Welcome to the month that brings all the wonderful evidence of spring? While sitting on the roof last week, chipping at the ice flow, I did detect the spring sounds of the birds, and noted with joy, the longer amount of daylight showing each day! It will come!
MCAS is fast approaching! I ask that you are aware of the schedule for MCAS and that you not schedule any daytime appointments during this very important time of year! It is important to remember that students cannot leave school and return in the middle of their MCAS testing or the test becomes void, so booking those meetings and appointments at another time is suggested.
Upcoming Activities and Events at Heath include: Because of the weather delay, the PSB have asked the Massachusetts Department of Education for several alterations to the schedule (listed below). ·MCAS Testing March 23 to the 27th, and March 29th to April 3rd. ·Following are the exams to be given on each day:

Doors will open for the morning arrival at 7:30 AM and students may enter through the front doors, the side door in the front nearest the multi -purpose room, and the downstairs cafeteria link door nearest the patio.
Keeping safety and security in mind, those who drop off on the Reservoir hill will be asked to walk down our new pathways to the front, or the cafeteria door.
Children who are dropped off in the front of the building should use the front door or door near the multi-purpose/Pre-K room.
Kindergarten families who are traveling to the classroom at 7:50 should enter any of the three designated doors.
Children may wait in the cafeteria, the library (grades 4-8) if they would like to read or work quietly, the computer lab (grades 2-8) if they would like to work on school work, or attend Morning Movement for grades 2-8 once these classes begin in September.
All children arriving before 7:55 (or 7:50 for those in Kindergarten) need to be in one of the above participatory areas until the bell rings.
Bell #1 will ring at 7:55 AM as a signal that students should travel to class; bell #2 at 8:00 AM is the formal beginning to our day.
Just a reminder that we do not have supervision on the outside playground areas before and after school.
Additionally, we remind all visitors to the building to sign in at the office table. Front doors will lock at 8:10 and reopen at 2:20 this year. Please remember that Monday through Thursday we are dismissing at 2:30 PM and Friday at 1:40 PM to provide the weekly teacher collaboration and research time.
