School Hours and Safe Arrival


School Hours:
School begins at 8:50 AM and dismisses at 3:20 PM. * School doors open 15 minutes before school starts, at 8:35am. Do not drop your child off earlier than 8:35 AM. Students dropped off early will have to wait outside regardless of the weather.

Every Wednesday is Early Release. ALL children are dismissed at 12:50 PM on Wednesday, including half-day kindergarten students (who are normally dismissed at 11:50 AM on other days). 

Safe Arrival:
The McCarthy-Towne PTSO runs a Safe Arrival program which ensures that every student is accounted for each school day.

Parent(s)/Guardians should call the Safe Arrival hotline and leave a message if their child will be late or absent from school. Every morning, the McT office compares the Safe Arrival messages with the classroom attendance report. If a child is absent and a message hasn't been received, we will call parent(s)/guardians/emergency contacts until the child is accounted for.

Please remember to call the Safe Arrival Hotline at:
978-264-4098 *available to leave message 24 hrs. a day
Or email [email protected] The safety of your child is very important to us.
