We continue to have some busy days ahead with MCAS testing at all of our schools. The school committee voted to remain a School Choice District for the 2019-20 school year. Information is available for families on our website. In addition, the 2019-20 school calendar was approved. The calendar will also be on our website for planning purposes.  Our last school day is now Tuesday, June 18, 2019 for this current school year.    

Please be reminded that Monday, April 1, 2019 is an early dismissal at all schools for the purpose of professional development for our staff members.  Our next school committee meeting will be Wednesday, April 3, 2019 in the ARHS Library at 6:30 p.m. 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.
