Message from the Principal - April
As we turn the page on yet another month at Warren Street Elementary, I want to take a minute to celebrate all of the great things that have taken place thanks to so many hard-working people. With the help of the PARP Committee of teachers and parents, Warren Street students celebrated reading in a truly “Royal” way, with presentations, afterschool activities, the royal feast and movie night! Also, with the help of a local anonymous donor, the elementary students throughout the district were fortunate enough to get a visit and a day of musical performance from world traveled artists and musicians, as part of the remarkable “Learning Arts” series. This came as part of Music in our Schools month, where we reinforce the importance of music and the arts in providing our children with a well-rounded education.   [Read more]

Safety First

Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us. During recess, the students use the playground and, in order to keep this area safe, the parking lot in front of the playground is for school employees only. Accordingly, it is blocked off from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

The parking lot in front of the school is available for parents dropping off and picking up their children. Please note that this parking lot is considered a roadway (Warren Street). Warren Street becomes a one-way street after the last residential driveway. All traffic exiting the parking lot needs to proceed in a one-way direction toward Wright Drive.

Please be aware of students crossing the parking lot and of buses during arrival and dismissal. It is illegal to pass a school bus with its red lights flashing!
