Beware of Street Paving- Expect Delays

Good afternoon! I was asked by Highway Surveyor Peter Durkee  to let you know that there may be delays Thursday and Friday due to street paving.

Thursday September 19-  Thurlow Street

Friday  September 20-  Nelson Street

If you must travel in the vicinity of these streets, be aware that travel might be slower. The bus company has been informed and accommodations will be made for the buses as they complete their routes.  The roads in town that have already been paved look great and we all appreciate your understanding as this process  continues. I will make you aware of other information when I receive it from the Highway Department. Thank you!

One More Triple E Spraying Announcement

Tomorrow  night Thursday September 5th is the Middle High School Open House.  Recently parents received an e-mail letting them know  that the town will  spraying  the schools grounds  and fields  for mosquitoes tomorrow night to stay ahead of the Triple E virus. We have received a number of inquiries from people asking if it  is safe to spray when people are in the school  attending Open House  so  I want to let you know that Mike Anderson, the Director of Buildings and Grounds spoke with the town and they have agreed to spray the Middle High School  after the event has concluded. There will be no safety risk and I am looking forward to seeing MHS parents at Open House tomorrow night . If you have any questions, please let me know.

 

Welcome Back to School

I am so excited that our students are coming back to school tomorrow after what I hope was a wonderful summer for all of you!  While it often difficult to say goodbye to summer,  there is nothing more energizing than the promise and excitement of beginning another new year filled with learning, making friends and having fun together.  The staff returned today for our opening ceremonies and our first professional development session of the year which got us all excited about welcoming students back tomorrow.  As I begin my 13th year in Georgetown and my 40th year in education, I feel so blessed to lead this wonderful school district and to have the opportunity to work with your children and you as partners in the educational process. I look forward to a great year and I hope all of your children have a wonderful start tomorrow!

Mosquito Update From Town Hall

With the recent positive reading for the EEE virus in mosquitoes in nearby Boxford , there has understandably been concern raised about what is Georgetown doing to take precautions. I have included the link that was recently posted on the town’s website so you can have the most up to date information.  We are following all precautions and you might want to do the same at home.  If anything further changes, I will let you know and if you have any questions, please let me know. Enjoy Labor Day weekend and I can’t wait to see your children next Wednesday!
