Mary Hogan School ready for 2016-2017 school year
MIDDLEBURY — Mary Hogan Principal Thomas Buzzell and Assistant Principal Steven Lindemann welcome Mary Hogan students and parents to the 2016-2017 school year. As the new school year approaches, the Mary Hogan staff is busy preparing for opening day on Aug. 31.
The traditional “Muffins at Mary Hogan” will be held in the school gymnasium from 7:50-9 a.m. on the first day of school, Aug. 31. Parents and guardians are invited to bring their children to their classrooms on the first day and then to stop in the gymnasium to spend a few minutes visiting with other families, board members and members of the school and district staff. If you are a veteran Mary Hogan parent, please come and welcome new Mary Hogan families.
If you are new to our school, please come and meet a great group of parents. Mary Hogan School opens each school day at 7:50 a.m. Breakfast is available to students from 7:50-8:10 a.m. Students are required to be settled into their classrooms for daily attendance by 8:10 a.m. Students arriving after 8:10 a.m. will be marked tardy. Bus routes are designed to drop off students by 8 a.m. Parents are welcome to drive or walk their child(ren) to school, but please keep in mind this is a busy time and drop off routines may take longer than normal.
At the end of the day, bus riders are dismissed at 2:50 p.m., followed by walkers and car riders at 2:55 p.m. We ask parents to stay with their vehicles when dropping off or picking up their child(ren).
Again this year, the Abbey Group will be the food service provider for Middlebury K-12 schools. The Abbey Group is a Vermont company committed to providing delicious, healthy, locally sourced foods for our school meals. Details about pricing and menus are being mailed home to parents at the end of August. Families new to Mary Hogan are encouraged to register their children prior to the first day of school. This enables the principals to make a thoughtful placement for each child. The Mary Hogan staff looks forward to working with you to make the 2016-2017 school year academically productive and enjoyable for your children.
Please contact the school office at 802-388-4421 to register or if you have any questions. Updated bus routes for all Middlebury elementary, middle school and high school students are printed in this issue as well as on the school website at www.maryhoganschool.org.
