Principal Newsletter

Dear Families,


  • Thank you to families who’ve already completed and sent in the Free & Reduced Lunch Application.  Please note that even though meals will be free for all, it is very important for families to still complete the household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2022-2023 school year. You can view and complete the application here: Free & Reduced Lunch Household Application. We strongly encourage (but don’t require) ALL families to submit this form as it allows us to establish eligibility for P-EBT benefits and serve families most effectively. 

In addition, please consider applying for SNAP, the federal nutrition program that provides eligible residents with monthly financial assistance to purchase groceries. More SNAP information can be found at or by calling Project Bread’s FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333.

  • Our Book Fair will be held the week of September 19th and will be housed in/near our library on the second floor.  It will be open the evening of Open House, so be sure to stop by!

  • Open House is Thursday,  September 22nd from 5:00-6:00 pm. Families are asked to enter through the STAR/Gymnasium doors on the north side of the building.

  • Our PTA is hosting monthly Movie Nights!! Our first one will be Friday,  September 23rd from 6:00-8:00! Please scroll below to view the flyer.

  • From Nurse Jean: The District will be sending one iHealth CovidTest kit home in each student's backpack by Sept. 23.  For further info about opting-out and other Covid updates, please see this Nurse's Update Page.

  • In observance of our first half day, we are having our first Spirit Day!  Students and Staff can wear their Hatfield swag (t-shirts/sweatshirts with Hatfield logo) or any clothing that has purple on it.  This is not a hat day.  As always, this is voluntary, you do not have to participate if you don’t want to.  There will be more spirit days throughout the year.

  • Friday, September 23 is a half day with an 11:55 dismissal.  At this time there is NO aftercare being offered on early release days.

Have a great weekend!
