Georgetown SEPAC Request

  • The Georgetown SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) is working on something that could be really powerful!! We are looking for families that would be willing to share a small piece of their story. We feel there is so much to be learned and appreciated by families right here in our community. So many struggle with adversities yet are so resilient and show up every day. We want you all to be proud of who you are and how far you have come!! And if you think you haven’t had a personal struggle, I bet you have helped someone that has. So what do we need from you? I’m so glad you asked! Send us pictures, pictures of your family/friends, share your diagnosis (if you’re comfortable doing so), if you do not have a diagnosis please share how you have helped someone in your community, share your passions/your strengths…show us who you are!! We will take it and put it all into a slideshow to show your community who you are and celebrate the diversity of our youth right here in Georgetown!! Please email us at georgetown.ma.sepac@gmail.com by October 31st.

Community Service

 

 


ITEMS DROPPED OFF:  

 

  • Parents and caregivers must wear a mask before entering the building and are asked to leave the item(s) in a cart located outside 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.
