"Thank you to all McCarthy staff and families for supporting the Scholastic Book Fair last week, and to all who volunteered to make the fair successful. See you in the Fall!"
We have started a REMIND account. This is in place at the Higgins Middle school and others. It is a way we can notify you efficiently of upcoming events and news, by a text message. We promise we will only send out important messages. If you'd like to sign up, please TEXT @johnem to the number 81010.
The school doors will be locked after dismissal. Parents picking up students from FKO will call the FKO Director at the number posted on the front door.
If you are late picking up your child please call the office (978 536-5625) as soon as you know you will be late and we will wait in the office with your child.
School hours are 9:00 AM to 2:55 PM for Grades K-5. Students may dropped off beginning at 8:50 AM. If you are driving your grade K-5 children to school, please follow the traffic pattern around the back of the school and drop students off at the side door. There will always be a staff member present. Please do not drop students off at the front of the school.
Arrival: This year, we have more students being driven
to school than we have ever had. We need
your help! In the morning when you are
dropping off, please have your child ready to go so when you pull up, they can
get right out as soon as they can.
Please pull up as far as possible, past the tree next to the sidewalk if
you can. We should be able to offload
seven or eight cars at a time.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO SUPPORTED JANIE AND THE MCCARTHY SCHOOL!!!
