8th Graders - Check out 8th Grade Section for information regarding "Baby Photo" for your yearbook!
Basketball and Cheerleading (for 6-8 graders) will start in November/early December. Please check out our Sports column and be sure you have an up-to-date physical on file with the nurse, as well as completed paperwork.
SPORTS AND AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
As soon as we receive any notification of cancellation due to weather, we will update the home page of our website immediately. For sporting events/games, it is the home team who decides on cancellation. For practices, it is the coach who will notify the office with their respective cancellations. If there is no update posted, consider the event still "ON".
In the event of cancellation, students will take their regular transportation home at the end of the day.
Are you receiving our weekly agenda, as well as other communications that are forwarded via E-Mail? If not, please call the office @ 978-422-6552, so we can insure that we have the correct email address, etc... We do communicate regularly via our "School Messenger", and we want to be sure all families are receiving this information.
Our goal at Chocksett is to dismiss all students in a safe, timely manner. When picking up your child at the end of the school day - during regular parent pick-up, please pull your car up as far as possible, leaving minimal space between cars, allowing as many cars as possible to create a line. Thank you very much for your attention to this request.
Chocksett Middle School
I care about each and every person in our school.

Absence/Sick Line and Dismissals (978-422-6771)
If your student is sick or will be arriving late, please call the school. Homework requests for students will only be filled starting the third (3rd) day in a row of absences. The request may be left on the answering machine or by emailing the teachers directly. After 8:00 AM, please call the CMS phone line at 978-422-6552. If you receive a phone or email message informing you that your student is marked absent, please call 978-422-6552 and ask to speak to the nurse. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SICK LINE AFTER 8:00 AM. Thank you for your support in this important matter.
Please do not call during the school day for early dismissal,
except in the case of an emergency.
In the interest of "going green" and in recognition that the vast majority of parents are already utilizing PowerSchool Parent Access to monitor student academic progress, we are no longer distributing student progress reports in Grades 6-8. Parents of Grade 5 students will be contacted directly by their child's teacher, if there is a concern that needs to be discussed.
Parents who do not have internet access and wish to receive paper copies of updated academic progress must call the office at 978-422-6552.
Report cards will continue to be distributed on paper as we have traditionally done.
Office News, on the left side of your screen, has the list of places to check for school cancellations, delays, and early dismissals due to inclement weather. In addition, a Connect-Ed message will go out to all students' families, unless they are on the "Do Not Call" list.
