For many years, improvements and repairs to our school buildings have not been initiated due to tight funding. Now the situation for a few buildings has reached a critical stage. On Thursday, the School Committee will discuss options for funding long-delayed, much-required physical improvements. Please attend to hear what we face and how we might fund such repairs.

There are currently 16.8 full-time equivalent positions throughout the district that may be cut from the school budget. Come hear the latest developments with the FY10 budget and these proposed reductions.

Have you heard? Last week HWRHS principal Bob Krol and assistant principal Phil Conrad reported on the latest findings from NEASC — the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. While NEASC was impressed with many aspects of our High School’s curriculum, their concerns were multiple. We are on Warning status right now. Without action, we are on our way to Probation.
