Community Service

 

  • iCan Bike Camp in Groton, MA is looking for volunteers to help children ages eight and up, as well as teens and adults with special needs, to learn how to ride a two‑wheel bike. Each camper needs two volunteers to assist them in learning this skill. Volunteers need to be at least 14 years old. Camp takes place over April Vacation at Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA.  Check their website for more details.

Please have your child drop off the form at the Main Office.
  • Attendance:  Attendance is taken for each class. Please be sure to be present for every period of the day.

Message from the Nurse:


Dear 
Parents/Guardians:

PHYSICALS: All 7th and 10th graders are required to submit an updated physical.  Students in other grades are encouraged to submit updated physicals as well.

ITEMS DROPPED OFF:  

 

  • Parents and caregivers are asked to leave the item(s) in the main office window. Please make sure all items are clearly labeled with your student’s name. The main office secretary will notify the student to pick-up their belongings.  Please note that an all-call is made throughout the school at 10:42 a.m. and the students will pick up their item.  We do not interrupt classes for individual students.

 

Dismissals

  • The reasons for excusing dismissals will follow the same guidelines that are set forth for absences.  Any student who is going to be dismissed must turn in a note to the office the morning of the dismissal or can be emailed to dismissals@geogetown.k12.ma.us.   The note must be signed by a parent/guardian, and must state the time and the specific reason for the dismissal.  Any dismissals that do not meet the guidelines that are set forth by the state regulations will result in an unexcused absence.  Dismissals via a phone call can only be accepted for emergency situations.  All dismissals due to illness must go through the school nurse.
  • Any student who gets dismissed before 11:00 a.m. and does not return to school will be counted as absent, and will not be eligible for that day’s co-curricular events.  In addition, dismissals that do not meet the criteria for excused absences will not be excused, resulting in the loss of participation in co-curricular events for that day.  Any dismissals due to illness also preclude the student’s participation in co-curricular activities.
