Caleb Dustin Hunking bears a close relationship to Haverhill’s most historical character, being a direct descendant of Hannah Duston. Born in Hill, New Hampshire February 24, 1805, he attended Franklin Academy, Franklin, New Hampshire for a short time after which teaching occupied several years of his early life. Removing to Haverhill he became one of the best known and esteemed shoe manufacturers in this City. In 1855 he became the first man from Haverhill to sit on the Governors Council and in 1857 served in the State Senate. Later he was “Justice of the Peace and Quorum for all of the Counties of the Commonwealth.” In 1847 he built a home at the corner of Merrimack and How Streets where the Masonic Temple now is. When the Business Section expanded from Water Street to Merrimack Street in 1871 the house was moved to Main Street. In 1923 it was sold to the American Legion for use as a home. Expanding his shoe business he built “the Granite Front” a business block at 68-84 Merrimack Street where he occupied the upper floors, renting the street floor to R. H. Macy who later sold his business here and moved to New York where he established and built up the spectacularly successful department store bearing the name of “Macy’s.” A substantial amount of capitol is said to have been supplied by his friend Caleb Hunking.…..

  • A Message from the Superintendent

     

    10/15/2019

    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    The safety and security of our students is of the utmost importance. To that end, we continuously review our policies and practices to ensure that recent research and data support the policies we employ. The US Department of Education, International Association of Chiefs of Police, FEMA and the FBI all recommend having active plans that include decision making and options rather than traditional school lockdown in the unlikely event of a school intruder.

    As you may know, Haverhill Public Schools has adopted ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate), a nationally recognized program. ALICE is a proactive set of responses to an active school intruder event which empowers individuals in crisis situations to be prepared to consider all options.

    The school district will be providing two School Safety Information Nights that will give parents and community members an opportunity to learn about ALICE.  These forums will include timelines on the implementation of educating our students prior to conducting our first student drill in November 2019.

    Parent Informational Nights will be held on the following dates:

    10/21/19        Hunking School:              5:00pm-6:30pm

    10/22/19        Consentino School:         7:00pm-8:30pm

    If you have questions or would like more information, please consider joining us at one of our  Informational Nights. Spanish interpreter services will be available on both Informational Nights. More information about ALICE is also available at: https://www.alicetraining.com/

    Sincerely,

    Margaret Marotta, Ed. D
    Superintendent of Schools
