- Toner Cartridge Fundraiser: Hello McCarthy Families. The PTO is excited to introduce a new program this year to raise money for our school. The Funding Factory collects used toner and ink cartridges and recycles them, while giving money back to the school. A drop box has been placed across the hall from the main office at McCarthy Middle School. Please encourage family members and employers to save their cartridges and send them in with your student. Any size ink or toner cartridges are accepted along with most brands including: Brother, Cannon, HP.
More information about this program can be found at;
Kristen Faucher will be coordinating this program this year. If you have any questions, please reach out to her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

Chromebook Repair Protocol
Chromebook Repair Protocol: If your student enters a ticket through the IIQ Helpdesk while at home, they will need to drop off the Chromebook in the library when they come to school the next day. The Tech Department will collect the broken device and perform the repairs. Students may be able to get a loaner device while waiting for their device to be repaired.
When the repairs are done, the student will be alerted via their ticket/email to pick up their device in the library.
Please use this video tutorial for the process of submitting an IIQ Helpdesk ticket.
To report an absence,tardy or dismissal for your student.Please notify McCarthy School by emailing email@example.com or by calling the attendance line at 978-251-5133,extention 4100.~ Thank You ,
