Happy April from Gill Elementary School

Spring is in the air! The days are longer and mostly warmer, and we are gearing up for the gardening and nature adventures that spring brings with it. That being said, this is New England, and blizzards followed by blistering hot days are not uncommon. We go outside whenever we can, so please help your child plan accordingly for recess.

On Wednesday, 4/3/19, there is a half day for students. Thursday at 5:15 is our monthly PTO meeting at the Rendezvous in Turners Falls. Friday, 4/5/19 is our family dance at 5:30. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Please remember that There is no school the week of 4/15/19-4/19/19, as it is school vacation.

Lastly, I’d like to clarify the arrival procedures, as there has been a bit of confusion as of late. Doors open at 8:25 and drop off runs until 8:35. Technically, doors close at 8:35. If there are cars still in line or driving up the driveway, we’re not in the practice of shutting the door in anyone’s face. However, once the clock hits that 8:35 mark, if there is nobody outside, we do close the doors for the day. If you arrive after the time when doors are closed, please accompany your child to the door to sign him/her in to school.

Thank you,

Conor Driscoll,

Principal Gill Elementary
