Strategic Planning: Your Survey Participation Needed By April 6

We are very thoughtful regarding the use of your time. Especially when asking you to complete surveys. As we continue to gather information that will be used to help develop our multi-year strategic plan for the Hudson Falls School District. A survey for all parents and guardians is now open through Thursday, April 6.  A link has been emailed to all parents.

  • It will only take 10 minutes to complete;
  • It will gather your thoughts related to the school experience we provide your student;

Our best plans are formed when we hear back from as many of you as possible. Your survey responses will be incorporated with those received from our faculty, staff, students, administrators, and all employees to create priorities for our overall strategic plan.

Together with input from the entire school community we can make the Hudson Falls Schools the best it can be!

Building Trusting Relationships

Earlier this week you received a message from me regarding the school shooting in Nashville. While I could reiterate the safety protocols and measures we have in place in HFCSD, and continue to evaluate and improve, I want to focus on something equally as important – building trusting relationships. Vital to all our well-being is our collective, ongoing efforts to support students. Have students know we are trusting adults they can turn to for support. Please help us in encouraging your student to speak with trusted adults at school as well at home. Together, we build a safe community.

Theater on a Stage

Last evening we were proud to see many of our Tigers on stage performing a variety of songs from Broadway musicals. Thank you to the Music Department for putting this together in the absence of the auditorium this spring. Also a thank you to The Strand Theater for hosting and providing a special stage for our students. Stay tuned next week for more highlights of the performance.
