Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!

May this message find you all comfortably relaxing during your Christmas Vacation, and enjoying every minute of your time with family and friends!  To ensure that you’ll have easy access to MS/HS schedules, bell times, and important dates for returning to school next week on Monday January 4th, please scroll down to find those dates, times, and reminders at the bottom of this post.

Please also be sure to check the “Events” Calendar for athletic and extra-curricular events and times, as the list below is not all inclusive. You can always check back to the “News” section, or the Groton Area Facebook Page to find any recent news about postponed events or late start times due to the weather.  Also please note that if school is late due to weather, student lunch times will be adjusted as well as reflected below in each of the different late start or early dismissal schedules. 

A new year, a new semester, and brand-new opportunities for individual and group growth.  Here’s to all of you parents and community members for hanging in there, working hard supporting students, staff, and other families all throughout 2020.  So grateful for all of you!  Please be sure to email or call with any questions you might have as we get started on Monday, January 4th.  See you soon!  😊
