This Week's Note From Mr. Evan Chelman, Principal

Dear Hill-Roberts Families,

This is an exciting time of year in New England! We have many holidays that kids are experiencing in new and different ways. Vacations are times to spend with family and friends while relaxing. The weather can be nuts! Speaking of weather, please be sure your child is showing up to school with appropriate gear. Our Lost and Found is growing. If you think your child may have lost a jacket or sweatshirt, please come by our front lobby as you may have luck!

Next week, we will have a spirit week! See the flyer below, on FB, and on the Live Feed of our website. Teachers will be keeping students on their routines, as those are safe and predictable during such an exciting time of year.

Have a great weekend!

Did you get the APS Alert at 10AM last Wednesday?

APS is currently updating the mobile phone numbers on record so that we can send school cancellations and other urgent notices via text message. We ask that you update your contact information in Aspen using the workflow directions listed here: If you have multiple students, please complete the workflow for each one. Families who wish to have their child(ren) receive text messaging from the district/school, should provide student cell phone number(s) through this workflow as well.
