Dear Parents,

Is is with a heavy heart that I write this letter to notify you that on July 15, 2014 Hoggetowne Middle School will be closing. As stated in the Florida Statutes your child has the option to enroll in many of the district schools without complications or delays.

1002.33 Charter schools. (g) If a charter is not renewed or is terminated, a student who attended the school may apply to, and shall be enrolled in, another public school.

Normal application deadlines shall be disregarded under such circumstances.Thank you for all the great years and I wish you the best for your child and your family.

It has been a pleasure to serve all of you.
