The West Springfield Pyramid Principals (West Springfield HS, Irving MS, West Springfield ES, Cardinal Forest ES, Hunt Valley ES, Orange Hunt ES, Rolling Valley ES, Keene Mill ES and Sangster ES) will host a virtual community chat on Tuesday, June 30th from 7pm-8pm on Blackboard Collaborate. The purpose of this discussion is to provide a space and platform for our community members to share openly and candidly about the strengths and needs of our community schools as we work to create a welcoming environment that is supportive of all students and families. Our hope is to continue to grow our partnership with you and better address the needs and concerns of our students and families in the West Springfield Pyramid.
Please look for a link to the virtual community chat which will be sent on Monday, June 29th. We look forward to this opportunity to come listen, learn, and hear from one another.

Math and Language Arts Workbooks: June 29th-July 31st

These workbooks are designed to practice skills previously learned with minimal parent support. The workbook will align with your child’s current grade level, not their rising grade level. (i.e 2019-2020 My child was a 4th grader. They will receive the 4th-grade workbooks.) To opt-out of these summer learning workbooks, please click the following link. Current opt-out link

If you are moving and will not be with Orange Hunt ES in the 2020-2021 school year, please contact Lesley Akofio-Hite, our registrar, at email@example.com.Student Registration
Schools remain closed to families; however, if you have a rising kindergartner or other new student to register, we would like to do a preliminary registration now. If you know of any families that would be new to Orange Hunt (that have rising kindergartners or students in grades 1-6), please forward this information to them. Early registration for next year is important as it supports the number of teachers for which we are staffed.
To register your child for school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Registration” in the subject line. If you are able to fill out the registration packet online, save it to your device, and attach it to the email to send back to us, that is the preferred option. If you are not able to do that, please let us know when you might be available for a phone interview.
After we receive your email, we will reach out with any additional questions. If you have any questions or concerns about registration, please contact Lesley Akofio-Hite, our registrar, at email@example.com.Yearbooks
We are still waiting for information from Lifetouch to find out when the Yearbooks will be made available and how they will be distributed to our families. We will update you all when we learn more.Important Dates:
August 25: First day of school
