A message from the Superintendent
It is with profound sadness that I write this letter to let you know that one of our Haverhill High School seniors tragically passed away last night. The school community sends our condolences and thoughts to the family and friends of the student. Today, we began processing this tragic news and coping with our grief by offering counseling and bereavement support services to all students and staff.
The passing of a friend is a difficult and challenging event that can generate a high level of anxiety and distress in many children. Young people often have limited experience coping with loss and may be confused as to how to handle grief. If you feel that your child is having difficulty, we encourage you to discuss their thoughts and feelings to help them to work through their sadness. I have included some resources below from Riverside Trauma Center to support you in these difficult conversations. Staff from Riverside will be at Haverhill High School tomorrow and available to families by phone as requested. Please contact the school at 978-374-5700 if you feel that further follow-up with your child would be helpful.
On Wednesday, September 26, a memorial candlelight ceremony will be held at 6:00 p.m. on the athletic fields behind the high school. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be moved inside to the gymnasium. I hope to have the community of Haverhill and Hillie Nation join us in remembering one of our own.
Thank you for your support as we move forward. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this time of loss and grief.

HHS Celebrates NAF Academy of Information Technology Senior Class
On September 10th we celebrated the success of our NAF Academy of Information Technology Senior class. We came together with peers, business mentors, staff, family and friends to learn about their summer paid internships and celebrate their successes. NAF students are required to complete a minimum 120 hour paid internship as a component to complete their NAFTrack Certification. We are so proud of our first cohort of AOIT students and know they will be successful as they move forward in the career path they decide to follow. Their internships will certainly help them as they make these important decisions over the coming year!
We would like to acknowledge the businesses and organizations who supported our students this summer:
Discovery Club and Access 21
HHS Website Development
Mocera, Visconti & Company CPAs
OwlStamp Visual Solutions
Physical Sciences Inc.

Thank you from Haverhill Public Schools
We would like to thank school staff and the community for their understanding and support in dealing with today’s incidents. As you know, due to heavy police activity in the city, schools and Haverhill police determined that a shelter-in-place for the safety of our students was warranted. Simultaneously we had a threat issued to the Pentucket Lake School , safety protocols were immediately implemented, police were called to the scene and the threat was determined to not be credible.
The School Department and city takes the safety of our citizens and particularly our students very seriously. We thank the parents for their quick response and understanding of the situation. We thank the school staff and police officers for rallying around the support and safety of our students.
