From Principal Len Phelan - Regarding French classes

Dear HMS Parent or Guardian:

I am writing to update you about the extended absence of our French teacher, Ms. Kimberly Chase. Unfortunately Ms. Chase has been out of school on leave for several weeks and therefore unable to meet with her students and classes. We currently are seeking a substitute teacher who is fluent in French and can continue to provide ínstruction to students so they do not miss out on the learning opportunities normally offered in this class. This has proven to be a difficult task, þut we are continuing our search. ln the meantime students have been working on building their knowledge of the French language through the online platform Duolingo and by working on various assignments with a daily substitute teacher.

While we know that this situation is not optimal, we are doing the best we can to identify a skilled teacher of French who is able to work with Ms. Chase's classes during her absence. ln the meantime please be assured that we are doing all we can to keep the learning going in our French class until Ms. Chase returns to school.

Thank you for your understanding.
Leonard H. Phelan
