Principal's Message

Hello Hirsch families!
I am excited to welcome you back for the 2020-21 school year. Unfortunately, as you know, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is preventing us from holding in-person learning for (at least) the first quarter. Please trust that your Hirsch faculty and staff are working hard to ensure that we have minimal loss of learning during these difficult times. 
The first day of school will be Tuesday, September 8th 2020. We will begin with virtual sessions at 9AM, and you should expect to be in your different sessions every day through 4:01PM, just like on a regular school day. More information has been sent to you via email, including what to do if you need access to a chromebook or internet service.  
The pandemic also prevents us from hosting an in-person registration and orientation. This means that registration forms will have to be completed electronically. The forms will be sent to you via email and are available on this website. Our hope is that you can print them, fill them out, and then scan them back to us. 
If you do not have access to a scanner, then you may drop them off at the school during regular business hours  (Monday through Friday 9:00AM to 4:00PM). We are closed on Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day. Please note that you will not be permitted to come into the building due to COVID-19 restrictions; the window is for drop-off only. 
If you do not have access to a printer, the forms will also be available for pick-up during the same time frames noted above. You may take the forms with you and bring them back once completed.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you soon!
