Learn More About the Recent Property Tax "Freeze"
New York lawmakers enacted a temporary property tax “freeze” as part of the 2014-15 state budget. For the subsequent two years, the state will reimburse property tax increases paid by homeowners to school districts and municipalities that stay within their 2 percent tax levy growth caps. The New York State School Boards Association has provided answers to some frequently asked questions about the tax freeze. View the Q&A

From the Principal

 
 
HES is certainly a Place for Great Beginnings. I have witnessed first-hand the strength of our learning community. I measure this strength by the presence of highly professional and caring faculty and staff, parents who are greatly involved and enthusiastic children who come to school every day with a natural curiosity for learning. The HES community welcomes a strong home-school connection because hand in hand we can accomplish great things for our children. Have a fantastic year!
