Bartlett Elementary School Bulletin for Wednesday, May 24, 2017
Students should NOT arrive at school before 7:40 am because there isn't any supervision before that time. Leaving your children at the school unsupervised may be a safety issue.
For your child's safety, it is our policy that you MUST send in a note to inform us if your child is going to take a different bus, walk, or be picked up by someone specific. We must receive notice of the change in writing. If we do not receive a dated and signed note, the information on the green arrival/dismissal form will be followed.
Please remember to notify the school if your child is going to be absent or tardy. To ensure the safety of your child, the nurse will call where the student resides if we do not hear from the parent/guardian regarding a student's absence. You can call Bartlett School at 497-2210 twenty-four hours a day and leave a message in the general voice mailbox by pressing "9". Please use this option as well when calling during the day if your call goes to an answering machine. Your call will be returned as soon as someone is available. (If you need to leave a message directly for the nurse, you can press "5902".) Thank you for your support and cooperation.
Goffstown Network - Weekend Food Program
The Goffstown School District and Goffstown Network are working together to provide food for students with limited access to food between school lunch on Friday and breakfast on Monday. Students will receive a bag of nutritious, easy-to-open, and prepared food items to bring home on Friday afternoons. If you believe your child will benefit from the program, please complete an application and return it to the Bartlett Elementary School office. Applications will be accepted throughout the school year and can be found in the Bartlett lobby.
