Dear Memorial School Families,


I am writing to let you know that we practiced a lockdown drill at school this morning.
 Students are very comfortable practicing drills that require them to exit a building quietly
and quickly (Fire Drills). We also practice drills that require them to stay quiet and safe
inside a building (Lockdown). Classroom teachers have reviewed this information with your
child/children in a calm and reassuring manner.  Practicing these procedures makes everyone
feel more confident and comfortable. The entire drill was completed in approximately 10 minutes.
 Should your child or you have questions and concerns about our safety procedures at Memorial
School, please feel free to contact me at 781-270-1721.

Thank you,
Deb Dressler
Principal Memorial School

Request the Return of Overdue Library Books
Cathi Myer, our Memorial School Librarian, is asking that overdue library books be returned as soon as possible.  We have several books that are highly sought after and other students are anxiously waiting for these books. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Myer directly at cmyer@bpsk12.org or 781.273.7656.  Thank you.









NOTES FROM THE OFFICESchool 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.























Just a reminder from the nurse as we approach cold and flu season, please help us track illness trends at school by letting us know why your child is absent when you call.
