Important Message From Superintendent Sullivan

In response to yesterday’s awful news from Florida, I would like to reassure you that the safety of your children is always our highest priority. Earlier, our principals reviewed a communication from our local state police liaison, reaffirming how we should respond to any incident similar to the one that just occurred.

Please take the time to read Superintendent Sullivan's letter in its entirety.

Winter Walk to School Day

We invite you to join us for our walk to school day! Every Wednesday in February, we will be walking to the school. For full details, please view our walk to school flyer.

Cafeteria Payments

We encourage you to pay ahead for your child’s meals when possible. The a la carte price for milk is $0.45. You can send cash with your child, or you can prepay online. Please visit the Pay For It website to set up an account. You will need your child’s student identification number, which you can get by contacting Mrs. Ann Annear, kitchen manager, at 413-863-7425.

Attention, Parents!

Attention, parents of students who ride the bus! Sometimes the bus company arrives at a bus stop and a parent/designated adult is not waiting for the student. The bus company needs to know if it is ok to drop off your student in this case. Safety comes first and we want to make sure we are clear on what to do if this situation arises. If it is ok to drop off your student with no adult waiting at the stop, please write a note to the bus company (F.M. Kuzmeskus) stating this information. Your student may give the note to the bus driver. If you have any questions, you can contact Kuzmeskus at 863.2595.
