We understand that the high snow banks make pickup at the Dolbeare extra difficult and thank everyone for their patience.  Kindergarten parents are kindly reminded to park on Lowell St and refrain from parking in the front loop (this is available for drop off in the morning).  All other parents are reminded to meet children on the blacktop or to drive through the back horseshoe.  Safety remains our top priority and we ask parents to take extra care on the sidewalks and when crossing with children in or around streets.   

We thank you for your support and cooperation.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU:

Maureen McCarthy for running another successful LAD (Learning about differences) program and for coordinating the Ice Skating event at Market Place.

Early Dismissal Procedures

All parents/guardians who pickup a child early from school will be asked to show ID.  While Mrs. Sacco and the office staff know many parents, we ask for everyone’s cooperation with this practice for consistency.  We understand that checking IDs does add a minute to the dismissal process and we thank you in advance for your ongoing partnership as we take proactive steps to continue to ensure all children’s safety.

Scholastic Book Clubs


The Scholastic Online Book Club is a great way to to buy great, low cost books for your family while giving bonus points to your teacher and the media center. The more you order, the more you give to the school. The books come to the Media Center and get distributed to your child's classroom. Orders are placed twice a month, once around the first and again around the 15th.
