Superintendent of Schools - Amber Bock

Dear Westborough Community,

I hope you’ve been enjoying these warmer Fall days and the bursts of autumn colors around town!

I’d like to share the following reminders and updates with you:

Fall Town Meeting
On Monday, October 15th the fall Special Town Meeting will commence at 7 pm in the high school auditorium. There are 41 articles being presented for consideration, four of which pertain to the schools:

  • Articles 27 and 28: Reallocation of funds to the Fales and Hastings School Building projects
  • Article 29: Upper Parking Lot Guardrail and Front Sidewalk Replacement at the High School
  • Article 40: Zoning Setback for Fales School

For more information on these articles, click here for the full Town Meeting warrant. Please consider participating in Town Meeting so that your voice is heard and your vote counted.

Bussing

I’d like to thank you for your feedback on this year’s bussing. This information has been most helpful in allowing us to get routes corrected so students are transported to and from school safely, and as efficiently as possible. I was more pleased with today’s bus runs, and ask that you continue to provide input as needed. We will continue to communicate our progress as we move forward in the school year. I expect on time and consistent pick-up will be in place by next week.

Make-up Days

The School Committee voted last evening to put Alternative Learning Days in place to replace Snow Days. In addition, the March 11th Professional Development Day was approved as a half day for students.  With these changes, the last day of school will move to June 20th. Details on how the Alternative Learning Days are to be implemented will be shared with you by early November.

Sincerely,

Amber Bock
