From the office:
From the Office;  As our New England weather grows colder, please make sure students have the proper outerwear for outdoor recess.  The children will be going out each day, weather permitting.

Attendance:  At this time of year, colds, and sniffles are inevitable, but regular attendance at school is important to your child’s continuing progress.  Excessive absenteeism and tardiness can negatively impact his or her ability to learn and to excel in school.  Please remember that if your child is going to be absent for any reason, please notify us via the School Absentee Line at 781-273-7649 by 8:15am on the day of absence.  

Change of Dismissal Procedures:  On any day that a child’s transportation plans are altered, a note must be written to the classroom teacher to describe the change.  We understand that occasionally, a situation arises during the day that necessitates a change.  If this is necessary, please make every effort to contact the office before your child’s scheduled lunchtime to ensure that your child’s teacher receives the information.  Buses are held until all children are accounted for, so please help us to ensure student safety by keeping us fully informed well before dismissal time.

Halloween Dance Party & I-SCREAM Social:  Come join us for our Halloween Spooktacular on October 30th, from 6:30pm to 8pm at the Memorial School.  

Happenings Around Town:  

From the Board of Health:  During the month of October, the Burlington Board of Health will be providing influenza vaccinations for children ages 6 months - 18 years by appointment only.  Flu injection is available for ages 6 months to 18 years and nasal spray flu mist is available for ages 2 - 18 years.  All children are eligible for free vaccine regardless of insurance status and must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.  To schedule an appointment call 781-270-1955.
