Hutch Happenings

September 14, 2018


Upcoming Events


Open House

 Please join us on Thursday, September 20th for our annual Open House at Anne Hutchinson School!

 Here is the schedule for the evening:

  •  6:15 PTA Expo (gymnasium): You will have an opportunity to join the PTA/SEPTA, purchase AHS spirit wear, sign up for grade level activities, and more!
  • 7:00 Principal’s Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year (auditorium)
  • 7:20 - 7:50 Classroom Visits Session I (classrooms)
  • 7:50 - 8:20 Classroom Visits Session II (classrooms)

 At each session, the classroom teacher will present an overview of the curriculum for the grade level, discuss expectations for school work, homework, attendance, behavior, and respond to questions from parents.

 Two classroom sessions are provided so that parents with two children in the school may visit both classrooms, as well as to provide an opportunity for parents to meet with special subject area teachers (special education, reading, speech, music, art, physical education and library). 

 Please know that Open House is not the time to discuss individual issues. Kindly make an appointment with the teacher to speak privately at another time.

Important Reminders

 ARRIVAL PROCEDURES – Thank you for following our procedures at arrival!

 LATE ARRIVAL - If your child arrives late, after 8:23 am, he or she must get a late pass from the front desk before going to their classroom.

 DISMISSAL PROCEDURES – If you are picking your child up by car, please be sure to stay in your vehicle in the line of cars or park off-campus. It is very important that parents do not leave their vehicle in the traffic line as traffic builds very rapidly.

 CHANGE IN DISMISSAL ROUTINE – If your child must leave early for any reason, we need a note written to the teacher’s attention the morning of the change in dismissal. It must be dated and signed. Email or voicemail will not be accepted as a change of dismissal routine notification.

 ATTENDANCE - Out of concern for your children, please call (914)793-6130 ext. 5111 EVERY time your child is not in attendance. You will reach a recording asking you to leave the first and last name of your child, date, class and reason for absence. If a student is absent without a parent calling, Mrs. Moccia will call the family. The absence must be followed by a note upon return to school indicating why your child was absent. We hope to insure the health and welfare of all children with these increased communications and precautions
