This has been a difficult week here at Haverhill High School. These past couple of weeks had been filled with so much excitement and happiness from all our senior events to graduation for the Class of 2017. We also have had great sadness with the sudden passing of Bryce Finn. We truly thank our counselors and administrators for guiding our students through this very difficult time. We ask all of Hillie Nation and our Haverhill community to keep Bryce’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
Have a safe and restful week-end!
Beth Kitsos, Principal
