.
