Wishing Everyone a Restful Summer

Dear Nashoba Community,

I hope this message finds our community enjoying these warm summer days with friends and family. Summer is the perfect time to make lasting memories. It is also the perfect time to recharge. I hope this message finds our community engaging in activities that do both. Enjoy the change of pace the summer season provides.

Before long, we will welcome our students back to school. We are already incredibly excited about the start of a new school year and the promise it will bring for our Nashoba community. A great amount of work was accomplished last year to establish a strong framework for the future of Nashoba.

The 2022-2023 school year will mark the first year of implementation of a robust and forward-thinking Strategic Plan, the publishing of our Portrait of a Nashoba Graduate, and the submission of the feasibility plan to the Massachusetts School Building Authority for a new high school. The year ahead is full of promise and hope for our community. We are committed to ongoing improvement and to becoming the model system for the state of Massachusetts and beyond.

Thank you all for your continued kindness and support.


Kirk Downing (he/him)

Superintendent of Schools

2022-2023 School Lunch Update

We have a significant update in regards to our Nashoba School Lunch Program. Governor Charlie Baker agreed to a major increase in state spending, signing a $52.7 billion annual budget. Included in that additional spending is the continuation of the Universal Free School Lunch for the FY2022/2023 school year. School lunch will be offered to our students free of charge for the 2022-2023 school year.

All students need to register for a lunch account on My School Bucks to receive their daily lunch. Families can register for MySchoolBucks by selecting “Lunch Menu and Payment” under Quick Links on the homepage of our web site. This lunch account will ensure that your student can purchase a second lunch or snack.

Please get in touch with John Overcash, Director of Food and Nutrition, at jovercashjr@nrsd.net or Lauren Brasili, Program Coordinator at lbrasili2@nrsd.net, for more information.
