Superintendent's November 2, 2018 Newsletter

School Committee Meeting in Boston:  The School Committee held its October 23 meeting at the Shelburne Community Center in Roxbury.

We thank BAR for their continued generosity and support for our students.

The first few weeks of school have begun smoothly, and all six of our schools report a great start to the new school year.

We thank you for your patience on the road and your caution with students in the crosswalks.
