Message From The Principal 5-22-20 - Ms. Cameron
Dear Hegarty Family,
As the year is quickly coming to an end, I cannot believe Memorial Day is upon us. As the weekend is approaching, let us not forget about our veterans. Memorial Day is a time to remember those who died while serving our country. I want to thank all of the veterans in our community as well as the men and women who are currently on active duty, serving our country.
Beginning the week of June 1st, we will begin the delivery of each student’s locker contents/ personal belongings. As we drop-off personal belongings, we will also pick-up District property that the students are NOT currently using for distance learning; i.e. classroom or library books and textbooks.
Please note, however, that we will not deliver or pick-up from students who are currently using Districtowned Chromebooks and/or instruments, on loan for distance learning, until after school has officially ended for students on June 15th. Prior to the delivery/pick-up, each family will receive a phone call from a District representative with specific delivery/pick-up instructions and an estimated time for delivery/pick-up (a two-hour window).
I would also like to highlight some important dates and events to celebrate the class of 2020. Virtual graduation ceremonies have been planned for grades pre-k, kindergarten and grade four students. We will be celebrating their accomplishments during prerecorded virtual ceremonies. I have outlined some important dates below:
- June 12, 2020. Kindergarten Virtual End of Year Celebration 9:30 AM
- June 15, 2020 Grade 4 Virtual Moving Up Ceremony 9:30 AM
- June 15, 2020 Pre-K Virtual Stepping Up Ceremony 11:30 AM
- June 15, 2020 Last Day of School for all Pre-k through Grade four students. The parent portal will also be open for retrieval of student report cards.
For each event, parents will be receiving a program with students’ names. A link will be posted on the Island Park website as well as the Francis X. Hegarty webpage during the above listed times for your convenience. I am so proud of all the children especially for their diligence and excellent work habits during the school closure. Thank you to all of the families who have supported and assisted the children during distance learning.
I wish everyone a healthy and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
We are Hegarty Strong!
