Dr. Henry E. Perrine Academy of the Arts

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

The Dr. Henry E. Perrine Academy of the Arts family welcomes you and your children to an exciting and productive year. We encourage your interest and participation. We are convinced that in order for children to have a successful education there must be a positive and strong partnership between the home, school, and community.

We are concerned about the safety and happiness of your children. We have established guidelines to be followed by you and your children in our Parent/Student Handbook. Students and parents/guardians can access the Parent/Student Handbook document on the Perrine Academy website or you may request a copy from your child’s homeroom teacher. To ensure OUR SUCCESS it will be important that all of us adhere to these policies. They, in fact, remain as large part of learning as does the classroom. Please familiarize yourself and your children with these policies and keep the handbook as a reference. Please sign the attached copy of the Receipt of Parent/Student Handbook/Rainy Day Procedures form and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher. Your interest and support are greatly appreciated.

We urge you to keep in touch with our staff, to ask questions and make suggestions. In order to keep the lines of communications open Perrine Academy will utilize its website and APP to update you on any upcoming activities, important information and/or announcements. Working cooperatively, we hope to provide every student with the opportunity to develop his/her potential to the fullest. We look forward to working with your children during the school year.
