 The Safe School Committee would like to remind all of the established drop off and pick up procedures.  As the temperature drops, please provide your child with proper attire for recess and arrival/dropoff.  Any student needing jackets, hats, mittens or any other garment, can see Mrs. Hardy, social worker or Mrs. Valentine, school nurse.


Notice Regarding Safe Arrival & Dismissal
Beginning on the first day of school, safe traffic patterns will be enacted during arrival and dismissal of students. The area in front of the school on Hudson Avenue is only for drop off or pick up, not for parking or standing. Please have children disembark from the car on the right hand side onto the sidewalk and then move the car forward so the next party can drop off. Please do not stop in the traffic lane or double park. If a parent feels the need to walk a child into the building, please park north of the school by the River Park or in the Ford lot and walk back to school. The local police will be assisting in making the pattern a safe one for the children by directing the traffic to move forward smoothly. Drivers who do not comply with the posted traffic rules may be ticketed. Thank you for your help in making arrival and dismissal safe.
