Raise the Bar

The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District FY 20 budget season is underway and we will need your support more than ever as we look to provide appropriate resources to meet our growing educational needs. We have already completed 1/4 of this academic year, today is our 43rd school day. I will keep all stakeholders updated throughout the budget season on upcoming meetings and events. The next Regional Finance Committee meeting will be Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the ARHS library.      

As the cold weather and holiday season approaches, the school district will continue to use the One-Call Communication System to provide families with the necessary school cancellation or delay information.  As we complete the first term, the school district is once again using a web-based program, Parents Plus Portals, where parents will be able to access information about their child’s educational progress and grades. Parents of students in grades 4-12 will have access to the portal. Parents or students with questions on accessing their Portal accounts may email plusportal@freelake.org.

Please be reminded that Tuesday, November 6, 2018  is Election Day and a Professional Development Day for all staff members.  There will be no school for students. Our next regularly scheduled school committee meeting for the 2018-19 school year will be next  Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the ARHS Library. The following Monday, November 12, 2018 there will be no school in honor of Veteran’s Day. Please be sure to turn back your clocks this weekend.  I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence, as we raise the bar for all students.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call  508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or email me at rmedeiros@freelake.org
