    Hello Jaguar Families,

    Spring has officially arrived and the weather was absolutely perfect to get Spring off to a great start.  This past week, there was a great deal of discussion about the return to school survey and newly released in-person learning calendar passed by the school committee. I have attached it so please read it over carefully to minimize any confusion or concerns you may have. The district will start the return to in person learning on the week of 4/5/21.  We will provide more information over the coming weeks. 

    We are hard at work trying to look at the best ways we can minimize classroom interruptions and maximize on time learning.  There’s a great deal of moving parts we need to iron out these next few weeks.  On top of examining classrooms and staffing, we need to take a look at the drop off and pick up procedure, duty schedules, lunches and many little nuances that make the building run so smoothly. I would like to ask for your patience over the next few weeks in order to make Silver Hill as efficient as it always is.  With that being said, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any question or suggestions you may have.   

    Marks close:

    Just a reminder about grades.  Marks will close on 3/25 so make sure you have your cherubs complete any outstanding assignments that have not been completed or “submitted” to their teachers…

    A very special ‘Shout Out’ to our past and upcoming Birthdays:

    3/14 Kolby B., Devyn G., Alondra P.
    3/15 Jisela E., Josue V, Isabella S., Adriana A
    3/17 Robert W, Skye W, Avery A
    3/18 Cameron G.
    3/19 Stephanie B., Jasmine O, Zaylee M., Isabella G

    Afternoon Jaguar Families,

    I hope you had a great weekend and start to the week. It looks like just about everyone was able to “spring ahead” this past weekend.  With Spring just around the corner and St. Patrick’s day tomorrow, I have added a few reminders you all should take a look at.  

    In Person Survey

    If you haven’t already, please take min to read and fill out this survey about In Person learning coming up next month.  Below are the surveys in everyone’s respective languages. Just click on the link and complete them by tomorrow, 3/17/21.  

    English Survey

    Spanish Survey

    Arabic Survey

    Portuguese Survey

    Haitian Survey

    Travel Restrictions

    As we start planning for a full in-person learning model, we would like to ask our families to help stop the spread of COVID-19 so this model is as successful as possible. We would like to remind families of the current travel restrictions:

    Please remember that If you travel overnight outside of Massachusetts, effective August 1, 2020, all visitors and returning residents entering Massachusetts are required to do the following: 

    1. Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form https://www.mass.gov/forms/massachusetts-travel-form.
    2. Quarantine for 10 days (HPS 14 days) OR produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72 hours prior to your return to Massachusetts  

    For the safety of our school community, we implore you to adhere to this guidance. If your student is unable or unwilling to test, please let your school know that your child will be moving to fully remote learning for the two weeks following the return from your trip.  

    Thank you all for your continued support.

    Kindness Rocks

    Spring is just around the corner and we are noticing our “Kindness Rocks” rock garden needs a little freshening up. If you are able to paint a rock or two with a kind word or a bit of inspiration, this will add a bit more life to the “Kindness” Rock garden in front of our building.  Feel free to swing on by and take a peek for some clever ideas. 

    Here is the link to Ms. Wilman’s “Kindness Rocks” ideas

    Jaguar Families,

    March is here.  It is officially the longest month of the school year. We are so excited the days are getting longer and spring time is right around the corner. This past week was a great success with our “read across america week”. Each day of the week was something special here at school. For example, Tuesday was hat and hundredth day, you should have seen the amazing hats and old people we had walking around. On Friday, staff and students’ costumes were amazing as many of the students dressed up as their favorite character.  

    Also, don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead next Saturday night.  

    Kindness Rocks

    Spring is just around the corner and we are noticing our “Kindness Rocks” rock garden needs a little freshening up. If you are able to paint a rock or two with a kind word or a bit of inspiration, this will add a bit more life to the “Kindness” Rock garden in front of our building.  Feel free to swing on by and take a peek for some clever ideas. 

    Thirsty students…

    Friendly reminder- Please have your child bring in a refillable container / bottle for water.  We do have water bottle refill stations they can use throughout the day to refill their bottles.  A hydrated student is a happy student.

    Picture Retake Reminder…

    The picture retakes will be conducted on March 9th for Cohort A and C from 9:30-10:30 with 10:30-12 for RLA.  March 11th from 9:30-10:30 for Cohort B and C along with another 10:30-12:00 session for any RLA students unable to make it on Tuesday.  Parents must order online prior to the retake day and provide a printout of the confirmation number. If your child is doing a ‘retake’, please make sure they bring the original photo to return to the photographer. 

    For the RLA students, please drive up to the front of the school and a staff member will meet you at the front door. Your child will be brought back out to you directly after pictures are taken.

    Jaguar Families,

    I hope it wasn’t too much to get back in the swing of things after vacation week. It was a little tricky for me but I managed.  This month is our long stretch of schooling (no vacations and no days off).  With that being said, we will be conducting a few different “theme” weeks.  This coming week is Read Across America Week and Spirit week will follow.   

    Read Across America

    This coming week (3/1 – 3/5) Silver Hill will be celebrating Read Across America Week.  We will be commemorating this with a different theme each day.  They are: “Monday-Be Influential day, Tuesday-Hat day/100th day, Wednesday-Cozy Up Author Study day, Thursday-Celebrate Diversity day and Friday-Book Character day.  

    Picture retake information

    The picture retakes will be conducted on March 9th for Cohort A and C from 9:30-10:30 with 10:30-12 for RLA.  March 11th from 9:30-10:30 for Cohort B and C along with another 10:30-12:00 session for any RLA students unable to make it on Tuesday.  Parents must order online prior to the retake day and provide a printout of the confirmation number. If your child is doing a ‘retake’, please make sure they bring the original photo to return to the photographer. 

    For the RLA students, please drive up to the front of the school and a staff member will meet you at the front door. Your child will be brought back out to you directly after pictures are taken.

    Parent Coach

    Caitlin Silva, parent coach from Beacon Parent Coaching, is going to be putting on workshops geared to specific topics you have requested. She is currently generating a schedule for the workshops to be held in a 4 part series. Once the dates and times have been confirmed, she will be reaching out directly to those of you that have filled out the survey last month. 

    Technology

    Just a friendly reminder about the Haverhill Public School issued Chromebooks and Ipads. Lately, there are students/families who are using school technology as if they were their own personal devices. These technologically educational tools are for school use only.  Please use your parental judgement when your son or daughter are on line.  We have been having many students going onto different websites other than assigned school work or assignments during the school day.  Please keep in mind, if needed, staff and Admin can log in at any time to monitor where and what sites students are logging into.  Thank you for your help with this. 

    A very special ‘Shout Out’ to our upcoming Birthdays:

    3/1: Jadiel S.M
    3/4: Ryan M., Kalia P, Israel R
    3/5: Helloisa B.S

    Thanks so much and I hope you have a great week!
