Dear Bluehawk Families,

As you know, junior high school principal Derek Reardon has been filling in as the interim principal at the high school since early May. At the Board of Education meeting on June 7th, Mr. Reardon was appointed to the high school principal position permanently effective July 1, 2022.

We believe that Mr. Reardon’s history with and knowledge of Hudson will help maintain consistency for our students and families. Mr. Reardon is also eager to continue working with high school students, staff, and families. We hope you are as pleased as we are to have Mr. Reardon continue in this leadership role at Hudson Senior High School.

At the junior high school, Ian MacCormack continues to serve as the interim principal until a successful candidate is in place to permanently fill that position. The search for a permanent candidate is in progress and we will update families as we move forward.

Also at the June 7th meeting, the Board appointed elementary associate principal Dr. Trini Hernandez to the position of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity (DEI) Manager. She will begin this role on August 8th. This is a wonderful opportunity for Dr. Hernandez and we are proud to see her advance into a central administration role. We look forward to all the important work that we will do together to support our DEI policy. There will be a posting for a new associate principal in the coming weeks.

The appointments of Mr. Reardon and Dr. Hernandez to these new administrative roles are the result of their proven track records and leadership abilities they have demonstrated in their respective buildings. We are looking forward to this new chapter in HCSD leadership and the continuation of supporting our students and staff as best we can.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office at 518-828-4360 ext. 2101.


Dr. Lisamarie Spindler
Superintendent of Schools
