From the office:
Go Green with us, and access our blog at   In the future, weekly newsletters, and important communications  will be posted on the blog.
School Attendance: If your child is going to be absent, you MUST call the School Absentee Line at 781-273-7649 BEFORE 8:10 am on the day of the absence.  An answering machine will record your message.  Please leave your Child’s name, grade level, teacher’s name and reason for the absence.

Note Required for a Change in Dismissal Plans:
In the interest of safety, on any day that a child’s routine transportation plans are altered, a note must be written and signed by a parent or guardian to the classroom teacher to describe the change.  Occasionally an emergency situation arises during the day that necessitates a change.  If such an emergency should arise and it is necessary to change your child’s transportation plans during the school day, please contact the office by phone (781-270-1721) before your child’s scheduled lunchtime to ensure that his or her teacher receives the information. (Do not call the teacher directly, or email requests, as these messages may not be received before the end of the day.) Please understand that due to the busy-ness of dismissal time and our concern about student safety, students can not be dismissed without your sending in a note to the teacher or notifying the office before students’ scheduled lunch time. Buses are held until all children are accounted for, impacting the timely departure of the buses and students’ arrival time at home.  Thank  you in advance for helping us to keep “Memorial Kids” safe by informing us of changes well before dismissal time.

From the Nurse:
All medication required during school hours is to be brought to the school by a parent/guardian. Children are not to transport their own medication. Medication, both prescribed and over the counter, needs to be in properly labeled bottles or containers. A signed order form from your doctor is also required for each medication. These order forms can be obtained in the nurse’s office. Please Contact Lynn Sakey at (781) 270-1724 if you have any questions.

From the Nurse:
We all know accidents happen and a quick change of clothes can make a difference in your day:
If you have any clothing that you are willing to donate to the    nurse's office.
Please feel free to send it in with your child marked for donation to the nurse.

Cori Forms
If you are planning to volunteer or chaperone during this school year (and we hope you will), you must be CORI’d. You can do this by visiting the Superintendent’s office to fill out a CORI (Criminal Offender Records Information) form.  You will also need to bring a government-issued photo ID (a license will do). The Superintendent’s Office is located in the business office at the Burlington High School, 123 Cambridge Street. The entrance is around the back of the school. CORI approvals are good for three years, so if you filled out a CORI during the last two years, it is not necessary to submit a form again for this year. If you are unsure of when your last CORI was done, please call the school office and Mrs. Bogosh or Mrs. Doherty will be happy to help.

BOYS & GIRLS Lacrosse - Grades K-8
There will be an early bird discount for those who register before September 30th.
It is necessary to register spring teams early as our league requires us to submit rosters well in advance of the start of the season so they may have enough time to set up all the schedules.  We need to know how many children are playing so we can register the correct number of teams to the league. We encourage everyone to register early so you will not be put on the waiting list.
 Registration is online only at:
Team Sizes Limited! Registration Deadline is Jan 1 2017!
