A Letter from Mrs. McDonald

Dear Francis Wyman Families:

It is with great enthusiasm that I take on the role of Principal at Francis Wyman Elementary School on a permanent basis.  I look forward to building upon the relationships that I have established over the past two years with students, staff, and families to ensure the best learning experience possible for every child.  The staff at Francis Wyman is talented and dedicated, and I am proud to have the opportunity to continue the many successes previously accomplished here and follow in the footsteps of such dedicated leaders as Susan Astone.

I would like to take a moment to remind you of some important changes taking place this year.  The daily schedule at Francis Wyman has shifted to an earlier time with the school day scheduled from 8:10 AM - 2:15 PM.  Drop off time in the morning will begin no earlier than 7:55 AM and student pick-up by parents and buses will begin at 2:25 PM.  It is critical for student success that they arrive on time in the morning to allow them to be fully present and prepared for learning.  If arriving after the 8:10 morning bell, please be sure to accompany your child into the building and sign them in at the front office.  A new attendance policy has been issued by the Department of Education and further details will be highlighted in this years student handbook which will be available on-line.

Also, Andrea Hayes will be continuing on as the Special Education Team Chairperson for Francis Wyman School.  We are fortunate to benefit from her many years of experience as a special education teacher and Team Chairperson here in Burlington.  If you have any questions regarding your child’s IEP or special education programming, please contact her at 781-270-8149.

If at any time you have questions regarding Francis Wyman School policies and procedures or your child’s school progress please do not hesitate to contact us at 781-270-1701.

I look forward to an exciting, successful school year.


Nicole McDonald
