Dear Center Families,

It was wonderful to have our Center community together for curriculum night! The high attendance at this and other community events is just one example of how supportive and involved our families are. Thank you for your continued partnership with us.

A reminder that Wednesday, September 22nd, is a half-day for all students. Students will be dismissed at 11:45. Please send a note to the teacher(s) if you have any change in your student(s) dismissal routine.

Great Students, Great Community, Great Employment Opportunity

We are still in need of building substitutes and a paraprofessional. Qualifications for the paraprofessional position is an associates, it does not have to be in education. Please call Donna or Dianna if you would like more information or apply through the following link

Have a great week.

Warm Regards,

Dianna and Donna

Student Consent Form: Weekly COVID-19 Pool Testing and/or Test and Stay Protocol

Parents are encouraged to provide consent for their child to participate in weekly COVID-19 pooltesting and the Test and Stay protocol. Pool testing and the Test and Stay protocol are key mitigation strategies as we work to provide a healthy and safe learning environment for students and staff in the Chelmsford Public Schools. You may consent for your child to participate in either or both programs.

If a parent elects not to have their child participate in the Test and Stay Program, the child must follow the traditional COVID-19 test and quarantine protocols if identified as a close contact to a COVID-19 positive case. Pool testing is strongly encouraged and recommended for unvaccinated individuals. Participation in the Test and Stay Program can significantly limit the amount of time your student will miss school if they are identified as a close contact. Please complete a separate form for each child that attends Chelmsford Public Schools.

A signed consent is required for both the Pool Testing and Test and Stay Programs. If a parent would like their child to participate in only 1 program (Pool Testing OR Test and Stay), please select and designate only 1 option from the consent form below. Chelmsford Public Schools are not currently offering symptomatic testing. The symptomatic testing option is included in this consent link, however, is not available in our district.

Currently Reading

After reading Same, Same but Different by Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw in library, students in 3R worked in pairs to discover that they are more alike than they realize. They also learned new things about each other along the way!
