Hawthorne Public Schools January 2013 Washington School This newsletter is designed to allow a “snapshot access” to activities and important district initiatives. By design each section will be brief and to the point, thus allowing parents and residents ease of access. The Superintendent’s comments will focus on district initiatives. Hawthorne Public Schools has implemented a nut free regulation for all of our pre-school and elementary facilities. Any foods containing peanuts and tree nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts etc.) will not be permitted in our pre-K through grade 5 schools. All existing protocols to minimize potential exposure by children allergic to peanuts and tree nut products will remain in effect. Because of the age and the level of awareness for middle school and high school students, there will be a voluntary ban on peanuts and tree nut products in the middle school and high school. Students in Lincoln Middle school and Hawthorne High School are being asked whenever possible to avoid all foods containing peanuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, etc. Please note that the ban on peanut and tree nut products is in effect for all school and non-school activities conducted on our premises. Your understanding is critically important to our joint goal to ensure the safety of our children at all times. These regulations will be put into effect on Monday, February 4, 2013, in all six public school facilities. On behalf of the children with these allergies and their families, thank you for your anticipated cooperation. Board of Education As a part of our continuing effort to improve the communication between the community and the schools, I am pleased to introduce the first edition of the Hawthorne Public Schools Enewsletter. We believe that it is time to recognize and celebrate the many successes of our students and faculty and invite you to join us in doing so. This periodical will be published several times per year and will highlight various happenings around the district. Abigail Goff Public Relations Chairperson “The Hawthorne Board of Education’s search for a new superintendent is well underway. I’m pleased to report that board trustees have diligently been reading through all of the applications, and are ready to finalize their top candidates. In the next few weeks, the full board will conduct the interview process with the hopes that a new superintendent will be hired to start in the district on July 1st.” Michele Hyams BOE President
