Talking HF Tigers 3/1

I hope you all had an enjoyable Mid-Winter Recess and are feeling refreshed as we begin the month of March! A reminder that there will be no classes next Friday, March 8 for a Superintendent conference day.

As you know, we have been experiencing issues with our Internet and canceled classes this past Thursday. Our school district has worked diligently to repair these services to our school and make accommodations in the meantime. Please continue to check your emails for updates on this. Thank you to our IT Department who have been hard at work to fix the issues with the internet. Thank you to our teachers and staff who have put in the time to adjust their lesson plans to fit the unexpected issues with our technology.

Register for Universal Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten

It is time to register for UPK and Kindergarten! Potential students must be residents of Hudson Falls. To apply for Kindergarten, your student must turn 5 on or before December 1, 2024. To apply for UPK, your student must turn 4 on or before December 1, 2024. Registration packets must be in by April 1, 2024. Please call (518) 681-4500 to register your student. Once you have registered your student, you will receive a letter with an appointment date and time in May to bring your student in for a round-up screening with your completed registration packet.

*If your child already attends our UPK program you DO NOT need to register them for Kindergarten.
