We Shine at Hyman Fine!

Blue Pride Starts Here!

Dear Hyman Fine Families,

Thank you to Pete Tarsi, Drama Director at Attleboro High School and AHS drama students for performing their annual children's play, This year’s performance, Planet of the Perfectly Awful People. The play follows a girl named Annie whose spaceship heading to Venus is thrown off course to the planet Mean-us. There, she meets three of the planet’s awful people, who are grouchy and grumpy all the time. Over the course of her time there, she and another traveler named Zebulon, teach the people of Mean-us that it’s much better to be nice to each other than to be mean. It was amazing to have a live performance for the HFES community. The staff and students loved it.

Reminder, we only have school on Monday and Tuesday this week.

No School (Thanksgiving Break) - Nov 23rd-25th.

Families who requested at-home covid tests will receive them Monday. Students will bring them home in their backpacks.

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.
