Reminders

Field:

During school hours, the back field is not open, as it is used by classes. Please be mindful of this during arrival and dismissal times.


Parking:


Please remember that there is no driving or parking in the coned off areas. It is helpful if you relay that information to any friends/relatives helping with drop off or pick up.


Absences:


I just wanted to thank the families who contact the office when their child will be absent for the day. While it is fine to text/remind/email your child's teacher as well, the office still needs to be notified. The ELC office number: (508) 223-1563 or you mail e-mail Mrs. Johnston at jjohnston@attleboroschools.com.

AT HOME ROUTINE COVID TESTING

Please know that the actual testing is completely painless and easy. It is NOT a deep swab up their nose. Their nose is gently swabbed just inside of the nostrils.
