A huge congratulations to King's very own assistant principal Ms. Gelardi for completing the 2023 Boston Marathon!

Big picture

Ms. Gelardi wants to thank everyone who supported her along the way!

A Special Shoutout to all members of Team Framingham and all Framingham runners who participated in this year's marathon!

We also wanted to acknowledge the concerns shared by two of Boston’s premier clubs for BIPOC runners and the BAA's statement in response "...we need to do better to create an environment that is welcoming and supportive of the BIPOC communities at the marathon."

Please let us know if you believe your child would benefit from a check in with one of our social workers in regards to this event.

Shout out to King Specialists for another fun and exciting Break Bonanza!

Meet the King Staff!

Allergy Friendly Classrooms

  • We ask that snacks (that are often eaten in the classroom) do not include nuts or nut butters. All classroom spaces at King this year will be allergy friendly rooms. Students are, however, allowed to have nuts and nut butters as part of their lunches in the cafeteria.
  • In the cafeteria each classroom has 2 tables. One is labeled allergy friendly. We ask that any students that have nut or nut butter allergies sit at these tables; we ask that any students who have nut or nut butters as part of their lunch sit at the other tables.
  • Students have been introduced to this in the cafeteria already, and will be reminded by their classroom teachers again.

Tour the school with ROARY!
