Week of December 4

No School

A reminder that Friday, December 1st there will be no school due to a staff Professional Development Day.

Lockdown Drill

Today, 11/30 we had a lockdown drill throughout school. Students did an excellent job understanding and practicing the emergency procedures that help keep everyone safe.

Clothing Donations

We are looking for clothing donations in all sizes including pants, shirts, and unused socks & underwear for our emergency office supply. If you are able to give any items, please drop them off in the main office. Thanks for your support!

Auction Co-Chair Needed

The Spring Auction and Gala on March 3, 2018 is one of Hyde-Addison’s most wonderful events of the year.  As you can imagine, the PTA needs your help in making this event a success.  We are looking for one or two parent/guardian volunteers to Co-Chair the event with the Fundraising VP.  The responsibilities will range from soliciting donations, managing day-of activities, and working with volunteers on logistics, donations and event activities.  Please contact Bhavna Lee at bhavna.lee@gmail.com or 410-294-6855 to discuss the co-chair position. It is a lot of fun and we look forward to getting some great volunteers involved to make this night a success!


In an effort to ensure all students are complying with DCPS's attendance policy (which can be found here: https://dcps.dc.gov/attendance), phone calls will be made to guardians of any student absent without an excuse. To avoid those phone calls, please email hyde.addison@dc.gov with a reason each time your student is absent.

Lost & Found

Please stop by the cafeteria to check out the lost and found for any of your students items. Any unclaimed items will be donated on December 21st.

Winter Show

Save the date for this year’s Winter Show on December 21st from 9-10am. More information about the program will be shared soon.

Report Cards

1st Term report cards will be mailed home today for PK students. If you do not receive your student’s report card by Friday, 12/8 please email hyde.addison@dc.gov.
