Dear HES families,

I would like to extend a heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you as we embark on the 2023-2024 school year at the Heritage Elementary School.  Excitement fills the air for the experiences that await us.  Whether you are a returning student, a new second grade student, or the new 3rd or 4th grade student new to the town we are truly excited to welcome you!  Over the next year we look forward to forging new memories, learning new lessons, honing new skills while sharing some smiles and laughter along the way.

It has been a great honor and pleasure that I have served the Heritage School as its principal for the past two years.  I am honored and privileged to collaborate with the exceptional educators and staff who work with your children everyday.   Our staff works diligently to ensure that your children are challenged while providing a safe environment that allows the students to take academic risks.  Our staff truly cares about their students and prepares to welcome them everyday.   Do not hesitate to reach out to myself or the staff to continue so we can continue to create a team environment to support the students.

I am entering my 24th year in the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District.  Other than work I love spending time with my wife and three sons.   This year marks a tremendous milestone in the Olson house as my youngest just moved on to his freshman year of college.   The house is a lot quieter and I miss the noise already.   

If you have any questions, compliments or concerns please feel free to reach out to the school.  My email is and the school number is 508-248-4884.

Peter J. Olson, Principal
