Hiawatha Elementary School

Principal's Message

September 4, 2018 

Dear Student and Parent/Guardian: 

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! We hope you had a healthy and relaxing summer. We have been busy preparing for the new school year and are excited to begin. 

Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 5th is the first day of school. The school hours are 9:15 am to 3:15 pm. The cafeteria will be serving lunch on the first day. 

If your child is a bus student, please have him/her at the bus stop approximately thirty minutes before the scheduled school time for the first few days of school. You will come to know the regular time of the bus arrival and may make adjustments accordingly. 

Safety starts on the first day of school. For walkers driven to school by car, follow the traffic signs and use the appropriate entrance to our school. Bus riders should use the same bus stop to and from school and follow the bus procedures. 

Communication with the school, good work habits, and punctual attendance are ingredients for a winning school year. 

Your child's teacher and I are looking forward to working with you towards this goal. 
Please visit our website for updates, calendars, and PTA events on a weekly basis:

You can also sign up for school and classroom Remind texts and follow us on Twitter @Hiawathahuskies & @sachemschhools

Best wishes for a successful and healthy school year.
