Bus Questions

Please direct all questions and concerns regarding A and F Bus by emailing

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.

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.

Healthcare documentation reminders:
  • All students entering 4th grade in September 2017 are required by Massachusetts state law, to have a current physical exam on file with the health office. Any physical exam dated after August 29, 2017 will meet this requirement.
  • Children entering Kindergarten must have all required immunizations and documented physical exam within one year of entry into school prior to 9/11/2017 per Massachusetts state law found in Chapter 76, Section 15 of the General Laws of Massachusetts
