Listening Session for New School, Thursday 7PM

From Jessica Reilley –

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The School Committee, together with the Board of Selectmen, will hold a listening and feedback session entitled:

“Priorities and Progress: Moving Forward to a New Elementary School Project”

Thursday, April 7th

 7:00 p.m.

Public Safety Building Training Room & via Zoom

The BOS and the School Committee would like to hear the community’s future-focused thoughts about how to create a facility that meets the educational needs of our town and achieves a level of consensus that reasonably ensures passage at a future Town Meeting and ballot vote.

Feedback will be taken both in person as well as through Zoom. There will be an open comments document available on both the Town and School websites for additional thoughts after the feedback session.  The meeting agenda for the joint session may be found here.

Tonight April 6, the Medfield Hospital Development Committee will hold a feedback session on the potential sale & development plans of the site to Trinity Financial. The Dale Street project and the disposition of the Former Medfield State Hospital land are long-standing issues within the town. If you would like to attend that session in person or via zoom, more information may be found on their Town of Medfield website.

We sincerely thank you for your continued support of our students and our town,

The Medfield School Committee

Jessica Reilly, Chair

Leo Brehm, Vice Chair

Timothy Knight, Recording Secretary

Michelle Kirkby, Member at Large
