Off-Site Evacuation Drill April 22nd

The Scituate Middle/High School will perform an off-site evacuation drill (weather permitting) on Monday, April 22nd. All students and staff will be directed to exit the building and will be accounted for at a predetermined location off campus. We encourage all students to wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and suitable shoes for a short walk.

The drill has been supported by the district emergency response team in conjunction with the Scituate Police and Fire Departments. During the drill, there will be an increase in police presence at the Middle/High School. Their presence is required for traffic direction and to provide school security. Once the drill is complete, students will return to the building and class will resume for the remainder of the day.

The Middle/High School Administors, School Counselors, School Resource Officer, and School Nurse have developed a list of students and faculty who may be physically unable to walk to the offsite location. Those students have been notified that they will remain in the middle/high school media center with appropriate school staff during the drill.

Students have been reminded to remain quiet during the drill and stay with their classroom teacher at all times. We encourage you to reinforce these points at home

As always, students safety is a top priority and we are fortunate to have the support of the community so that Scituate Middle/High School can be as prepared as possible during an emergency situation.

Thank you for your partnership and cooperation!

Spartan Athletics

Spring sports are finally underway. All athletes are registered and rosters have been finalized. Third quarter eligibility will be confirmed next week.

WEATHER As you all know Spring weather in New England is extremely unreliable. It changes day to day and sometimes minute to minute. Cancellations are sometimes tricky and sometimes unavoidable. Please stress to your athlete that he/she should dress appropriately and pack layers so that they are prepared for the quickly changing conditions.

Do not hesitate to reach Sal Gelsomino any time at or you can contact me at (401) 647-4120 X4124

New England Student Leadership Conference


Each summer, student-athletes and school activities participants from RIIL member schools have the unique opportunity to network with students from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont at the annual New England Student Leadership Conference. This year’s event will be conducted July 16-19,2019 at Worcester State University.

Students who are entering grades 10, 11, or 12 in the fall of 2019 are encouraged to apply for a spot in this conference.

In addition to the curriculum sessions, conference attendees from Rhode Island, that are entering their junior or senior year, will have the opportunity to learn about, and apply for a position on the 2019-2020 RIIL Student Advisory Committee.

Incredible attention is being paid to high school athletics and activities programs today. Participants in these programs are looked up to as leaders because of their position on the team or club. The impact that these young people have on the climate and culture of their schools, fellow students and community is tremendous. In fact, studies show that more than one-half of high school students participate in some form of school activity or athletic program. The involvement of these students in the success of a high school is paramount and critical.


Baseball takes the dub v N. Smithfield 3-1. Ben was a beast at the plate-Logan, Max and Ben knocked in runs-Max pitched a complete game w/10Ks, and Sean Ward saved it all with a spectacular defensive play of the game for the last out!
