To prepare all students to be life-long learners and responsible citizens

Principal's Pen

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Dear MSES Community Members, 

Ask anyone who works in a school and I will bet they will tell you that not only is March the longest month of the year but it is also the busiest! There is a lot going on during March at MSES to support this claim.  We are also approaching MCAS testing which is scheduled to begin the first week of April and continue for a six-week window into mid May.  Specific grade level testing dates have been placed on the school web site.  I am also sending home a separate parent information letter on Wednesday, March 8th. This letter will have the specific testing dates for homerooms.

Next Generation MCAS Parent Q & A

Medicines  If your child takes medicine during the school day it needs to be delivered to the school nurses by a parent with the prescription label attached.  

Parent Pick-up  If you will be picking up your child from school you must park your car and enter the building from the large parking lot by the cafeteria.  Parents will be able to enter the building at 2:50pm.  The students are dismissed from the cafeteria by staff on duty.  Please form a line to sign out your child.  Parents are not permitted to enter the cafeteria during parent pick up.

If your child will be a regular parent pick up please send in a note the first day of school stating the days you will picking them up.  If you need to place your child on the Parent Pick up List for a specific afternoon please send in a note that morning so we can add them to the sign out sheet.  You may not pick up a child other than your own unless we have written permission of the parent.

There is no parking in the fire lane in the front of the school during the school year. Please use the side lots and enter though the main entrance in front of the flagpoles.
