Superintendent's Welcome Back letter- 2023-2024


  Olga Hugelmeyer


  Superintendent of Schools



Dear Elizabeth Public Schools Families,


On behalf of Elizabeth Public Schools, I welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! September is here and we are ready to kick off another year filled with excellent achievements from our students and team members.


We are committed to preparing our students for college, career, and live success by providing initiatives, programs, and lessons that further develop their academic, athletic, and artistic capacities and talents. In the classroom, we will accomplish that by providing innovative and personalized learning environments, high quality instruction, and a rigorous curriculum while holding our students to high expectations of achievement.


Our promise to ensure every child achieves excellence begins with our highly qualified and devoted teachers and continues through our organization with our dedicated administrative and support team members. The strength and success of our school communities are also solidified by the participation of our families, so I certainly encourage you to participate in your child’s education in any way possible and to please feel free to keep open communication with your child’s teachers, principals, district leaders, and me regarding any questions or concerns.


The efforts of our wonderful parent/teacher organization volunteers, combined with the positive reinforcement students receive from their families at home, go a long way to make the educational experience one that is truly special.


As a reminder, various welcome back information specific to your child’s school can be found on our district website at


Our team looks forward to partnering with you this school year as we prepare your children for a prosperous future. We will see you on September 8 and warmest wishes for an outstanding 2023-2024 school year!
