A Message from Mrs. Swieckowski

Hello Hodgkins Families,

I hope that everyone has had an opportunity to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors! After months of being inside, its nice to Sharpen the Saw and get moving. At Hodgkins we are moving right along in our planning for the return to the building in August. We continue to listen to medical and government officials in regards to recommendations for reopening schools safely with the highest priority being put on the health and well being of our students and staff. We continue to be grateful for your continued confidence and trust that you put in the staff at Hodgkins. We miss our students and look forward to seeing them in August!


With Kind Regards,

Mrs. Swieckowski

Wash Your Hands

Let's Be Proactive: Proper Hand Washing

Hand washing has always been an important procedure in school, but it's important to do it properly. This summer, take some time to go over this technique with your child. For our younger students it can be useful to use songs to remind them of the steps and to signal the amount of time they should be washing their hands. Discuss with your child that by washing their hands properly they are helping to keep themselves and their friends healthy! Below are a few resources that may help with the conversation:
