I need your help.

As many of you know, we are having some trouble with our phones.  As a result, I believe we have not received information about some students who have been absent for illness.  Therefore, these students have unexcused absences instead of excused absences (see the calendar handbook p10-11 for the difference).  I will be sending out attendance letters to families with children in excess of 5 unexcused absences next week.  If you have not given us notification of an illness that kept your child home this year, please do so on Monday.  You may do this by emailing our school nurse, Mrs. Denapoli, at:

ACCESS testing:

ACCESS is the state assessment we use to measure language acquisition and proficiency for students who are still learning English as their second language.
