This is the first Monday Message of the school year! I use this message to communicate with families every Monday. I usually like to include pictures from the week and an interesting article. As this is the first Monday Message, it is "all business".
Breakfast Program at Lowell
Each school has a before school breakfast program from 7:45-8:15am. The process for payment is the same as lunch payment and students who qualify for free/reduced lunch also qualify for free/reduced breakfast. Menus can be found on the district main webpage under "food menus". Breakfast is such an important part of student's learning! If you have any questions, please contact our food service director, Stephen Marshall at 617-926-7756.
Dismissal forms were due last Friday. Please turn them in as soon as possible if you have yet to do so.
Dropping Off and Picking Up
Some gentle reminders about drop off and pick up.
-In the drop off car line, please pull all the way to down to the second crosswalk/last yellow cone.
-In the drop off car line, DO NOT DRIVE AROUND THE CAR IN FRONT OF YOU. Some cars have been doing this and it is extremely dangerous as there could be children crossing ahead.
-Do not block neighborhood driveways or fire hydrants.
-Do not park in staff parking lots.
