5th GRADE PARENT ORIENTATION
The Roberta G. Doering School will conduct its Grade 5 Orientation for parents and guardians on Thursday, August 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the school auditorium. The purpose of this event is to outline school policies and procedures prior to the first day of school. Additionally, Back to School Night will be held Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30 p.m., beginning in the school auditorium with a brief discussion concerning policies and procedures, and ending with meetings with your childrens' teachers. Because students attended their orientation in June, it is advised that students do not attend either event due to space constraints. We look forward to seeing you those evenings.
The students at the Roberta G. Doering School have been extremely fortunate to have a kind, caring, dedicated Student Support Service Staff over the past several years.
The Student Support Service Staff have provided the backbone to a staff that has worked diligently to establish an outstanding school culture. Our motto of Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible has been embraced by students, staff, parents and administration.
Counselors have adopted the Massachusetts Model for School Counseling Programs which helps prepare students to work toward the goals of being college and career ready when they graduate from High School.

STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP AT ROBERTA G DOERING SCHOOL
To ensure the safety of students, in conjunction with the police department, the town engineering department, school department and bus company, the Roberta G. Doering School has instituted a comprehensive student drop off and pick up plan. Starting on the first day of school, all buses will access school grounds through the Town Hall parking lot and stage in the drive on the Town Hall side of the school in the morning and afternoon. The front parking lot will be closed off to all traffic for morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Student drop off will take place by driving down the left hand side drive off Main Street, around the back of the school, then down the Town Hall side drive to the front door where students will exit cars and enter the building. There will be a brief wait on the rear parking lot at 8:19 when buses will enter the Town Hall side drive alongside the school, in 2 phases, to let students off. After buses leave the grounds, student drop off will continue at the Town Hall side front door. Student pick up will occur in the rear of the building on the parking lot. Parents will be able to enter the left hand side drive beginning at 2:30 p.m. and stage in lines designated by cones on the rear paved lot. After buses are loaded and leave the school grounds, students will exit the rear of the school on the Town Hall side when they will walk to cars for dismissal. Walkers will also be dismissed after buses leave. Please note that auto traffic should not enter or leave through Town Hall nor should they park at Towne Insurance Agency at the corner of Reed Street. There will be ongoing bridge construction in this area beginning after the Big E. Your cooperation in instituting this plan will be appreciated as we work to ensure the safety of students, staff and parents.
