P-EBT Cards

P-EBT cards were loaded on December 30th for the months of October and November. Hopefully, most families received this money for groceries. Please see the flyer below. If you did get money, you do not need to do anything.

If you did not receive this money, please do the following:

Contact me at jmccrevan@lowell.k12.ma.us this weekend. The next upload to the state is on January 11th. Please contact me to see if you are on the list. Usually, the problem is due to moving to a different home. Although I cannot get you backdated money, I can make sure you get future money.

Big picture

Early Release Day

We have an Early Release Day scheduled for Wednesday, January 13th. Students will be released from school at 12:00 pm. Allied Arts will be an asynchronous video for all grade levels. Teachers will have professional development for the remainder of the day. This month we are focusing on our year-long goal of Cultural Competency with Dr. Uy from UMASS Lowell.

Grade 4 Interviews

With Mr. Deshler's retirement, we will be hiring a grade 4 teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. The grade 4 vacancy is created from Mrs. Parisi moving to grade 3 next school year. We are looking for two parents to join our hiring committee. All interviews will be through Zoom between 3:45 - 6:00 pm on the following days.

  • January 14th
  • January 19th
  • January 20th

If you are interested in participating on this committee, please contact me. Priority will be given to correct grade 3 families since these students will have the new teacher next school year.

Flu Shot - Required - EXTENSION

All students in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will be required to get a Flu Shot to attend in-person school by February 28, 2021. The state government extended this date. We will have several flu shot clinics in the city to help with this requirement. If you want your child to be in school at any point this year, please get the flu shots sooner than later. Please provide documentation of the shot to Nurse Jessica by calling the school or emailing her directly at jhumphrey@lowell.k12.ma.us.
