Important Note Regarding Parent Pickup!!

This year we have installed a gate in the back entrance of the school (Rt. 28 side) to prevent vehicles from entering the grounds during the school day because we have students outside during recess and PE. Please note that the gate does not open until 3 pm for parent pick up. We have recently been informed that there have been a number of parents coming much earlier than 3 pm from both HBB and MKG and it is resulting in cars backing up on Rt. 28, with cars blocking traffic.

We have been informed by the Middleborough Police Department that cars blocking traffic will be ticketed so please do not arrive for pickup any earlier than 3 pm.

If you have any questions please let us know and thank you for your attention to this matter.

After School Clubs

After School Clubs start this week! Not all clubs were able to run and you should have received confirmation if your child is in a club, if you have not please let us know.

All after school clubs run from 3:30 to 4:30 and we ask that all parents and guardians to be on time for pickup. Students must be signed out of their club by an adult. Students cannot be sent home with another parent without a note and if your child is not attending a club on a specific day you must also send a note or they will not be allowed to get on the bus. Please pay very close attention to the schedule of meeting dates and our rules and policies. Follow the school calendar, which can be found by clicking here for an update date listing of dates.

Should you have any questions please contact us by phone or reach out to Mrs. Borromeo at
