    Message from the Superintendent - New Rules Regarding Dogs on School Grounds 

    May 2018 

    Dear Community Members: 

    You may notice that we have recently posted "No Pets" signage on both the middle/high school campuses, and Mill Road school grounds.

    This decision followed many months of contemplation by the administrative team, the District Leadership Team (DLT), and the Board of Education. While most pet owners behave responsibly, we have had numerous incidents of fecal matter being left on athletic fields, recess areas, and other locations on our grounds.

    Additionally, there have been several reports of unfamiliar dogs (both leashed and unleashed) brought to school functions. It is our desire that participants and spectators at school-sponsored events feel comfortable and not have any anxiety over the disposition of unfamiliar dogs.

    We recognize that this new prohibition will necessitate a change in behavior for some adults. We trust that the community will understand this decision was made with the health and safety of our students and staff foremost in our minds. 


    Paul Finch, Superintendent of Schools
