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.

Please visit our website to register your family, pay your dues online, and sign up for volunteer opportunities.  Information about the many ways that you can help the PTO are on the website.  We look forward to the events that are coming up during this school year.  
First meeting is: November 2nd 7pm in the Library
