Home 9 Superintendent Updates 9 Parent Update – November 3, 2023

This week’s Parent Update includes:

  • Upcoming Events
  • Re-Envisioning our School Facilities
  • Website Unavailable
  • Vaccine Clinic and COVID Test
  • Weather Information


This is a reminder that we have no school on November 7th due to elections and no school on November 10 in observance of Veteran’s Day.


The School Committee will hear a summary of Option 2B at the November 8 School Committee meeting.

An update of the options has been posted on the website. They are located at the bottom of the home page.  In addition, some documents are included in the School Committee materials from the October meeting, located on the School Committee page.  If anyone needs assistance locating these documents, please feel free to contact your building principal, me, or my administrative assistant Lauren Rice.


The district’s website will be down and unavailable for a period of time beginning tonight, Friday, November 3 at 6:00 pm.  This is to perform upgrades to the system that hosts the site.  Thank you for your understanding.


We have a flu and Covid vaccine clinic today at GHS from 4 pm – 7 pm.  The next date is Nov 9 at Newton School from 4 pm – 7 pm. Preregistration is required so please visit the Health and Wellness page of our website for more information.


As we saw earlier this week, winter weather is possible at any point now.  At times, I may decide to close schools, have an early dismissal, or delay the opening due to weather or other factors.  Any school closures will be shared through School Messenger as well as on TV and the district website. It is very important that you keep your contact information updated.  Please contact the school office if you need to provide a phone number or email change.

Take care
