A reminder that school begins at 8:50 a.m. Please be sure to make every effort to be have your child arrive on time!
Regular attendance at school is important for all students. We know that having children in school on time, all day, every day can make a big difference in their achievement. Of course we all recognize that there are going to be days when students need to be home due to illness, but research shows that making regular school attendance a priority will have a positive impact on student learning.
We’ll be recognizing classrooms with “perfect attendance” at our upcoming SURFS Up Celebration. Thank you for your support of our attendance goal and your support in ensuring that your child is in school On Time, All Day, Every Day!

The Middletown School District is implementing a Volunteer Procedure to ensure the safety of all students. The procedure requires that school volunteers are prescreened by the Middletown Public Schools and the Connecticut Department of Children and Families.
If you are interested in volunteering at Macdonough School or chaperoning a field trip, please contact Kelli Swan (or your child’s teacher) to request a Volunteer Packet. All packets must be completed and turned in prior to your volunteer experience.
We value parents and caregivers having a strong role in our learning community and are committed to supporting the new Volunteer Procedure to ensure a continued partnership with all families.
