Friday Night Updates

April 3, 2020

Dear Families:

On Sunday, I will send information regarding the upcoming “Phase 2” of our virtual learning opportunities. Teachers will also share changes with students during next week as appropriate.  I am so appreciative of the ongoing efforts of the faculty as they support students.

Please continue to send student work to the email address below as described in today’s earlier email:

District-Wide Service Project 

We have been working closely with Emerson and a number of residential facilities in town.  We would love to have pictures, letters of thanks and encouragement, artwork, etc. to share with them so they know they are appreciated or thought of during this difficult time.  Please consider sending photos or scans of student work to this email address so we can create presentations, messages, and other creative virtual ways of reaching out.  Please know that anything submitted would be considered public and might be used in social media, etc.  All work can be submitted to  This is an activity for students of all ages!

MCAS is currently being discussed at the State House.  We await the next steps after the House’s vote on Thursday night.

I hear the sun is back tomorrow!
