Early Release Friday, No School Monday

Friday, January 13 (tomorrow) is an early release day for students. You should have received a message from your child’s school with specifics regarding the release time. Schools are closed on Monday, January 16, 2023 for students and staff in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Feedback Wanted from Families

In my 20+ years in education, I’ve learned that families want schools to be a safe place to learn every day and develop friendships. I will be hosting discussions at each school over the next several weeks to hear directly from parents and guardians about your students’ school experience. These meetings – “Cookies, Cocoa & Conversation” – will be informal and flexible. Building principals will participate in these important conversations. The first meeting will be at Hudson Memorial School on Wednesday, January 18 in the Media Center at 7pm.

Budget Committee Hearing Tonight – Hudson Community Center – 7pm

Last week I shared that the Hudson Budget Committee cut approximately $3.2 million from the budget that was approved by the Hudson School Board. A list of cuts has been identified and shared with the Hudson School Board. 

The Budget Committee will listen to public input tonight at its hearing. The hearing will also be broadcast live on HCTV. The Budget Committee will cast its final vote on the budget at the end of the hearing.

Homeland Security Walkthroughs

The NH Department of Homeland Security is scheduled to conduct walkthroughs of each of our buildings this month. District administrators and Hudson Fire and Police participated in walkthroughs at Nottingham West and Hudson Memorial this week. A written report will be issued for each school and shared. I appreciate everyone taking time to participate in these important walkthroughs. 

Enjoy the long weekend.
