Preschool and Kindergarten Registration

Preschool and Kindergarten registration will take place Monday, March 29th – Wednesday, April 7th. Drop-off and mail-in registration is available during that time. Information about the process and the required documents are posted on the district website. Please visit the website at or call the office if you have any questions.


Communication with Mrs. Hilliard, School Nurse

Communication with the school nurse is imperative as we continue to encounter the challenges of COVID and navigate through the winter months. If anyone in your home is symptomatic or awaiting test results, it is strongly encouraged you do not send your child to school. The Massachusetts travel advisory is still in effect. If traveling outside Massachusetts, individuals must quarantine for ten days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72- hours prior to arrival in Massachusetts. If you have any questions or need to speak with Mrs. Hilliard regarding your child’s health, please call the health office directly at 978-694-6026 or email her at


March 31, 2021 – Remote Learning Day

On Wednesday, March 31, 2021 ALL students will participate in a remote learning day in a combined AM/PM session during the AM hours of 8-10:30am. There will be no in-person learning on this day for all students.


Winter Clothing

I would like to remind families to have their child wear a warm winter jacket, hat and mittens/gloves. We go outside throughout the day when temperatures cooperate and we want students to stay warm. Please make sure to label their clothing as well.


March Community Project – Good Deeds Coupons

This month our students will be learning about the importance of making good choices, practicing self-control, and being helpful to others. We are asking our students to practice good deeds at home. When you see your child making good choices, practicing self-control, or being helpful, please complete a coupon and return it to school. Each child can submit up to 4 coupons by March 24th to be entered into a raffle.
