Dear Chace Community;
 
October has come and gone, and November - and fall - is upon us. 
 
Our second annual PTO sponsored Trunk-or-Treat, held in our school parking lot on the 28th of October, was a great success. More than 40 cars - both parent and teachers - were loaded up with candy and decorations, and a huge percentage of our students were able to come to share in the fun. Pictures will be posted on our Photo Gallery page shortly.
 
With November comes both Veteran's Day and our Thanksgiving break; after Thanksgiving, we'll be gearing up for our Parent/Teacher Conferences, being held virtually again this year on December 8th, between 12:30-7 PM. Please see the signup link to the right of this announcement to select a time with your child's teacher(s). 
 
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Seconday Education is still requiring masks for all students and staff until further notice; unmasking will require us to reach an 80% vaccination rate for our school (students and staff combined). At this time, no vaccine is available for children under the age of 12, so we don't have an idea of if or when Chace St. will be able to go maskless. Somerset is, of course, a public shool system and therefore must follow any requirements laid out by that state department.  
 
Enjoy the school year, and, as always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. 
 
Tim Plante, Chace Principal
