Message from the Principal

Queridas Familias de la Escuela Barbieri,

We had a GREAT first week back! Seeing all of our Barbieri family members from a safe distance and being able to talk in person and not from a camera was the best feeling! I hope everyone's experience back into their classrooms and office spaces was a positive one. Please continue to reach out to us in the main office with requests, comments, concerns or to simply check in! The next week will be a busy one for us all as we wrap up loose ends to plan for a full phases 3 and 4 return for after February vacation (no date has been set*). We will continue to share details as we receive them.

THANK YOU so much for your continued support at home, we could not do this without our families!!!

Que disfruten su noche,


PS- Let it snow and football!!!

NEW Barbieri Distribution Date!!!!! 2/26/21

The administrative team requested to have the date for our February Distribution changed to have more time to prepare due to the return to school and staff settling into classrooms and offices. The Office of Teaching and Learning has approved our change of date to FRIDAY, FERURARY 26th!!!

My MedBot App

ALL FPS STAFF will continue to complete the My MedBot attestation form daily before reporting to school. At Barbieri School we are still signing in and it daily on our attendance sheet to have live updated information of who is in the building. When students return to school My MedBot attestation forms will also be a requirement for students as well as staff.

Rooms 111, 123 and 409----THANK YOU!!!

Thank you to ALL of our staff for a successful and safe first full week back!!!! A special thanks to room 111, 123 and 409 who returned to school and ALSO welcomed students this week!!! From buses, breakfast, specials, duties, we made it work again! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!


Big picture
At this point in the school year all families have decided on their children remaining remote or returning to in-person learning. If at any point you wish to change your mind you can by simply emailing me ( Once I receive an email with your intention of changing the instruction mode for your child/children, then we must adhere to the check in points designated by DESE and FPS. The next check-in point is March 19th. During these check-ins we assess for space, transportation, food service, etc. prior to students returning to school. IF it is determined that your child is able to return we inform you. Please remember that for now you will be placed on a waitlist as the next check-in point is not until March 19th for an April 5th return.

COVID-19 Testing at Barbieri School UPDATE!!!

The district will now be offering testing to all staff AND students returning in phases I and II starting Monday. Due to this change we will now have testing at Barbieri School on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8th from 1:00PM-3:30PM.

Counselor's Corner

Framingham Family Resource Center has some fantastic resources for family support groups during the month of February that might be beneficial for your family. Some groups are:

Father’s Support Group

Virtual Parent Support Groups

Grandparent Caregiver Support Group February 19th

Parenting Journey

Real Talk (Young Men Ages 14-18)

Women Thriving

Please click each link for a flyer with more information. Especially in times that we’ve had to do so much out of the norm, support groups are a great way to be heard and learn from others. I hope you and your family can benefit from them.

Classroom Supervisors

The district has assigned classroom supervisors at each school to support our teachers who must continue to work remotely as students transition back to school. Classroom Supervisors will be physically in classrooms with students while teachers who need to remain remote teach them virtually. We are thrilled to welcome new members into our family!
