Religious Holiday Accomodations
September 23, 2019
As you’ll remember, the School Committees adopted a Religious Holiday Accommodation Policy. The purpose of the policy (see attached) was to guide us in how to support students during times when school related requirements may not be possible.
The goal of the policy is to foster communication between the schools and families. We encourage you to help us to be aware of what your child needs. Notice to teachers ahead of time can be very beneficial in helping students to be at ease if they are absent from school or need additional time for assignments.
We look to create a culture of awareness, sensitivity, flexibility and open communication.
Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
Dr. Laurie Hunter, Superintendent
