Dear Westborough Families and Friends,

 

As we all know, the last six months have been difficult as our community has coped with the pandemic and our nation has struggled to better understand what we need to do to achieve true racial equity. Through all this, our staff looks forward to greeting your children on Tuesday, Sept. 15th on the first day of school.  

 

As we start the new school year, we need to remember to be patient and kind to one another.   At home you may find it a challenge to get your family into new routines. At school we may experience some problems with bus routes and glitches with technology and other challenges in providing two learning platforms dictated by the pandemic.  As we work on these matters together, we will need to pay special attention to the social emotional health of both our children and our adults.  

 

Recognizing how challenging the past months have been and the coming year will likely be, the Westborough Public Schools and the Westborough Youth & Family Services have partnered to periodically produce a Community Wellness Guide focused on emotional wellness and racial equity. 

 

The first release of our Community Wellness Guide focuses on re-entry to school and managing change. We provide tips on how to talk with your children about their feelings during school opening, how to set your family up for success by building routines, how to deal with change, and how to handle job stress.  We hope you take some time with this helpful resource. 

 

One day at a time, we will accomplish a successful year. I wish you the best and can not wait to see your children either in person or online. 

 

Sincerely,


Amber Bock, Superintendent
