Dale St. Thoughtexchange Survey

From Superintendent Jeff Marsden –

**************************************************

Dear Parents,

This is an exciting time in our district. We have been selected by the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) to potentially build a new Dale Street School. The MSBA has given us two grade configuration options for new construction- a building with grades 4 and 5 or a building with grades 3, 4, and 5. As you can imagine, many decisions will need to be made and we want input from the people most affected by potential changes. In addition, your feedback will be valuable to both the School Committee and School Building Committee throughout this entire process.

 

To collect the feedback, we are using a new tool called Thoughtexchange. Within this tool, you will be asked to answer two demographic questions and one open-ended question with as many responses as you like. Then you will be asked to rate your thoughts and the thoughts of others by assigning stars to each thought (from 1-5) depending on how strongly you agree or support that idea. You can rate as many thoughts as you’d like. Once you’ve completed this step, you can review all submissions sorted by the average star rating.

 

It is important to note that all feedback you provide via this platform is confidential. This includes any shared thoughts, as well as specific ratings. We encourage you to revisit the site regularly as more and more thoughts are submitted.

 

Please submit your thoughts and complete your ratings by no later than Wednesday, January 29, 2020.

Dear Parents,

I have received confirmation from the Norfolk County Mosquito Control that we had a hard frost last night that would have killed any remaining mosquitoes in our area. The risk is now “minimal” and the curfew for outside school and town activities has now ended.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience over the past two months.

Sincerely,

Jeff Marsden
