I hope you are enjoying a fun-filled summer vacation! I recently returned from a two-week trip to France and had a wonderful time!

Class Placements for 2018-2019: Class placements were posted Friday afternoon in the Aspen portal. If you have forgotten your Aspen account credentials or your account is locked, please email parentportal@concordps.org during business hours to have it reset. For the privacy of all Alcott students, please note that you will only see the placement for your child and not the roster for the class.

Recommended Class Supply Lists: On the parent portal, each parent can review a recommended, but not required, list of school supplies for each grade level.

Open House: Before we officially begin the new school year, I would like to invite you and your child to attend our Open House on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Although brief, this will be a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to meet his/her new teacher, classmates, and see the classroom.

Transportation: Information concerning transportation will be published in the Concord Journal and on the district website, concordpublicschools.net, in late August. If you have any questions or concerns regarding bus transportation, please contact Mr. Wayne Busa, Transportation Manager, at 978-461-3981.
