What's Up at HRCSD

Superintendent's Message

  • Dan Goldman

    June 13, 2016 


    Good afternoon HRCSD Educators,

    As we start our last week with students, I want to thank you for another great year in our school district. My own kids woke up this morning yelling, “Last Late Start!” I don’t know why not having “late starts” in the summertime is cause for celebration… but they are PUMPED!


    We all know that maximizing each student’s academic and social progress is what we’re all about. Hopefully you’re already taking a moment to reflect upon, and celebrate, your students and the growth they’ve made over the course of this school year. Some have made miraculous growth with seemingly little effort, while others have worked overtime to achieve incremental gains - most lie somewhere in between. Regardless, I’m sure that you have made a positive difference in your student’s lives over the course of the school year.
