Welcome New Principal, Abbie Hartford!

Dear MES Families,  

It is with much enthusiasm that I  begin the new year as the new principal here at Manchester Elementary School.  Twenty-two years ago I began my teaching career right here at MES as a student teacher in the resource room!!  What a welcome surprise to find myself once again in this highly respected, caring school community.

A brief bio of me: I taught elementary school for twelve years as a resource room teacher and then a teacher of grades k-3.  For the past ten years I have been a teaching principal and then a principal of two elementary schools. As importantly, I am a parent of three grown children, two step daughters, two grandsons and more grandchildren in October!!  Not to mention the dogs, cats, cows, sheep and one goat named Old Joe Gage! In essence, I am a seasoned educator and parent and a slightly experienced farmer.

I love the learning process and eagerly join the MES staff to ensure your children grow academically and socially/emotionally.  Though it is still early in the summer, I am anxious and excited to meet your children and I look forward to working with families and teachers in the year ahead.

Abbie Hartford
Manchester Elementary School Principal

Important Reminder to All Parents:

To ensure safety for all, the circle in front of the school is for busses only between 7:15-8:00 AM and 2:30-3:05 PM. Parents are asked to park in the rear school parking lot (near Castletown) when dropping off/picking up their child during that time. Please note, our school day does not start until 7:30 a.m. (all exterior doors are locked until this time and students will not be allowed to enter until 7:30 a.m.!) Additionally, students may not be dropped off on the playground until 7:30 a.m. because there are no duty teachers until this time!
