    With the closing of the brick and mortar school building for the remainder of the school year there are many issues and items that we are working on. One of these issues is the returning of student's belongings. 
    In an effort to return student items that were left in the classrooms when we were last here the following plan has been put into place.
    ** Each class has been designated a specific time slot of one hour
    ** During your allotted time slot please drive into the circle and remain in your car
    ** A staff member will retrieve the items that have been put together for the students
    ** Please open the trunk if possible, and the staff member will put the items in the trunk
    ** If the trunk is not an option please put the back window down and the items will be placed on the seat
    ** After the transfer of your child's items please leave the circle
    ** This transfer needs to adhere to all safety precautions and protocols and will be a touch-less exchange
    ** Mrs. Stolts will be here giving medication back to families on these days and will follow the same procedures
    The dates and times are as follows:
    Thursday May 7;
    Mrs. Bushell 9:00-10:00
    Ms. Harrison 10:00-11:00
    Ms. Ferriera 11:00-12:00

  • School Report Card

    Posted by William Courville on 2/10/2020 1:00:00 PM


    February 13, 2020

    Dear Parent or Guardian:
    Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child’s report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, the school’s report card is designed to show families how our school is doing in different areas. A link to our school’s report card is available here

    Report cards are designed to be useful tools for everyone connected to our school. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the school is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Community and education leaders can use the information to better understand how to support students and our school.

    If you have questions about our school’s report card, or would like to become involved in school improvement activities, please contact us at any time. To see our district’s report card or to search for other schools’ report cards, visit reportcards.doe.mass.edu.

    We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our school. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and school, and we are grateful for your continued support. For more information about what we are doing to improve student achievement please feel free to contact us at any time.

    Help your child be a School HERO!




    On time

       Dear Parents and Guardians:                                                   

         The school year is half way over! Our expectations continue to be high as we know these students are ready for the rest of the year.

           Student attendance and tardiness are still being monitored closely. Any school time missed can affect your child’s performance in school. According to the Massachusetts DOE, a student must be in school for  at least half the school day to be counted as  present. If a student is dismissed before NOON for any reason, this counts an dismissed/absence. Research shows that missing 10% of school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month & that’s known as chronic absence.

         Please help your child arrive to school on time.

        We will also continue to check questionable residency. If it is believed that a false address was used to enroll a child, and the family lives outside of Swansea or in a different Swansea district, our School Resource Officer will be informed and the matter investigated fully. Thank you!
