Mary Hogan Elementary School faculty and staff are preparing for the return of students on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
The traditional Muffins at Mary Hogan will be offered in the school gymnasium from 8-9 a.m. on the first day of school.
Parents and guardians are invited to bring children to school on the first day and then stop in the gymnasium to spend a few minutes visiting with families of other children in their childs classroom, MESA officers, members of the school and district staff, and ID4 School Board members.
In addition to greeting new youngsters and their families, Barbara A. Bourne, principal, and Thomas E. Buzzell, associate principal, said they will welcome Annie Bolduc and Deb Devaney who have accepted positions as Grade 5 teachers as well as Sharon Schildkamp who is the new parent liaison.
As a reminder, classes begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. Bus routes have been designed so that all buses will arrive at Mary Hogan by 8:15. Parents driving or walking youngsters to school should plan to arrive between 8 and 8:15 a.m. This will allow youngsters time to deal with the morning routine prior to the start of the instructional day. Breakfast will be served until 8:15. Youngsters arriving after 8:15 will be unable to participate in the breakfast program. At the end of the day bus riders will be dismissed beginning at 2:45 and all others will be dismissed at approximately. 2:55 p.m.
New families to Middlebury and East Middlebury should register their children prior to the first day of school. This enables teachers to plan appropriately for new students. Please contact the school office at 388-4421 to register.
Bus routes for all Middlebury elementary, middle school and high school students are available from the school. Please call Mary Hogan School at 388-4421 if you have any questions.
