The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District is in need of a new strategic plan. This plan outlines our collective vision, core values, and goals for students, staff and families. In her role as the Director of Curriculum and Assessment, Dr. Marlene Correia is facilitating the process and seeking your valuable input. We invite you to complete the Family Strategic Planning Survey to share your thoughts on what we do best and what we can do better.

We have reached the 100th school day milestone and the winter weather continues to cooperate. The school district will continue to use the One-Call Communication System to provide families with the necessary school cancellation or delay information. School decisions will be based on multiple reliable sources. The safety of our students and staff remains my top priority.    

The FLRSD hosted our second annual FreeLake Music Fest 2019 at the Middle School  today. What a successful event coordinated by entire music department. All five schools were represented and the day long event culminated with an afternoon performance in front of family and friends. Please visit our website to view this outstanding performance! Thank you to all the staff for their hard work and dedication as we continue to celebrate our talented musicians.     

Please be reminded that our next school committee meeting will be March 6, 2019 in the ARHS Library at 6:30 p.m. Topics will include the budget, the 2019-20 school calendar, and school choice. I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call  508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or email me at rmedeiros@freelake.org.
