I care about each and every person in our school. I promise to do my best in providing a child centered environment where our children, parents, staff and community members can all experience the excitement of learning.

When sending notes to the office...
Please be sure to include your child's first and last name. Parents and children often have different last names and parental signatures can be difficult to read. Including both names, along with the name of your child's teacher, helps to eliminate any confusion.
Please call 978-422-6771 and PRESS 1 if your child will be absent or late.
This is a telephone answering service to record your child's absence. This number is available from 4:15PM on the previous day until 8:30AM on the day of the absence.
Early Dismissal Procedure
Early dismissal of children can be arranged through the office. Please see that your child brings a note stating
- The reason for dismissal
- The time he or she is to be dismissed
- Who will pick up the child.
No child will be dismissed in the custody of a person other than the parent of the child unless a note has been sent from the parent. Please do not call for early dismissal except in the case of an emergency.
Houghton Handbook Sign-Off
We are off to a great start to our new school year. In order to continue the success for all, we need students to have a full understanding of our school policies. If you and your child have not signed off that you have read and understand the policies outlined in the handbook, please refer to your PowerSchool parent access account and review the necessary documents. If you do not have internet access, please call the office at 978-422-2333 for assistance. Your immediate attention to this request is appreciated.
