Hello Cunningham Families! 


It is hard to believe that in just a couple of weeks we will be welcoming our students and staff back to another exciting school year.  Hopefully you are all well rested and have enjoyed quality vacation time over the summer.  It’s been a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with all of you and your children as I know you share the goal of creating an exemplary school that our students meet high academic and social standards. The vision of the Cunningham staff is to provide high quality instruction through an inclusive environment that builds a foundation for life-long learning enabling all students to recognize and achieve their fullest potential with respect and understanding for all diversities within our community. I would like to thank and commend our School Committee and School Administration for always placing our students’ best interests at the center of their decisions and our teachers and staff for the work they do every day as they seek to offer our students a quality educational experience. A very special thank you to our families for your continued dedication and support. We cannot do this without you. 


The first day of school is Wednesday, August 31st. School begins at 9:00 AM and ends at 3:10PM. It is imperative to have your child on time to school and dismissed at the end of the school day. Please note, there is no supervision for students who are dropped off on school grounds prior to 9:00 AM. This is an on-going and unsafe occurrence that we hope will not continue this school year. Students will not be marked tardy until after 9:05AM. 


All students will enter the school using our main entrance, door 1. Individual classroom dismissal procedures will be shared at our Open House on Monday, August 29th from 3:00 to 4:30pm. We will kick-off our open house with our annual Title I presentation. 


Students will be receiving breakfast in their classrooms at the start of each school day, and lunch as usual. Please be sure to fill out and return the Income Survey document to ensure our students continue to receive 100% free breakfast and lunch. Without these completed forms, we cannot guarantee this funding will continue. 


At this time, we do not have any bus information but once we receive it, we will be in contact with each family to verify this information. Please be sure to notify your child’s teacher if they are being picked up by another family member or attending a private daycare. Children will not be dismissed to any person that is not listed as an emergency contact and does not have a photo ID with them. 


Thank you for your attention. I look forward to welcoming our students back to school.
