Q and A's

 

updated 2/8/2018 at 3:15 pm

 

5th and 6th Grade Parents:There will be no late bus on Tuesday and Thursday next week (2/13 and 2/15). All after school activities are cancelled.  Students will need to be dismissed at 2:15.

 

Considering that the recent information (posted above) has delayed our return to Page School. We want to inform parents that the open ended return date has us working through multiple paths to address not only our day-to day schedules and routines as well as plans for several one time programs that are coming up in each of the buildings.  Plans around programs such as MCAS, Pre-K registration, and Kindergarten screening will all be communicated as the time draws nearer.

Parents, please make note that any updates in regards to the Page renovation project will be coming from the town of West Newbury as noted in the above letter sent out on January 5th.  There are no updates at this time.  Please check out the daily announcements below to see how the children are doing in each of our host schools. 

 

For our parents who wait in the pick-up line at the Middle School, please keep your flashers on as you move through the line so that high school parents, students and staff know to drive around you as they exit the driveway.  Students should only enter vehicles from the passenger side.

 

Our weekly morning open-ended conversation time hosted by Mr. Gray on Wednesday mornings is still in effect over our transition in the new buildings.  Any parent who would like to meet about elements relevant to their child can do so by dropping in at the Donaghue School in Merrimac on Wednesday mornings between 8:00-9:00 starting on January 31st.  It would be helpful to RSVP to Mr. Gray a day ahead of time considering the current meeting space needs throughout the buildings.  

 

In an effort to maintain strong social-emotional supports for all of our students while we are spread across the district, we have enlisted the help of our harboring schools’ support teams for the coming weeks. These are staff members who your child may interact with in place of Page staff such as Megan Arel, Caitlin Silva, Lorraine Lord, Nurse Courtney or Mr. Gray.  If you are in need of any assistance while your child is at our host schools, please feel free to reach out as well. 

 

At the Middle School:

Paul Tentindo – School Psychologist/TIP support

Jo Burritt – Guidance Counselor

Brittany Moore – Guidance Counselor

Monique Landry – Nurse

Ken Kelley - Principal

 

For the Merrimac Schools:

LeeAnne Davis – Student Support Coordinator

Sarah Pond – Guidance Counselor

Amy Brennan – School Psychologist

Kathie Sullivan – Special Education Team Coordinator

For all parents in grades K-4, the morning bus routes will be pushed 5 minutes earlier to accommodate the differences in schedules for our time at Sweetsir and Donaghue. 

 

For all parents in grades 5-6, the late bus from the PRMS will not be making stops at homes and will revert back to predetermined spots along the route, but has added a stop at the Page school parking lot.  Parents can arrange to either 1. pick up their child at 3:15 (preferred) 2. tell your child which stop below to disembark from, or 3. have them dropped off at Page (parents must be there for your child to disembark)  The routes are below.

Also for 5th and 6th-grade parents.  Seeing the cafeteria known as Shangri La, I wanted to make you aware of their procedures as you might want to have a conversation with your child about monetary limits or moderation when buying lunch and other add-ons. Please read below.

http://pentucketrsd-ma.schoolloop.com/file/1272096447872/1313210754318/2889002309074654464.pdf

 

Above is the link to the Middle and High school prices.

The Page Children are still only being charged $2.50 for lunch 5th and 6th Grade is following the Middle school meal plan!

 

At the middle school we do allow children to "add on" extra servings of the meal or a second slice of pizza at an addition cost of $2.25 (a "second" lunch). IF they have the available funds.

 

Bagged chips/snacks, cookies and ice cream are also allowed. There is no limit unless specified by the parent or guardians.

 

 

 

For all parents in grade 4: We have a new structure to address grade 4 specials over this time.  It is important that everyone as your child was told which team they are on today. All grade 4 specials will be at their regularly scheduled time.  The fourth grade will be split into two groups, team A and team B.  Team A will have Art for one week and Team B will have PE for the week. Ms. Manning will pull students each day based on their instrument or chorus.  There will not be ensembles while at Donaghue.  Students should only bring their instrument one time and take them home on the same day. 

 

Monday- Brass

Tuesday- Chorus

Wednesday- Percussion

Thursday-String

Friday- Woodwind

 

The groups A and B will rotate each week.

Jan 15th: Art A, PE B

Jan 22nd:  Art B, PE A

Jan 29th: Art A, PE B

Feb 5th: Art B, PE A

Feb 12th: Art A, PE B

Feb 26th: Art B, PE A
