Welcome To The Cobbet Elementary School

Cobbet Elementary school is a safe, nurturing, and energetic school that includes families from all over the world and fifteen different languages. The very proud tradition of “You are Welcome Here” continues on where we celebrate the voices of all of our students.

Our extremely dedicated staff challenges students and shares in their academic success. Students are encouraged to take risks, learn from their mistakes, and interact meaningfully with others to increase their learning. Students’ academic, social, emotional, and cognitive development are fully supported through each grade level.

Parents, guardians, and caregivers are welcomed to join us in collaboration as we shape the culture of Cobbet Elementary School. The home-school connection is extremely important in helping develop and support each child. Through this collaboration and engagement, together as a team, families and the school work to build a strong, healthy vision towards the future for our children.

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.

Estimadas Familias y encargados de la escuela Cobbet,

Como se compartió recientemente, el distrito se ha inscrito en el nuevo programa de pruebas "en casa". Los estudiantes que optaron por la primera ronda recibirán un kit de pruebas esta semana. Si usted no ha optado y está interesado, por favor haga clic en este enlace. Si se inscribe antes del 8 de febrero, será incluido en la próxima distribución la semana del 14 de febrero.  La inscripción permanecerá abierta y continuará. Si tiene dificultades para inscribirse, póngase en contacto con el Departamento de Salud de Lynn para obtener ayuda al (781) 586-6722.

Tanto las personas vacunadas como las no vacunadas se les recomienda fuertemente inscribirse. Si su estudiante ha dado positivo en la prueba de COVID-19, no debe hacerse la prueba durante 90 días a partir de la fecha de la prueba positiva.

Al inscribirse, se compromete a realizar la prueba a su estudiante una vez a la semana. Recibirá un kit, cada 2 semanas, que contiene 2 pruebas. Los estudiantes de la Escuela Cobbet se harán la prueba todos los viernes después de Escuela. Si el resultado es positivo, quédese en casa y notifique a la enfermera de la escuela al 781-477-7341 o

Value of the Month: Cooperation
Your family is the most important “team” that you will ever work with!

To be successful everyone in the family needs to:

• Respect each other’s space and belongings
• Listen to each other
• Do chores at the right time and with a good attitude
• Learn how to work out problems without fighting
• Communicate well so that everyone knows what is happening
• Spend time together as a family
• Celebrate each other’s successes
• Support each other through sad times
• Learn to share

Did You Know?
The routine of the school day is important for students. They know the main purpose for being in school is to learn and that routines are in place precisely to help them focus on that learning. When students are repeatedly tardy, these routines are disrupted. Arriving after 8:15 AM can throw off their whole morning or even their day, especially if being late made the trip to school stressful.

If getting to school by 8:15 AM is a challenge for your family, you will need to make changes to your morning schedule at home in order to get to school on time. During the winter, students take longer to get ready because of coats, boots and hats. Setting your alarm for 15 minutes earlier could be all that is needed to ensure students are here to meet the teacher by 8:15 AM. This adjustment can help ensure that all students have a great start to their day
