PTO School Directory
The Hardy School PTO directory is printed once a year and includes names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of Hardy families. It's very helpful when planning play dates, birthday parties or when you need to get in touch with another Hardy School family. Participation is voluntary and the full directory will be distributed to all Hardy School families. If you are a new family at Hardy, were missing from last year's directory or need to correct your family information please use this link to provide the proper information. Deadline for inclusion in the directory has been extended to Monday, October 21.

Message from the nurse:
Please remember to give the specific reason for your child's absence so the school nurse can identify particular illnesses that are spreading through the school. To receive updates and blogs on health, wellness and other related topics such as food recall Information, please go to the nurses page at www.hardyschool.com/nurse. Also, mandatory health forms for medication administration, allergy or asthma action plans and other health related documentation can be accessed through this site. I will try and keep you updated on all recent events and information that can impact health and wellness. Thank you!
