EMERGENCY AND DIGITAL RESOURCE FORMS NEEDED BY NOVEMBER 9!

Emergency forms were mailed home in September and digital resource forms were mailed home last week. We are missing several forms from families. These are important as they give us up to date information regarding a student's health and contact information along with consent to use digital resources that may be used during classroom instruction.. If you need another copy of your emergency form or the digital resource consent form, please let your child's teacher know and we will send home another copy. We would like all emergency and digital resource forms returned to us no later than November 9.

ABSENCES, TARDIES AND DISMISSALS

It is important that ALL families, regardless of their cohort (Virtual Cohort, Cohort A, Cohort B, and Daily Cohorts) notify their student's teacher when they will be absent, tardy or dismissed. This is important for us in taking attendance for your child. Before or after school hours, you may also call our attendance line to leave a message regarding your child's absence. (508) 261-7525 and press 1 for the attendance line. As always, you can also call the school offices.

Face coverings can be disposable or reusable and will need to fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin, be made with at least two (2) layers of breathable material, fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face, and be secured with ties or ear loops.


Based on guidance from health authorities, the following items below will not be considered appropriate face coverings:
