  12/3/20 Good Morning and Happy Thursday! I realize that it’s not Friday yet, but there are a few important updates that need to be sent out prior to tomorrow.  The first is a reminder that tomorrow, 12/4/20 is a half day. Because it is a remote day, that means that instruction will run until 10:30. Following that time, teachers are scheduled with parent-teacher...
  11/25/20 Good Afternoon and Happy Thanksgiving from Hatfield Elementary School!  Please note that this update will not appear on the website until 11/30/20.  Despite a challenging year, we all have much to be thankful for. I, for one, am thankful to the community of Hatfield Elementary, who have been so welcoming and supportive despite these tumultuous times in...
  11/20/20 Good afternoon and happy Friday from Hatfield Elementary School!  I would like to start this week’s update with a shout-out to our teachers. I have been incredibly happy to see the monumental efforts they have made paying off. I have heard from many parents and community members about how impressed they have been with remote learning since we were pushed into...
  11/13/20 Good Afternoon and Happy Friday from Hatfield Elementary School.  It’s fitting that today is Friday the 13th after a wacky week.  As you know, we had to pivot to remote learning for Thursday, 11/12 and Friday, 11/15. As stated last night at the School Committee meeting, this was not due to in-school transmission, but rather due to an abundance of caution...
11/6/20 Good Afternoon and Happy Thursday from Hatfield Elementary,  Normally I send updates out on Friday, but since tomorrow is a P.D. day for staff, and there will be no school for students, I wanted to send it out today. Also, a reminder that next Wednesday, 11/11/20 is Veterans Day and there will be no school.  Tomorrow night is the Spooktacular, put on by our PTA! A...
10/30/20 Good Afternoon. Happy Friday and Happy Halloween from Hatfield Elementary School!  It was so great to see so many of our students and staff in costume and having fun this week! It is always nice, but seems especially sweet this year.  The Spooktacular for this evening has been postponed for one week for November 6th. The PTA emailed everyone who had tickets...
  10/23/20 Good Afternoon and Happy Friday!  I’d like to welcome everybody to this year’s “Open House.” As with much this year, it is different. However the website contains videos from your kids’ teachers and important links to community support organizations and to district guiding documents for the year. The open house can be found by clicking the following link, or by...
  10/16/20 Good Afternoon and Happy Friday from Hatfield Elementary School!  I hope everyone was able to enjoy a long weekend last weekend, and to spend some time outside this week in the beautiful fall weather!  I want to thank parents, guardians and community members who continue to provide feedback about their experience with the hybrid model as we continue to...
  10/9/20 Good Afternoon and Happy Friday!  In yet another instance of flexibly adapting to changing situations, we were surprised to find out yesterday that, though the power was on, the internet went down shortly before 8:00 in the morning. I am incredibly proud of the students and the staff for their flexibility and “roll-with-it” attitude. Perseverance was on display in...
10/2/20 Good Afternoon and happy Friday from Hatfield Elementary School,  What a week! It was so very nice to see students from cohorts A and B in person this week, and to begin our hybrid model in earnest. We are looking forward to continuing to work with our students and families to ensure that the model is tweaked and instruction is modified to serve all of our students’ needs....
