We are all very excited about the upcoming school year at Hadley‑Luzerne. The transition into ninth grade will be a great opportunity for each student.

It is important that everyone will get to know each other and develop a feeling that school will be a place where we have high expectations for academic success and people who care! A tour of the building will be optional and free and reduced lunch applications will be available. We have received many favorable responses regarding this important evening. The teamwork among parents, guardians, teachers and administrators, will provide an environment with high expectations for all of our students.
