It is incredibly sad that I deliver this news to you in the wake of another school shooting. However, I am glad to bring you this information about the future of safety practices at HPPDS.
This year, HPPDS, HP Pres and the Hillier School formed a safety team that met regularly to discuss the future of safety for our building. I am so grateful that our work together resulted in the hiring of an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced consultant, Mr. Paul Lake with Sentry One Consulting Group. Mr. Lake completed an audit of the building and current safety protocols, and provided recommendations to the safety team that are projected to be in place for the 2018-2019 school year.

Sometimes preschools that are considered "play-based" are assumed to be non-academic, as though it can only be one or the other. On the contrary, neuroscience research consistently points to play as the best way for a child to develop academic skills. Play in the early childhood years is essential for building healthy brain architecture; it creates the foundation upon which all later learning happens.
