Superintendent's Message - June 26, 2014
Dear Community Members:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Red Hook school community for another great year of teaching and learning. As we all know, students are most successful when all the stakeholders (i.e., students, parents, staff, and community members) are pulling in the same direction. I thank everyone for your continued support. Red Hook is certainly a special place. I have taken to telling people that it is always sunny in Red Hook!  

Now that the school year has ended, we begin the work of installing a wireless network infrastructure and a new telephone system, deploying numerous new security cameras, and completing pre-construction for a boiler replacement at Mill Road. These projects were approved by the voters in May of 2013. I look forward to sharing more about the "what we did on our summer vacation" projects in September.

My best wishes for a safe and healthy summer.
