A Message from the Front Office

Bryantville Families,


We hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving Break! Last week was a short one but a busy one that was topped off with our Turkey Trot on Wednesday! It was a cold morning for a run, but our students did awesome. Thank you to Mr. Weldon for organizing and running the event. Last week also saw the return of Mrs. Power to her second-grade classroom! Welcome back!


Reminder to keep an eye out for the Pick-a- Time information for conferences. Conferences are coming up on Wednesday, December 8 (1:30-6:30) and Thursday, December 9 (4:00-8:00). Through Pick-a-Time, you will determine your conference time and whether you would like to meet in person or virtually. This information should be shared later this week. Remember to always check the rest of the blast for future important dates, information, reminders, and updates from the PTO!


We are thankful for our Bryantville community and your continued support.


Sincerely,


Jen Simmons and Traci Costa

Grade 5 & 6 Postural Screenings

As a reminder, the annual postural screening started Tuesday 11/16/21 and will continue until Thursday 12/2/21. The purpose of this screening is to find early signs of possible spinal problems in children in grades 5 and 6. It is not a diagnostic service but a program to identify young people who should have further medical evaluations. This screening is required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in grades 5 through 9.


If your child has any unusual findings, you will be notified. If no problems are identified you will not be contacted. If for any reason you do not wish for your son or daughter to participate in this program, a signed letter must be submitted to the school nurse on or before the day of the screening, excusing the student.

Anticipated Class Schedule:

  • Tuesday 11/16 – Adams
  • Thursday 11/18 – Bartholomae
  • Friday 11/19 – Davis/Towers
  • Tuesday 11/23 – Kennedy
  • Tuesday 11/30 – McNulty
  • Thursday 12/2 - Murphy

If you have any questions, please contact me @ 781-293-5411 or via email at Catherine.haley@pembrokek12.org.

Vaccinations

As a reminder, please submit all vaccination information directly to your school nurse.

If your child is absent:

If your child is going to be absent please call 781-563-2050 and leave a detailed message including the student's name, grade, and reason/symptoms. Nurse Haley will contact you with any questions.
