03. What is the procedure for absences and being late?

If you know your child will be late to school, please call the Attendance Line by 8AM on the day they are late. A student’s tardiness will remain unexcused unless we are contacted by a parent/guardian.

Attendance Line: 617-993-2001

Use the Attendance Form

If the school does not hear from parents or a guardian, school personnel will make efforts to contact them. Students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will be considered tardy and must sign in at the main office to receive a pass.

Please note: If a student is absent from school, he or she may not participate in after school or evening activities on that day without prior approval from a building administrator.

04. What is the typical school day like?

Prior to 7:45 AM, students in grades 7 and 8 will proceed to and remain in the cafeteria. At 7:45, all students proceed to their lockers and then to their homerooms. School begins at 7:55 AM with homeroom and morning announcements. School dismissal at 2:25 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays (School dismisses at 1:15 PM on Wednesdays)

At dismissal students participating in after school activities or meeting with a teacher may report to the appropriate room. All students who are not in the care of an adult are expected to pack up their materials and report to buses or the front exit for pick up or walking home.

05. Where I can find 7-Day Calendar?

All students participate in a 7-day rotation of classes. The 7-day calendar is color-coded to correspond to the day in the rotation and it has been incorporated into our school calendar which is available online. Please note that in the case of a school cancellation, that day in the rotation will be pushed to the day that school resumes. See the School Calendar

Report cards and Progress reports: In 7th and 8th grades, report cards are distributed four times a year at the end of each marking period. Midway through a grading period, 7th and 8th graders will be given an interim progress report that is also posted online.
