Reminders from the Office: When schools are closed early, and all after school activities are cancelled, that does include the Boys and Girls Club aftercare at Charlestown. In this event, please contact the school office as soon as possible with alternate dismissal instructions. Instructions must come from parents or legal guardians only.
Please remember to send in notes for student absences. Five or more absences in a marking period could result in failure if notes are not on file in the office before report cards are issued.
Please remember to be at your child’s bus stop at the appointed time. Students pre-k through 1st grade will not be let off the bus without a parent or guardian to receive them. Students who are brought back to school via the bus could incur a monetary charge from the bus contractor.
