Mindfulness Minute

"Before you walk through a door, pause for a moment and take one deep breathe. Be aware of the differences you feel as you walk into new spaces." (Jan Chozen Bays, How to Train and Elephant).

Bus Route Updates for this week

Due to a driver shortage, NRT has made the following changes to the Masconomet Bus Routes for the upcoming week.

Masco 10 High/middle will be combined with Masco 6 in the morning and afternoons.

Masco 22 High/Middle will be combined with Masco 12 in the morning and afternoons.

If there are other changes, we will be sure to get them out to families as soon as possible.

COVID Test Kits

If your student is currently out of the building for an internship or did not receive their test kit, you can arrange to pick up your test kit in the High School Main Office. If you would like us to send it home with a younger sibling, feel free to have your student contact the Main Office.

June Semester Exam Schedule and Conflicts

The final exam schedule is now posted. With the final exam published, it has come to my attention that there may be family obligations in conflict with the published exam schedule. Any request to move an exam or take an exam late, needs to come through my office using this google form. No Semester exam will be administered prior to June 17, 2022, the official start of the exam period. However, I am willing to work with you if there is a conflict that can be resolved within the final exam schedule (June 17 - June 23). If we are unable to find a time during the exam period we can work to find a mutually agreeable time to complete the exam during the summer. The first two summer make-up dates will be Monday, June 27 and Tuesday, June 28 at 9:00 AM. Please know, any student who does not complete their exam before June 23, 2022 will likely have an incomplete until school resumes in August. I realize that some absences are unplanned, and if you miss an exam on a given day, you would work with your teacher directly to reschedule the exam in a make-up window OR plan to complete the exam over the summer.

Class of 2024

Thanks to the generous donation of the Masco PAC, I will be starting some PAC Chats with Dr. C. during lunch for members of the sophomore class. I will provide pizza but if pizza isn't your thing, bring your own lunch with you or grab one from the cafeteria. I am curious to know how the year is going and what is on your mind. Watch your inbox for an email with the sign-up instructions. I look forward to hearing from you.

Tri-Town Council

All Night Grad Party registration for the class of 2022 open until 4/29. Volunteer chaperones especially needed for the Masco leg. Info and links to register along with other TTC news and updates in the link HERE and below:
