  • Special Note from Mr. Jackson:

    I want to clarify the misinformation regarding the scheduled protest at UMass today.  The protest is not a school-sponsored event, and, as a result, the school  will not provide supervision for the event.  For students to participate they must have a signed note from a parent or guardian.  This is no different than any other dismissal from school.  Students leaving without a signed note will be considered to have cut class and will be consequenced accordingly.

     Thank you,  Mark Jackson, Principal
