ALICE School Safety

As you know, we have already had our first fire drill of the school year. In the coming weeks, I anticipate holding a school safety drill. This protocol is the latest emergency response program, is nationally recognized and has been adopted by school districts throughout the country.


As always, we are sensitive of the developmental needs of our students and scenarios will always be presented in an age appropriate manner. I hope the below video will be helpful in discussing the drills at home with your children.

On behalf of TES, I'd like to extend my appreciation for the continuous collaboration of the Tyngsborough Police Department. Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to call me.


Student Information Form

This is a reminder that Tyngsborough Public Schools is now collecting yearly information updates through an online Student Information Form. Most of the information on this form is pre-populated with what we currently have on file. Please review and make changes where necessary. If you have multiple children, you will receive a separate email for each.


This form is now past due.


Please note that failure to complete this form may result in your child not receiving over the counter medications from the school nurse and will affect their ability to attend field trips.
