Need for School Nurses

The daily rate is $165.00 for a full school day. Michelle can be reached at 978-649-3115 (option 2) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
OUTSIDE FOOD IN THE SCHOOL
Many times students wish to share food with their peers in school. We try to limit this practice as we have students with allergies to be aware of. If you hope to send in food to school for more than your own child, please check with teachers and our nurse, Michelle Riley. Whenever food is prepared for a project or a surprise, there will be need to be an ingredient list for students and staff to observe.
The TMS/THS Late Bus has begun and will run every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the school year. The bus departs TMS at 4:00pm and will cost $1.00 to ride. Sign-ups and bus tickets will be sold and money will be collected during all lunch periods on that Late Bus Day. The Late Bus schedule and Late Bus routes have been posted under “Transportation/Bus Routes” on the TMS, THS and district websites.
Homework Club has started as well. Students do not need to pay for Homework Club. Homework Club runs in conjunction with the Late Bus, and is held 2:00-4:00pm with a teacher/advisor.
PLEASE NOTE: The Late Bus route does not follow the regular pick-up and drop-off routes. The route will depend on ridership that particular day. The bus company will try to drop the students as close to their homes as possible.
