A Message from Interim Executive Director, Alisa Kopacz

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! The beginning of every school year comes with renewed excitement for all that lies ahead and this year is no different. Our staff has spent the summer preparing for an enriching educational program for our students. We are ready to welcome everyone on Thursday, September 1st, 2022 to a new school year filled with opportunities for connections and experiences to foster social, emotional and academic growth.

HPS prides itself on the connection among our parents, students and staff to create and maintain a school community where everyone feels visible, valued, and respected.  To facilitate our connection and to keep everyone informed of all HPS has to offer, we have created this communications hub, HPS Connect, where you can access important school information such as links to Realtime Parent Portal, school forms, our latest emails, upcoming events, newsletters, and other information pertinent to your child’s school experience.

We look forward to seeing you on campus at our Back to School Night on Thursday, September 22, from 7-9 PM.  If you ever have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call. We genuinely believe that we are best when working together. As Helen Keller famously said, “alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” Here’s to a year of doing “so much” together!
