Dr. Lester Hartman speaking to BHR students

If students at Blue Hills Regional Technical School thought that smoking, vaping and JUULING were just harmless pastimes, they got quite a wake-up call on January 27 from guest speaker Dr. Lester Hartman, who made the potential health risks of such behavior very clear to them.

“I hope Dr. Hartman convinced at least one or more students not to start vaping,” said Blue Hills Superintendent Jill Rossetti. “In follow-up sessions in their programs, students and teachers were discussing things they learned about regarding the dangers of nicotine, vaping, and addiction. Education is key to understanding the health consequences associated with vaping better. We hope these conversations continue at home so our students make good choices moving forward.”  

According to his biography, “Dr. Lester Hartman has been a pediatrician for 32 years and is currently the senior partner at Westwood-Mansfield Pediatric Associates. He is a Mass General Hospital researcher who…

BHR graduate Matthew Hurley of Randolph savors success as an Executive Chef

Imagine having the same boss for 26 years – and loving it.  Matthew Hurley, the accomplished executive chef at CUT, a restaurant located at the Palazzo Las Vegas that food critic and commentator John Curtas lauded as “one of the world’s greatest steakhouses…one of the best restaurants in America,” has had the enviable opportunity to work for renowned Chef Wolfgang Puck for more than two and a half decades, and still rhapsodizes about him.

That connection, plus Hurley’s expertise and innovative flair, has catapulted him to the lofty pinnacle of the food establishment in America’s capital of glamour and glitz.

You might think that Hurley’s next logical professional step would be to operate his own restaurant, but that’s not really one of his aspirations.

“I have the ideal situation already with everything I want,” he declares emphatically, noting that Chef Puck gives him the prized freedom to be creative. “I’ve achieved 99% of my goals.”

The Adult Basic Education (ABE) program administered by Blue Hills Regional Technical School has been awarded an $11,750 grant from the Dedham Savings Community Foundation. The grant was presented to administrators from the program and the school on January 9 at the former Capen School at 322 Sprague Street in Dedham where the program now holds classes.

The money will be used for an ABE sign for the building, new shades for classrooms and offices, and document readers for the classrooms.

Blue Hills Superintendent Jill Rossetti expressed her sincere gratitude to Dedham Savings for its generosity. “Thank you to the Trustees of the Dedham Savings Community Foundation for the grant. The Blue Hills Adult Education Program provides high school equivalency classes and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes. We appreciate your support of this important work which allows many community members to build better lives for themselves and their families.”


Important notification from Superintendent Rossetti regarding incident on January 7th

Dear Blue Hills Community:

This letter is to notify our school community that a freshman student brought a pellet gun and a live round of ammunition to school Tuesday.

At this time, there is no danger to the school community, and no threats have been made. Both items have been placed in custody of the Canton Police Department.

At approximately 1:10 p.m., a school official was notified by multiple students that a male student may possibly be in possession of a firearm. The Canton Police Department was notified immediately and responded to the school promptly.

School officials pulled the student out of class and a black pellet gun was found inside his backpack. The pellet gun was extremely realistic in appearance. A round of live ammunition was also found on the student.

Blue Hills Regional Technical School and the Canton Police Department are actively investigating the incident. The student will face discipline in accordance with the school's student…
