Dear Parent/Guardian,
 The end of October is upon us and that means it is time for our annual Halloween Parade. The parade is on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at 1:15.
The students will leave the school through the front entrance of the Sisson School, walk down Conomo Ave to the back entrance of the schoolyard and then re-enter the school.

To alleviate a lot of confusion and for safety reasons, ALL students will be dismissed at the regular dismissal time of 1:45.

  • Sisson School does not have parties. Please do not send in any snacks or any other kind of school
  • Students are to bring their costumes to school in a bag. They will put their costumes on just before the start of the parade. Help will be available for any student who need it.
  • All costumes must be appropriate, and students must be able to walk safety.
  • Please no weapons of any kind, examples: guns, swords, princess wands, and no clown masks or masks with flowing blood.
  • Make up must be worn to school.

Welcome To The Edward A. Sisson Elementary School

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Another school year is under way and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with your children.

Some information follows to ensure your child’s school year is a happy and successful one.

  • Attendance is extremely important. Your child should attend school every day. Please try to schedule doctor and dentist appointments for after school hours or on Saturday. Please send a note in with your child if he/she is absent explaining why they were not in school.
  • School begin at 7:45.It is important that all students are here on time because breakfast is served promptly at 7:45 and ends at 8:00. Also when they are late, they miss valuable instructional time.
  • Check each night to see what your child has for homework. Homework must be completed each night and returned the following morning.
  • Students are not allowed to use cell phones in school, therefore the teacher will collect each cell phone and they will be kept in the office until the end of the school day.
  • Kindergarten students will enter and leave the building through the side door labeled AI. Grade 1 enters through the back door that is located on the back school yard labeled BI  Grade 2- 5 will enter through the front doors labeled A2.

During inclement weather (rain, snow) ALL students will enter through the front doors. (A2)

  • Lunch and milk money will be collected on Thursday morning.

Lunch $1.55 per day, $7.75 weekly and $2.00 if you qualify for reduced lunch. Milk money is $.45 per day and $2.25 weekly.

  • All visitors must report to the main office upon entering the building. The secretary will be very happy to assist you.

To visit a teacher or to attend a meeting, everyone must leave their license in the office and receive a badge.

  • Open House & PTO- I want to thank all of the parents who attended our first Open House (Meet and Greet and the Title I Meeting that was held on September 24, 2015.  I would also like to thank the parents who attended our first PTO Meeting that was held on September 28, 2015.

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
