Message from Ms. Bray
Congratulations Hampton Cove families on a great first week of school!  Our students are beginning to establish routines and are on their way to a fantastic year of learning. Thank you for sharing your children with us.  
Beginning Monday, August 8th the school doors will remain closed until 7:30 am at which time faculty and staff will be on duty.  We request you do not drop off students until 7:30 as they will not be supervised.  Safety is our first and foremost concern. There are options in our community for before school care should you require that service. 
We invite you to attend our Digital Citizenship and Technology Navigation sessions Monday, August 8th in our ETA classroom.  These sessions will begin at 8:15 and will be led by Ms. Debbie Riser.  
We welcome you this Tuesday, August 9th for our 1st - 5th grade Parent Orientation.  There will be two options: 4:30 or 5:30.  Please select the option best for your family.  
We look forward to another great week of learning!
