Barr Grant Announcement
TFHS has just received a $200,000 grant to develop innovative programs and approaches to help students better prepare for the world of work or higher education. The grant is called Powertown in the 21st Century and it is funded by the Barr Foundation and will be supported by the Collaborative for Educational Services.
For more information on this grant, please read our grant recipient announcement in its entirety.
With winter soon upon us I wanted to inform you of a change in policy related to late-start-snow-days. One or two winters ago, we cancelled school on an early release (half) day when weather conditions could have allowed us to have a two-hour delay. The problem was that having a two-hour delay on a half day would have made very little sense, as students would have been at school for a very short time before turning around and going home.

The Gill-Montague Regional District School Committee is concerned with the proposed expansion of the Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School and has expressed this concern with the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Please take a moment to read the school committee's charter expansion letter of concern for complete details.
