    ZOOM into the School Year with Dr. Green ZOOM

    stop  Hello Hand Hornet families! We will be hosting the 5 additional student days that were approved by the state legislature called LEAP days Aug. 24, Aug. 25, Aug. 26, and Aug. 28, 8:45 am – 1:00 daily, for students who will be in K - 8th grade for the 2020-2021 school year. We have developed a schedule for all students to be invited at least one day during the five days. Students will review school expectations, take the universal screening assessment and receive DLE device/online textbook access information. Please respond to this survey by Friday, August 14 5:00 p.m. so we can plan a very engaging day for your child.

    Message from Dr. Patrice T. Green, principal

    Words cannot express my gratitude for the communication, collaboration, kindness and support you demonstrated on our e-learning journey. Thank You parents for being your child’s first teacher and for working with us as we navigated our way through our new normal. We are aware, the last part of school year, 2019-2020, was challenging, as you also addressed the Covid-19 Pandemic, and the overall safety of your family.  

    However, together, we made it!  

    For all our students, we wish the very best in the coming school year 2020-21, and look forward to serving our newest 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Hand.

    Thank you so much and have a well-deserved summer break.

    Dr. Patrice T. Green
