To Our Military Families:
On behalf of our entire school community, welcome to Hoffman-Boston Elementary School. We are honored to serve the children of your family. This webpage provides links to resources that may prove useful in making your transition into our community smooth. As one of the approximately two million military-connected children in America, your child will join the 80,000 school-age students of active-duty military families here in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We are proud to help make your time with us as rewarding and enriching as possible!
