Superintendent's Message

Words cannot describe how impressed I was this past Monday, visiting our schools, and experiencing teaching and learning at all levels after a week of vacation. I visited Worcester East Middle School, Grafton Street School, Union Hill School and Vernon Hill School. Students were engaged, actively participating in the activity, and the teachers were notably prepared. I have to say this experience did not surprise me but, it validated, once again, the outstanding work that takes place in every classroom, every day. Thank you for not missing a beat!!!

Superintendent's Message

Happy Friday! It’s hard to believe that Winter Break is already here – the school year is flying by. Thankfully, we have been able to enjoy long stretches of uninterrupted learning time, courtesy of Mother Nature. At this time last year, it was virtually impossible to gain traction in the classroom because of the relentless barrage of snow and ice.

Keep Worcester Walking in Winter

City of Worcester ordinances require property owners to clear snow and ice in front of and adjacent to their property. Property owners can be fined $75 per day and/or assessed the cost of removal by the City if they do not clear snow and iceDo your part to keep sidewalks, curb-cuts, and ramps clear of snow and ice!
