THANK YOU - While school has not been in session during summer, our staff has been busy teaching in the Extended School Year program and Summer School, participating in professional learning and preparing for another exciting year. Thank you to everyone who has been engaged in these important activities.

We also want to express a special thanks to our entire facilities department and staff for all of the work they are doing to prepare our schools and classrooms for the fall.  This summer saw the completion of the Boardwalk Campus parking lots and fields, a major asbestos remediation project at Conant, and ongoing work at all of our schools.  

UNIVERSAL FREE MEALS - We are excited that Massachusetts recently became the 8th state in the nation to permanently provide free meals to all students!  You can learn more about this and our nutritional program on the website

PARENT SQUARE - This Fall, we are launching ParentSquare, a new communication tool designed to streamline and improve how families receive information from us.  You do not need to do anything now and you will continue to receive email, text and phone communication from us like you always have.  You will soon be able to download an application that will allow for streamlined two-way communication.  We will follow-up in mid-September with more information about this exciting transition.

ACTON-BOXBOROUGH RESOURCE CENTER - We are also excited to share the opening of the Acton-Boxborough Resource Center.  The A-B Resource Center is a joint venture between ABRSD and the Acton-Boxborough United Way to provide ongoing support and resources to families from the time they enter our schools through graduation.

We hope you enjoy the last few days of summer and we look forward to seeing everyone back beginning August 30th!
