Bobcat Bulletin

C.D. Hunking School | May 22, 2022

I had the pleasure of attending the play Into the Woods, Jr. Saturday afternoon. Wow! I was so impressed with the students. They put on a phenomenal performance. All of their hard work paid off. Thank you to Mr. K and Mrs. Fairbrother for their dedication to our students who enjoy the arts. 

We currently have a challenge at Hunking involving out AC units.  Last weekend thunderstorms rolled through Haverhill and were responsible for shorting out the control boards on three rooftop AC units. After an exhaustive search by our Director of Facilities the boards have been ordered but we do not have an exact date of their arrival or installation. However, given the temperatures this weekend there will be some rooms that will be very warm come Monday. We will do our best to cool rooms as best we can. Thankfully the predicted temperatures next week are reasonable but please plan on sending your child to school with a water bottle daily so they remain hydrated.
