The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District will reach the 100th Day milestone next week and we continue to use the One-Call Communication System to provide families with necessary safety updates and school cancellation or delay information. The safety of our students and staff remains my top priority this winter.  

The FLRSD hosted our third annual FreeLake Music Fest 2020 at the middle school today.  It was another spectacular event coordinated by the entire music department. All five schools were represented and the day long event culminated with another wonderful afternoon performance in front of family and friends.  Please visit our website to view this excellent event. Thank you to all the staff for their hard work and continued dedication for the arts in our community. 

Our next school committee meeting will be Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at  the FLMS beginning at 6:30 p.m. and the topics will include School Choice. I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence, as we continue to raise the bar for all children.
