Buses from Camp Winona should arrive at Commonwealth between 12:30 and 1 p.m. If you are driving to the school, please do not park on the Dartmouth St. side; the buses need to park there. Students should remain at the school until all buses are unloaded.

Sad to day, we have decided to cancel Beach Day; it looks like the weather will be chilly and rainy. Graduation rehearsal is still scheduled for 8:30 a.m. at First Church, 66 Marlborough St. Students can come to the school before 10:30 a.m. on Thursday to pick up books, clear out their cubbies, and turn in prox cards and other items. We hope to see you at graduation ceremonies on Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. at First Church. Seniors should be there by 10 a.m.

We're heading home! Buses from Hancock will arrive at about noon. Three important reminders: 1. Do not park on Dartmouth Street in front of the school—that is where the buses park. 2. Because of limited storage space at the school, students should bring everything they took to Hancock home with them today. 3. Traffic may be heavier than usual in the Back Bay because of the Jimmy Fund walk, so you may want to allow extra time.
