9/19/19 PTA McTeacher Night 5-8pm McDonald’s on Maynard

9/24/19 Interims go home

9/26/19 Curriculum Night 6-7:30 (PTA Meeting at 6)

9/30/19 NO SCHOOL


Independence Day is September 23rd


As students get adjusted to the school year we have appreciated parents supporting them by getting them to class, having breakfast with them, and stopping to say hello to the teachers. As of Monday, September 23rd we will not be allowing parents to walk students to class. This really teaches students to be independent and allows teachers to get their day started. It also helps us with the overall safety of the school. If you do need to see a teacher please send them an email or call and ask Mrs. Morin to get them a message. 


Daily Drop-off and Pick Up


Drop off times are 8:45-9:15

Pick up times are from 3:45-4:00 

  • No drop off prior to 8:45 as there is no staff to monitor students,
  • You may NOT park on Pond Street to drop off students for safety reasons.  
  • Carpoolers must remain in their cars in the carpool line at all times.
  • You must have your carpool tag. After Wednesday, September 4th,  you will have to come inside to check out your child. (Please see Mrs. Morin, in the front office, for your carpool tag.
