*Our Youth Council has been working with Dan McGrath, Recreation Director, to address the trash being left by students at the Galvin courts & playing fields throughout the school year & summer. A few of the High School Youth Council members are going to be facilitating a focus group for 7th & 8th graders after school TODAY in the 7th grade project room.  The goal will be to understand how youth can be part of the solution for dealing with this long-standing issue.

*Review of Dismissal Procedures: If you should need to dismiss your student during the school day, please send your child in with a note, and have them report to the main office. We will log them in our dismissal book and give them a pass. This will help to alleviate disruptions to classrooms during teaching time. You can still email the teachers, however if that is all you do it may not be transferred to the main office. Also, if you just email the main office staff or Administration, due to the volume of traffic in the office in the morning, an email may not be seen right away. Parents/Guardians MUST come to the main office to sign their child out. Students cannot just walk out on their own. Thank you for your understanding.

*A gentle reminder, for the safety of all staff and students, parents should not be exiting through the parking lot after dropping children off coming from North Avenue. Parents need to exit the parking lot onto Armory Street. Thank you for your cooperation.

*Also, just another quick reminder, students should not be entering the building before 7:00am.
