Countdown to opening day...

Hello Lowell Families,

It's a girl!  Principal Elizabeth Kaplan has welcomed a new baby girl, Gabriella,  into her family.

I can feel the first day of school quickly approaching.  Our teachers and staff are busy preparing for the opening of the Lowell School.  We are looking forward to a successful 2014-2015 school year.

Letters and Supply Lists:
We have been having difficulty with our student information system, so many teachers have been unable to access their class lists.  We apologize for the delay in sending out letters or emails to families.  Some teachers may have to send out supply lists on the first day of school rather than mail them ahead of time.

See everyone on Thursday, September 4th!

Ms. Donovan
Acting Principal

Hello Lowell Families...

Hello Lowell Families,

I would like to officially introduce myself; I am Allison Donovan, acting principal of the Lowell School.  For the past two years I have worked as the elementary curriculum coordinator, and prior to that I was a teacher at the Hosmer School.  Ms. Kaplan and I worked throughout the month of July to prepare for her leave, and my transition into the school.  I am excited for the opening of school and looking forward to meeting all of the Lowell students and parents. 

Placement Letters
Placement letters were mailed earlier this week so you should be on the lookout for this letter containing your student’s class assignment for the year.  Ms. Kaplan and I reviewed placements just before her leave, which was the final step in a very careful and thorough process. 

Lowell Facilities Issues
Repairs caused by the damage to the boiler room are underway.  The building is not officially open, but there has been no damage to classrooms.  Our dedicated custodial staff is still able to clean and prepare rooms for the opening of school. 

Registration for new students is on Wednesday, August 27th and the first day for students is Thursday, September 4th.  Kindergarten and pre-k parents should pay special attention to the schedule outlined in your student's placement letter. 

I look forward to meeting you and to a successful start of school.  I can be reached by email at or if you leave a voicemail in Ms. Kaplan’s mailbox, I am able to retrieve it. 

Enjoy the rest of the summer.  See you soon.
