Teacher Letters

We welcome letters from parents who wish to inform us of the needs (strengths, characteristics, etc.) of their child for the 2019-2020 school year. As we are unable to meet with each parent, this is a great way to share information about your child and help with placement for next year. We ask that you not mention a particular teacher’s name, since we will not be able to honor individual teacher requests. All letters should be provided to HSES in a sealed envelope addressed to Ms. Clark by May 17th.

EOG Testing Dates

The End of Grade (EOG) testing dates for 2019 are listed below. Please make every effort to ensure that your students are present on these dates. In order to maintain a quiet testing environment, and due to the number of staff utilized for testing, we do ask that families not come in for lunch on testing days and that volunteering is limited. We appreciate your help with this!
