Roy-Hart welcomes 20 new team members


From the Superintendent's Desk

Dear Community Members,

We are looking forward to opening schools at full capacity in September and are currently preparing our buildings for full-time (5 days per week) of in-person learning. This coming week, we will be welcoming over 20 new teachers, counselors and administrators to our District as part of a three day orientation. Our teachers, aides and monitors will return on September 1 and we will open our doors for our students on September 7.

The recruitment, interview and selection process for the District is comprehensive and involves many members of our staff. Prior to recommending teacher candidates to the Board of Education, I spend time with each person to learn more about their experiences and why they chose to apply in Roy-Hart. I often hear comments such as “the school is very welcoming,” “the staff feels more like a family than a faculty,” “the school is safe and clean,” “when you enter the building, it is clear that learning is taking place,” and “it has always been my goal to work in the Roy-Hart School District”. I am so very proud of the good work taking place in our schools and that we are a destination for many educators.

A special thank you to all of our staff for their efforts this summer in preparing for our students returning to school.

I wish to encourage all those who are eligible to consider obtaining a COVID vaccination this summer prior to the start of school. As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out directly or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski

Dr. Hank Stopinski
Superintendent of Schools
