A Message from North Adams Principal, Deirdre Mills: First, I would like to say thank you for a great start to the new school year. It has been wonderful seeing all the kids back in school. However, we continue to battle with Covid again this year. We are working closely with the Health Department to stay up to date regarding the proper protocols. Today it has been clarified that when students are socially distanced AND wearing a mask, they will not be required to quarantine unless they begin showing symptoms. It is still your choice as a parent to send your child to school with or without a mask, however, it needs to be repeated that if your child is wearing a mask at school and they are in close contact with a positive case, the Health department will not require them to quarantine unless they start showing symptoms. North Adams Elementary will continue to socially distance as much as we can given the space we have available and we are committed to doing everything possible to keep our students in school. We appreciate everything parents do to support the education of their child and we know that it is important to you that students remain in school for in person learning, so we will continue to encourage students to wear a mask, even though it is not required. Thank you for doing everything you can as a parent to keep our school open and students in class.
Tomorrow is the first day of school for students in 1st-6th grade and for kindergarten girls! Kindergarten boys will attend on Thursday and all kindergarteners will attend on Friday.

Don't forget that breakfast and lunch are both free again this school year. If you child would like to have extra, however, those items will need to be purchased. Please make sure that your child and their homeroom teacher know their dismissal plans, including their bus number. We are looking forward to a great year! See you in the morning!
Here is the August lunch menu. Don't forget that both breakfast and lunch are free this year! However, any extras that any child would like to have must be paid for.
