Student Placement 2021 - 2022
Dear HES Families and Caregivers,
The HES community is looking forward to the return to a "normal" school experience next fall for our children, complete with a new playground. !
Part of this return to normalcy begins with the student placement process for the 2021 - 2022 school year. We take great pride in creating balanced, heterogeneous classes to best support student learning. You are welcome to provide about your student through this optional survey which will be helpful to me and our faculty as we determine next year's K-4 classes at Harwich Elementary School.
If you choose to complete this survey, your response is required by Friday, April 30, 2021. Requests for a specific teacher cannot be honored, and class assignments are final and will not be changed. If you would like to provide input regarding your student’s placement, now is the time to do so. Please note that the only option for next school year is in-person learning.
Please contact me if you have questions or concerns at email@example.com or 508-430-7216. We look forward to the 2021-2022 school year with your child!
Mary Oldach, M.Ed
Principal, Harwich Elementary School
