Welcome November!  

I cannot believe how quickly time is flying by!  Greetings from Cat Country!  I hope everyone is enjoying these last final days before Daylight Savings Time ends (clocks are set back one hour this Sunday, November 6th).  We have been busy at Cushing Elementary! Our Kindergarten and First Graders enjoyed their “Halloween Parade” at Cushing School on Monday morning - it was a true treat for us all!

Important Note From Our District Nurse Leader

Dear Families, We hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather we have been having! With fall and winter, unfortunately, comes cold and flu season. 

We would like to share this letter with suggestions for preventing respiratory illness that was shared with us by the Massachusetts School Health Unit.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to your Family's Health Care Provider, Nurse Leader Kellie Bell, or your school nurse if you have any questions or would like more information.
