***NEW UPDATE as of Sunday, 3/15/2020***

Schools across Massachusetts have just been ordered by Governor Baker to close for three weeks.

It is imperative that all MA citizens take the new guidelines about limiting our social interaction seriously over this difficult time. Remember that you can easily carry this virus without knowing it and transmit it to our most vulnerable citizens. We must be empathetic to the needs of others right now.

I will post tomorrow morning what our reading / assignment schedule will be for this next week. Please see my update from yesterday below for more information.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.

Take care of yourselves and each other.
-Mr. Doherty



** Update due to the COVID-19 health closure as of 3/14/2020 at 8:30AM. ** 


Since we will be out of school for the next week, students should check Google Classroom for regular updates to class assignments.

I will hold official "office hours" from 12:30 - 2:30PM where I will be available for conference calls / Google hangout chats if parents or students need to have a conversation with me about anything school related. Throughout the rest of normal school hours, I will frequently check my email / Google classroom for any written questions you may have.
