Family Handbook

Dear Chickering Families,

I am pleased to share the Chickering School Family Handbook, a guide to expectations and procedures at our school. It is intended to support communication and understanding between families and staff, and to provide clarity around school policies.

Any changes or updates to these policies will be communicated in the Principal’s Newsletter and updated on this site. The Newsletter is published weekly and distributed electronically. Archived Newsletters can be found on the school website.

Thank you in advance for your support. Understanding and adhering to the guidelines fosters a school environment where students, staff, and families can realize an outstanding elementary education.

Chickering School is a place where children learn, laugh, grow, care and make a difference.
