Summer Supply Lists
All students should refer to the School Supply Lists located on the Guidance webpage.
Eighth grade students should be sure to turn in their swim test forms for our Charles River Community Awareness field trip this September. Completed forms should be dropped off at the main office at Blake. A copy of the form can be found on the Forms and Documents tab of this blog.
Locks and Phones
As with last year, all Blake students will be required to bring in a combination lock with which to lock their hallway lockers. They will give their combination to their advisory teacher for safekeeping in the event that they forget it. In order to give students time to practice using their lock and become comfortable with it, we recommend that families consider purchasing it in June so that students may practice using it throughout the summer.
In order to minimize distraction during the school day, all cell phones will need to be off and locked in lockers next year during school hours. Students will not be permitted to carry phones during the day. If a student needs to make a phone call, phones are available in the guidance office and the main office. In addition, if a parent needs to contact a student during the school day, please call the main office and we are happy to get messages to students throughout the day. As always, students are discouraged from bringing valuable and distracting items to school.
