1. Remember a Water bottle! We are anticipating a hot first week back at school; please remember to send your student with a reusable water bottle labeled with their name.

2. *NEW* Field School T-Shirts New for Back to School: FS Fox t-shirts for students and parents! Get yours before they sell out! Plus, an assortment of FS/fox stickers and magnets. Please check the attached image for details. All items are cash or check.  Proceeds benefit upcoming faculty/staff appreciation events, FS community events, and the fifth grade Celebration Day in June.  Please reach out to Dr. Green for confidential financial assistance. Thank you for your support! 🦊❤️

We currently have a limited number of YM, AXS, AS, AM, AL, and AXL sizes. The t-shirts are Bella + Canvas jersey material, and are super soft. Please note: the sizing “runs small,” and we expect them to shrink slightly in the wash. Please see the attached flyer for images and prices.  Email us to order: Taylor McIntire & Katie Daunis

6. Field School Arrival and Dismissal Information School Hours and Vehicle/Bus Information Like last year, the school day will start at 8:00 AM and end at 2:20 PM.

Drop Off and Pick Up Timing and Location:

4th Grade: Drop off and pick up for 4th graders will take place in the library circle next to the Weston Public Library on the side of Field School. The entrance to the library circle can be accessed off of School Street. Please pull all the way into the circle-Field staff will be present to guide and support the process. Drop off will begin at 8:00 AM. We would very much appreciate it if you would not drop students off before 8:00 AM, as supervision is unavailable until this time. Pick up for 4th graders will take place in the same location at the end of the day starting at 2:20 PM.

5th Grade: Our fifth graders will be dropped off and picked up in the front circle in front of the main office. At the front of Field School, parents will pull cars ALL the way up to the curb past the front entrance (stopping at the cones). Drop off will begin at 8:00 AM and pick up will be at 2:20 PM. Please do not drop off your children before 8:00 AM, as we do not have staff to supervise early arriving students.

Bus Arrival/Dismissal  All bus routes have been posted on the school district’s school transportation website. The routes and other helpful information can be found at: https://www.westonschools.org/district/administration/transportation-department/. Our school busses arrive and dismiss from the lower circle behind Field School. Staff will be present to safely transport students into/out of the school to their busses when they arrive and dismiss.
