Weekly Message from the Superintendent

Dear Hadley Families,
I hope you had a pleasant week.~
Senior, Caitlin Lewis, has been selected as the recipient of the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents Award for Academic Excellence. Students, Khristopher Olson and Allison Jenks, have been selected as recipients of the New England School Development Council's Student Learning Award. These students will be presented with their awards at the regularly scheduled school committee meeting on~Monday, October 24th at 5:30 pm. I would like to personally congratulate all of them on their notable achievements.
There will be a middle school Halloween dance on~Friday, October 28th~from~7-9 pm~in the cafe.
Sunday, October 23rd~from 9-2, HA students traveling to Nicaragua for a service learning trip will have a tag sale. If you have items you would like to donate, the students and faculty will be setting up at~8 am. If you would like to purchase a table to sell your own items the cost is $20. Please consider coming by and supporting our students who are raising money so they can help support others.

The students at HES continue to show off their problem solving and collaboration skills through Breakout Edu learning activities. This week 5C set a new record for Breakout Edu- breaking out of The Attack of the Locks, a Star Wars theme, in 17 minutes, eclipsing 5B's time of 24 minutes from last week. (Timers are set for 45 min). They used close reading skills, roman numerals, read music notes on sheet music, cooperated, collaborated, and creatively interpreted clues to win a session of outdoor games. Next week brings 4W vs 4G in a digital Breakout Edu session on National Parks. 3P will be doing their first Breakout~on Tuesday. 5D will be learning to use Google Classroom this coming week.
Target and Walmart deserve a special thanks for providing our district with gift cards to purchase Breakout Edu supplies.~

Health Updates
We have been notified by our district Public Health Nurse that there have been a high number of confirmed cases of hand, food and mouth disease (HFMD) in communities surrounding Hadley.~~HFMD is common in young children but can also be spread to older children and adults.~~HFDM usually presents with a rash on feet and hands and other body parts, painful mouth sores, and fever.~~Most cases are not serious and complications are rare but it can be painful and symptoms usually last 7 – 10 days.~~HFMD is contagious and spreads though close contact (such as sharing utensils, hugging, kissing), sneezing and coughing, contact with blister fluid and touching objects that have the virus on them.~~There is no specific treatment for HFMD but increasing fluids to avoid dehydration can be important and over-the-counter pain relievers can be helpful.
We encourages the following~precautions:
-~~~~~~~hand washing with soap and warm water for 20 seconds, especially prior to cafeteria time
-~~~~~~~avoiding touching mouth, eyes, and nose with unwashed hands
-~~~~~~~reminding students to not share utensils and water bottles
-~~~~~~~wiping down common/shared classroom spaces each day.
These are good practices at all times!~
For more detailed information see:
If you need additional sani-wipes or have questions about HFMD, please see your school nurse.
