School Messages

Grade 2 Families-We hope you’ve had the opportunity to sign up for a Google / Chromebook workshop on Monday or Tuesday. If you still need to sign up please look for a previous email from your child’s classroom teacher. On Wednesday morning students will need to know how to log into Google Classroom and access the live MEET. Attending one of the workshop sessions will teach them what they need to know.

Grab and Go Meals-Please see the following information from Burrillville Youth Nutrition:

  • Beginning on September 14th, Grab-n-Go meals will be provided at the front of William L. Callahan School between 11:00 and 12:30 and at the back of the Burrillville Middle School between 11:00 and 12:30. These meals are free to any students enrolled in the Burrillville School Department.

Burrillville Youth Nutrition-The attached is more information on grab and go lunches as well as the cashless system we use for purchasing lunch when school starts back in person over the next few weeks. Please see the attached: Grab and Go Lunches and My SchoolBucks

Free and Reduced Lunch Application- This year the lunch application is all electronic. Please make sure you fill this out for our school regardless if you qualify for free and reduced lunch. Our school can get federal aid based on families filling out these applications. Please see attached on how to access application: Free and Reduced Application

School Year Expectations-This year will definitely be different as we move forward through these uncertain times. We will all get through this together with lots of understanding and cooperation. Things will definitely not be perfect and that is ok. Please remember that whether your child is learning from their home or here in school, the expectation is a full school day. If you are at home virtually your child is expected to be connected from 8:45-3:00. With that said, each teacher will have their own schedule with breaks built in and time for independent work. Please bear with us as we move through these first few weeks of school and please do not worry if you have issues connecting to your child’s teacher.

Few Dates to remember:

  • September 14, 2020- First Day of School

  • September 17, 2020- Open House

  • September 21, 2020- State Professional Development Day
