February Parent Newsletter
Boutwell Early Childhood Center
In the event of a school closing or delayed opening due to severe winter weather, information will be available on the Wilmington Public School website, Twitter and local news outlets. In addition, families will receive an automated call. If there is a delayed opening, all AM Preschool programs and before school CARES programs are cancelled. Below are the start times in the event of a delayed opening:
2 hour delay - School begins at 10:00am. Students may be dropped off beginning at 9:45am.
If your child will be absent from school, please call the main office at 978-694-6070. When you leave a message, please be sure to include the room number and the reason for your child’s absence. Remember, your child needs to be symptom free for 24 hours before they return to school after an illness.
I would like to thank all the students, families and staff who donated warm winter hats, mittens and gloves for our January community project. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
