On behalf of the Hindale Middle School PTO, the Executive Board would like to express its gratitude and appreciation to everyone in our school district and community who made possible the successful response to the complex situation at Hinsdale Middle School over the past weeks. This crisis could only have been addressed through the efforts of many people working toward the common purpose of restoring a healthy learning and teaching environment.

We thank the administrators and School Board members who worked overtime to thoughtfully and quickly put a plan in place to address conditions at HMS while enabling our students to return to school on a split-day schedule.

Although it’s never easy to please everyone, even in the best of times, the decisions the administration and board reached proved to be the best solutions we could envision. To the Clarendon Hills Middle School staff, PTO, students and parents, thank you for so generously welcoming our teachers and students into your building. We were truly impressed by how easily you adapted your school and schedules to accommodate HMS. Our own staff, who attended board meetings, voiced their concerns, and wholeheartedly supported the board’s plan, executed flawlessly against a short timeline in extraordinary circumstances. You taught by example and showed our children how to persevere when the unexpected disrupts daily life.

And finally, to our students, we are immensely proud of the character and determination you displayed — taking it all in stride and making the most of a new learning environment.

Kathy Adelmann and Karen Choi
