Message from Principal Cullinane
This newsletter has important information regarding next week's transition to hybrid learning. Throughout the newsletter are links to various resources that will hopefully address any questions or concerns you may have. Please reach out to the admin team with any questions you may have.
We are able to transition to hybrid learning because we have safety protocols like mandatory mask wearing and social distancing. It is imperative that students follow these protocols so that we can ensure our school community's safety to the best extent possible.
We'd also like to thank our staff for their hard work in getting us prepared for this transition, and our students and families for their patience through this process.
Thank you all. We look forward to seeing our students return next week!
New Start Time and a Schedule Update
Also remember that the schedule for all students shifts with the rollout of our hybrid learning plan. See the updated schedule in the letter referenced below.
Important Information For Students
All students should read the letter thoroughly before next week.
All cohorts are now accessible in PowerSchool. Please use the following directions to determine Cohort Designation.
Students have all been assigned into a Cohort. We were able to honor all requests made by families who filled out our form asking for a change of cohort.
Students will complete an Attendance Google Form each day during the asynchronous time. Students should check their email, as they will receive more information about this process in the next few days.
Bus Routes and Pickup Times
For students planning on utilizing the bus, please refer to PowerSchool for pertinent information. Bus routes and pickup times will be posted on PowerSchool before the end of the week.
Students riding the bus will be dropped off and picked up in front of the school. Students will not be able to exit their buses in the mornings until 7:30am when the school doors open.
Outdoor breakfast is available to eat outside the school.
Students choosing to eat breakfast or bring a grab-and-go lunch home should know that no eating on the bus is allowed.
Students Being Dropped Off/Picked Up by Parents/Guardians
Breakfast will be available outside the auditorium for students to eat outdoors.
Student pick up will occur behind the school. Parents should enter through the auditorium side, head behind the school, and exit out the student parking. Students should exit the school at dismissal, through the doors at the back of the cafeteria.
Student Drivers and Walkers
Breakfast will be available outside the student entrance for students to eat outdoors.
Students walking to school should time their arrival at school for as close as possible to when the doors open at 7:30am.
Please have health care providers fax or mail medication orders to the health office.
Medications that may need to be administered during the school day can be dropped off at your convenience. Please call 978-779-2257 ext 3112 to schedule a time for medication drop off.
