Wyatt Harvey

Reminder: Morning Arrival Time

We have a Before School Program at Deerfield. This program begins at 7:00am and runs from Monday through Friday. Please contact the Westwood Extended Day Program Coordinator, Janice Van Hyning (jvanhyning@westwood.k12.ma.us), for more information.


The school day begins at 8:25am. At 8:20am, a bell will ring calling students to line-up and proceed to their classrooms. Students who arrive between 8:05am-8:20am will begin their day on the playground where staff members will supervise a morning arrival time. In the case of inclement weather, the students will proceed to the gym during this time. Please do not drop your child off before 8:05am. We are not able to provide supervision of students prior to that time.


Students who arrive after 8:25am are tardy and must check-in at the main office before proceeding to their classrooms. Please make every effort to help your child arrive before our 8:25am start time.


Wednesday, September 28th is an Early-Release Day

Wednesday, September 28th is an early-release day for students. Students will be dismissed at 11:25am and lunch will not be served.


Students' Personal Devices in School

Since the beginning of the school year, I have observed some students with personal devices, such as smart phones and iPods, in school. 


If a student brings a personal device to school, the device must be turned off and put away in a backpack for the entire school day. This includes bus rides to and from school. The student is also responsible for the the care and safe-keeping of the device. If a student needs to contact a parent, that call can be made in the main office using a school phone. 


Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss the presence and use of personal devices in school.
