If you need to visit Deerfield during the testing days, please make you sign in at the main office. Please do not linger in the hallways or enter any of the testing classrooms or settings while the MCAS testing is in progress. Thank you for your cooperation.



Reminder: Parent Input Form for Class Placement

Last Monday, I sent home a letter and the Parent Input Form for Class Placement. This was a yellow sheet of paper that should have come home in your child's backpack. The letter outlined our class placement process and encouraged parents to share their input as a valuable component of the process. I hope you will take the time to complete the form and return it to school. The forms will be shared with the class placement team and your child's teacher for the 2018-2019 school year.


The due date for the Parent Input Forms for Class Placement is Friday, April 27th. If you did not receive a form or need an additional copy, please contact Mrs. Miller: mmiller@westwood.k12.ma.us



School Committee Liaison

Deerfield's School Committee liaison for the 2017-2018 school year is Carol Lewis. Please feel free to contact Ms. Lewis if you have any questions or feedback to share regarding the Deerfield Elementary School or Westwood Public Schools.
