Howard parents… As you know we have been far more involved in using the West Bridgewater Public Library this year, and will continue to do so in the future. It would be really helpful if after your parent conferences in the next few days, if your child does not already have a library card, if you could go over and sign them up for one. It will make the process of supporting them with our programming that much easier. Thank you!
Just a reminder that the next four school days- tomorrow, and next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday- will be early release! Howard gets out at 11:30!
Bus four is on its route, but is running behind. Thank you for your patience!!

I will keep you posted and truly apologize for this inconvenience.
