Reminder from the Nurse

Per Massachusetts state guidelines, students in grade 4 must submit an updated physical to the school nurse. If you have not done so already, please contact the school nurse so that all required documents are included in your child's health folder.

As the weather is getting nicer, I would like to remind families of the dress code as outlined by the Elementary Handbook, "Clothing that is too revealing is inappropriate in a school setting. Students will use good judgment regarding appropriate attire in school." This would include midriff (half) shirts, crop tops and short skirts as well as inappropriate footwear such as open toe sandals, flip flops or slides. Administrators will determine what constitutes appropriate attire and may require a student to change or cover up as necessary and appropriate

Please review the protocols related to illness on Woburn Public Schools website

Under "School Health Info" there is a link to guidelines to determine when a child should stay home called "Too sick for school". This is an outline for when a child should stay home. As always, if your child has symptoms of Covid-19 we ask that you test them prior to sending to school. If you need to report positive case to the school nurse you can email me at

Goodyear Bus Update May 2023

The Woburn Public Schools uses the BusRight app so families and staff can monitor the location of their students' school bus. More in formation is available in the WPS BusRight newsletter.

Please complete the Goodyear Bus Form to receive an invitation for the WPS BusRight app.

The last update to the bus schedule was at the beginning of January. Families will be notified of any changes to the schedule. Additionally, families may request a change by submitting a Bus Stop Request Form.

All students must follow guidelines for safety and appropriate behavior on the school bus. This information is available in the Woburn Public Schools Elementary Handbook. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in consequences up to and including suspension from riding the bus.

We understand that dismissal schedules may need to change at times. Please communicate any changes in dismissal to the school office by 2:00pm each day to ensure that the message is shared with staff prior to dismissal.

Traffic Update

Thank you for observing the traffic signs and for driving cautiously around the school. With spring approaching, we want to share some new information and some reminders:

  • The side parking lot next to the gym is closed at 8:00am and 2:30pm for arrival and dismissal. We will be blocking access to the lot during these times. Please continue to use the drop off lane or park on the side streets if needed.
  • With additional staff now at the Goodyear, we ask that families park on the side streets in the morning so staff will have access to the limited number of parking spaces available around the school.
  • The drop off lane has been moving well when students exit the vehicle quickly along the sidewalk and vehicles keep moving.
  • Vehicles should avoid passing on the left in the drop off lane. There have been instances of vehicle damage due to unsafe driving in the past.

Food Assistance Program

The Woburn Council of Social Concern and Winchester Hospital have teamed up to support students and families who are in need of food assistance. The backpack program provides a bag full of food to students to take home each Friday. If you would like to utilize this community resource, please complete the form below.
