MCAS DATES 2016
TEACHER EMAIL: all staff email are the firstname.lastname@example.org. (ie. email@example.com) If you need help accessing a teacher's email, please contact the main office at 781-314-5590.
Attendance Policy: Please remember that only a doctor's note excuses a student medical absence or tardy. No credit (N grade) is given on the 9th absence in a Cluster subject and on the 5th in a non-cluster subject.
Drop Off/Pick Up Policy: please remember to drop off and pick up students in the rear of the building, near the field. For safety's sake, we want to minimize the number of students in the faculty parking area and near the busses. Also, please remember, students should only cross Church Street at the Crossing Guard at the corner of School Street. Please don't ask students to cross outside the crosswalk to meet you.
