Spirit Week-May 11th/Questions to Answer with School Closed Through June 23, 2020

All school buildings are closed for the remainder of the school year due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak per order of Governor Baker. Please check the Public Schools of Brookline website for information if needed.
With the news that school buildings will be closed the rest of this school year comes many questions. We are currently working behind the scenes so that we can find ways, practical and celebratory, to get true closure on the school year, like:
- Getting into the building- to get stuff in lockers, musical instruments, student projects, winter boots and coats, and more. When it is safe, the district will establish protocols for retrieving such items. We’ll have to continue to be patient on this front.
- 8th Grade graduation- while this milestone event won’t happen in the same way it always has, we fully intend to mark the auspicious occasion. Details to follow.
- Yearbook-Parents are still working hard on trying to identify ways to create the all school yearbook. Ms. Alper is also working on ways to hopefully publish the 8th grade specific yearbook.
- 5th to 6th grade transition- the transition from elementary to middle school is an important time at Lawrence School. We’ll reach out with details on how we hope to smooth this transition for incoming grade 6 students, so that come the fall they can feel safe and prepared to enter middle school.
It is so important that in each classroom we find ways to celebrate the end of the year while helping our students look forward to what is to come. The launch of the new school year will offer many, many new challenges, but for now we’ll focus on what is immediately ahead.
