Morning Arrival

I'm thrilled to report that the arrival process and in particular the family drop off has been going very well.


For families that wish to walk their child(ren) into the building, please drop off at the main entrance. At this point, families should not be walking down to the classrooms. We appreciate everyone's cooperation with this.


Bus Safety

In collaboration with your child's bus driver, Mrs. Sousa has began her bus safety talks. Any support you can offer us in reiterating the importance of appropriate behavior on the bus is greatly appreciated. Encourage your children to show their STRIPES on the bus! :)


Please take a moment to watch this Bus Safety Video with your child(ren).

Important Message: Student Information Form

Yesterday, many families received another notification to set-up the Parent Portal and complete the Student Information Form. Tyngsborough Public Schools is now collecting yearly information updates through an online Student Information Form. Most of the information on this form is pre-populated with what we currently have on file. Please review and make changes where necessary. If you have multiple children, you will receive a separate email for each.


This form is now past due.


Completion of this form provides consent for our health office to medically treat your child and also allows children to participate in field trips. Please complete by Friday, 9/21. Should you have any questions, please contact the main office or Mr. Chmilarksi
