Welcome Back Haigh Owls! ~ A Letter from Mrs. McIngvale

Hello Haigh Parents, Students and Community!

I hope that this email finds you and your family well and that you have had many opportunities to make some great memories over summer break! I know that the entire Haigh staff is excited to welcome all of our Owls back to the building. 

While I know that there are some changes that this new school year may bring, I am confident that the whole Haigh community will ensure that we are always working as a team to best support our students.  With that being said, I cannot begin to express how excited I am to continue the great work that we started last year and to continue supporting our staff, students, parents and community. 

For your planning purposes, Open House will be held on Friday, August 25th from 1:30-3:00 pm. Please stop by, visit your classroom and meet your teacher during this time. We also kindly ask that if you are sending in school/classroom supplies with your child(ren), that you drop them off during your Open House visit. We will also have some snack vendors in our “Haigh Backyard” throughout the afternoon so that we can all enjoy each other’s company! 

Below are a few important reminders as we get ready to welcome students back to the building:

Finally, as you may have heard, the building will be undergoing some major construction over the course of the school year. This construction is exciting and needed and will give us 6 new classrooms, a new cafeteria and serving line as well as some additional student bathrooms and office spaces. We are so excited! However, we know that the construction is going to bring with it some major changes in our daily operations, which will require patience and understanding from the entire Haigh community as we make some necessary updates to ensure everyone’s safety.

I am looking forward to a great start to the year! 

Best Regards,

Mrs. Erin McIngvale
