ASPEN is the system that Darien Public Schools uses to stay in touch with parents. The Hindley Parent Teacher organization uses a separate system to send out weekly emails and other announcements called The Wire. To subscribe to The Wire, click here.
You are invited to an informal “meet and greet” with our new Principal DJ Colella on Wed. July 20th at 7:00 pm and Thurs. July 21st at 9:15 am. This will be a great opportunity, before the school year begins, to hear Principal Colella speak and for a brief Q&A session. Please help us extend a warm welcome our new principal!
