As you may remember in last year’s budget, we were able to secure another School Resource Officer. Officer Kathy Poirier was selected for this position. She is committed to having a strong presence in the elementary schools. You may see her at arrival and dismissal supporting safe arrival and dismissal routines and monitoring our parking restrictions. She will also attend All-School Meetings and stop in for lunches and recesses in order to get to know the students and staff. In the spring she teaches the PRIDE Program to our fifth graders.
I will have a chance to introduce her to the students at our next All-School Meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, September 26th. She may even be able to attend our Back to School Night, scheduled for that same evening.
Please join me in welcoming Officer Poirier to the Hunnewell Team!
