REMINDER to Parents of 7th Grade Students: State Law MANDATES that students entering Grade 7 must have an updated Tdap and documentation of varicella (chicken pox) or current varicella immunizations.
The Nurse has still NOT received proof of these immunizations for several 7th Grade students. Please send in this documentation ASAP to avoid noncompliance with Massachusetts Department of Public Health Regulations and exclusion from school.

NEW BUS POLICY - EFFECTIVE 9/8/15
OUR HANDBOOK STATES THAT CONVENIENCE BUS TRANSPORTATION WILL NOT BE PROVIDED. In the past we have reviewed availability on a bus and provided and approved students switching buses when we could. However, this year many of our buses are at maximum capacity. We will therefore not allow ANY TRANSPORTATION CHANGES TO ANOTHER BUS, including for day care purposes. If you must make a regular transportation change - that will occur throughout the school year, on a regular rotation, you must go thru the bus company at 774-234-0678. If you need for your child to go to another child's home after school - for any reason, you must make arrangements for parent pick-up at the end of the school day. Should day care be required on our half day sessions, please review the school calendar and prepare your arrangements in advance. Parent pick-up on half days will be at 11:50.
We apologize for the inconvenience , as always, our goal is maintaining child safety at school, as well as to and from school.
Thank you for your consideration to this situation.
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.
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.
