Hoosic Valley Crowns a New Scoring Leader

January 26, 2015 - Congratulations to John Rooney as he claims the title of All-Time Scoring Leader for Hoosic Valley. John surpassed the record of 1,516 points set by Pat Lanoue in 2008. John broke the record in the win over Cambridge last week, with plenty of games left in the season there's no telling how high the new scoring title will be.

Digital Resources for Parents

January 14, 2015 - The Internet is a great tool that we use more and more everyday. Just like we teach our kids to cross the street safely we need to teach best practices for navigating the world wide web. Stay Safe Online has valuable information for parents related to teaching their children to become responsible digital citizens along with handling cyber bullying and keeping your identity safe.


Morning Drop Off for Elementary Students

January 13, 2015 - We have a designated route for student drop off at the elementary school. Parents should drive around the short loop between the tennis courts and the front playground and drop students off at the end of the sidewalk. There are signs indicating student drop off. We ask that all parents who are dropping off students use this route.  We have a faculty member assigned to that area assuring the safety off your child along with the smooth flow of traffic as you exit and buses enter.

Recently, there have been a number of people who have driven into the staff parking lot and dropped off their children at a spot which requires students to cross in front of buses entering the parking lot.  This is a less safe route where we do not have anyone assigned at the crosswalk.

For your child’s safety, and to assure the most orderly and safe passage of everyone, we ask that when you are dropping off your child, please follow the signs to drop off your child at the end of the sidewalk, where they will not have to cross traffic to enter the school.


Talent Show to Hit the Stage May 1st

January 8, 2015 - Sorry for another date change but due to all our busy schedules we need to change the date to Friday, May 1st. If you have already dropped off your permission slip, we will hold it for you, not a problem at all! For those talented HV young folks who have yet to submit your slip...you'll have plenty of time when the show gets closer. More information will be coming in March...until then...stay warm!
