Dear HPS Family:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! The summer break passed by quickly, but I hope that you were able to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

The HPS teachers have returned full-time to their classrooms, preparing to welcome their students on Monday morning, August 26, 2019.  Every angle of research, creativity and goal-oriented strategy that contributes to developing academic lesson plans is now in full gear -- as teachers create an exciting year of learning for your child (ren).

In addition, child nutrition/cafeteria employees, bus drivers, maintenance, office staff, teacher assistants, coaches, school resource officers, nurses, social workers, administrators—every employee, and even our volunteers – are all collaborating in their preparation to meet the needs of every child.

Be sure to check with your child’s school (the school website or call the school) to secure the accurate start and finish time for the school day as we have new updates for this school year. You can also check on the HPS website (www.hickoryschools.net) or the Facebook page for Hickory Public Schools. Bus schedules will soon be posted on the district website, as well.  

And if you haven’t marked your calendar as yet, be sure to check your school’s schedule for open house, orientation, and Sneak Peeks. Each school has something planned for this week, prior to the start of school. Many of your questions will be answered during these events.

We are thrilled to have your family as a part of our big family here at Hickory Public Schools. Providing excellence in education while gaining an understanding of the needs of each child -- will always be the “why” of what we do.

Thank you for your support of Hickory Public Schools. We invite you to serve as a volunteer and become actively engaged in the educational journey of your child.


Robbie Adell, Ed.D
