Principal’s Message

Fare Well, Fifth Grade Hawks!

It is exciting and bittersweet to say goodbye to our fifth grade students. Most of the children have been at Hartley since kindergarten and we’ve enjoyed seeing them grow and learn. We love all of our students’ personalities and thank them for the gifts they’ve shared with us during their years at Hartley. Whether they attend Gamble, Murray or another school next year, our Hartley alums will always be welcome home at Hartley. Good luck, fifth graders! 

Food That’s In When school is out!

Students 18 years of age or younger may receive free, nutritious meals at Pedro Menendez High school (June 3rd-July 18th) or Otis Mason Elementary (June 10th– July 12th) or the Solomon Calhoun Center (June 3rd-July 19th). Please dial 211 (number will be active on May 15th) to inquire about the serving times or any additional locations.

School Visitation Update

This is just a reminder that anyone (parent, guardian, friend, neighbor, aunt, uncle) must have school access to attend an event at Hartley, have lunch with a student and/or attend an awards assembly. If you have not already done so, please complete the School Access Form. The process for approval may take up to 4 weeks, so please fill out the application sooner than later for any guests that would like to have school access. Once the application is approved, school access will be valid for three years.
