Dear Dunning Community,


We wanted to wish you and your family a fun-filled and safe Fourth of July holiday! We hope you are all having a great summer so far and that you have been able to find some time to relax.


As you may have heard at the school committee meeting last night (presentation below), at this time Framingham is preparing for a full return to school for all students. Given this information, we are hard at work preparing for everyone’s safe return to school based on the guidelines released from Governor Baker and Commissioner of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Jeff Riley regarding the reopening of schools this fall.


In order to ensure that everyone is getting the same information as it becomes available, and to help make the transition back to school as smooth as possible, we will be sending out our SMORE Newsletters throughout the summer. Our goal is to streamline the information coming out into one place so that it is easily accessible. We really encourage everyone to read these newsletters fully so that you are staying up to date on information that we are sharing.


Over the summer, we will be checking our VIRTUAL OPEN DOOR PADLET as well.


Sincerely,

Ms. Schecter & Mrs. Lasky

Library Books

IF YOU HAVE A DUNNING LIBRARY BOOK AT HOME DO NOT WORRY WE WILL GET IT NEXT YEAR!


Framingham Public Schools' Libraries will not be collecting library books from families until the next school year. FPS Libraries do not charge late fees, so please do not worry about books being late. Please store any FPS Library books in your children's backpacks until then. We look forward to collecting Library books when we re-open the buildings in the fall.


If your children are attending a new FPS school in the fall, books may be returned to their new school library. If your children will not be returning to an FPS school, books may be returned to any FPS school Library."
