UPDATED TARDY POLICY

Although we understand unforeseen circumstances can occur which prevent a student from arriving to school on time, Tardiness often results in missed important information in the classroom, as well as interruption of the learning environment for the teacher and other students.

Excused tardies include illness, death in the family, medical appointments, unforeseen emergency, (to be determined by the Administration) or prior arrangement with the Principal. Without a phone call or a note, your child’s tardy will be marked unexcused.

As a reminder, our school day begins at 7:45 AM. We appreciate your cooperation in having your student arrive on time to school. If you have any questions, or if we can be of assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to contact one of us via email Malissa Feragne / Edward Campolongo or by phone (413.782.8031).

There will be a Christmas Concert for Grades K-8 on Friday, December 10 at 7:00 PM in the new gym. Elementary students should report to their classrooms by 6:45 PM and middle school students should report to their classrooms at 6:30 PM where they will remain until it is time for their class to perform. The students will then return to their classrooms for the remainder of the concert. Each class will perform separately to ensure proper social distancing.

*This performance is mandatory for the Middle School Choir and is worth 40% of their grade.
