Idling Cars In The Pick Up Line

Please turn your cars engine off when outside awaiting dismissal at school. Limiting a vehicle’s idling time can dramatically reduce these pollutants and children’s exposure to them.


Thank you for your attention to this!

Dear Nixon Families,
Please find below the specific schedule for the upcoming MCAS tests. These are the exact dates your children will be taking the exam. Please encourage your child to get sufficient rest the night before any tests, to eat breakfast, and to extend their best effort. Children should also be encouraged to bring a small water bottle to school; hydration is a key to concentration. It is imperative that all children be in school during testing. Please try to avoid any appointments or trips that will prevent your child from attending school. As of the drafting of this letter, we have not received guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in how we will test remote students. More information will be forthcoming.


Information on the 2021 MCAS test requirements can be found here.
