What to do when your child will not attend school?

Please call the Main Office 617.349.6575 (press 0 when you hear the speaking voice) to report that your child/children will not be in school before 9AM. You can also inform your child’s teacher as well, however if your child’s teacher is also absent and the Main Office does not get the message, you will receive and automated call stating that your child has an UNEXCUSED absence from school.



What to do if picking your child up early from school?
Please make sure to inform your child’s teacher either by sending in a note or speaking directly to the teacher. If you have more than one child being picked up early please inform each teacher. You must come to the Main Office to sign your child out and the Main Office will call the classroom and have the child come and meet you at the office.



What to do if your child’s afternoon transportation plan is being changed?

You must call the classroom teacher or the Main Office by 2PM. Or if you know of the change before you send you child to school send in a note. Our number one priority is to keep the students safe and make sure they get from school to their afterschool destination; last minute transportation changes make this challenging to do.



What to do in case of an emergency during school time?

There will be a recorded message on the outgoing voice mail at the main office (617.349.6575). There are school staff that are emergency callers who will begin to call families.

Information can be obtained via the CPS website, or the citywide link line 617.349.6513. The City also has the capability of taking over all cable stations in an emergency. You can use the link line to check on snow cancellations.




Where to find your child’s item that came to school but never came back home?

The Lost & Found is located in the school cafeteria. You can find items found somewhere in the building or left outside along the back wall, more toward the right hand corner (closer to the windows). Each year lots of items get “found” and placed in the Lost & Found, however the pile seems to grow and grow and grow. So if your child has lost an item please come in and check the Lost & Found. Please note: We donate all unclaimed items over December, February, April Breaks and at the end of the school year.

When are School Pictures?

Individual student picture day is October 11th. Students must bring with them the order form and payment when their picture is taken. No late orders accepted.

Individual student retake day is usually in November/December. This is an opportunity for all those students who were missing on individual picture day to be photographed. It is also an opportunity to have photos retaken if the original is unsatisfactory. The original photo packet must be brought back in full at this time

Class picture day is usually in the spring in early May.
