Dear Frost Middle School Families,


On behalf of the entire FRM faculty, we hope you and your children enjoyed the summer.  We anticipate another successful school year with several new members joining the Frost Family, many of whom you will meet in our upcoming community engagement opportunities!


Please welcome Jennifer Sirois and Paul Flanigan to my administration team, each as Assistant Principal.  Ms. Sirois has a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) in school administration and several years experience as special education teacher/evaluation team facilitator/mentor.  Mr. Flanigan will bring to the position nearly thirty years classroom practice as science teacher and practical knowledge as a school administrator at the Frost and Wetherbee Schools.  I look forward to leading our Frost Falcons alongside them!


Please refer to the FRM webpage at the LPS website for all updates, news and notes.  In addition to the welcome letter, you will find the FRM “Acceptable Dress Policy”, and links to the SY 22-’23 calendar, LPS COVID protocols and safeguards, as well as school contact information.  You may come into the office to pick up a grade level supply list.


Students’ first day of school is Monday, August 29.  Homeroom assignments will be ready for the first day but may not be posted in advance.  A regular school day for students is 7:45AM -2:45 PM.  Timely morning arrival means reporting to outside homeroom lines between 7:30 and 7:40.  Students begin entering the building at 7:40AM with daily instruction at 8:00AM.  Please account for traffic during morning arrival.


Breakfast is served daily from 7:10-7:35 AM.  Students should not report to school grounds prior to 7:10 AM for safety purposes.   Middle school students dismiss beginning at 2:45 PM and all students should be picked up by 3:00 PM.  Please contact our parent liaison, Diana FPerez, any time your child is absent from school for any reason.  The direct line to the nurses’ offices is 978-722-8804. 


The school calendar shows early release days (11:30 DISMISSAL), any designated no-school days and school vacation weeks.  If your child takes Private Transportation/Day Care Bus at dismissal, please notify the school immediately to share transportation assignments.  Any student assigned to a bus will be placed on the bus at the end of the day unless the school is notified in writing that other arrangements have been made for pick-up. 

Your child will bring an emergency form home next week.  Please complete it in full and return it as soon as possible.  It is important that we have accurate information and any updated contacts on file.


The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released the MCAS calendar for 2022-‘23.  Please avoid planning vacations and/or appointments on school days during MCAS weeks.  Your child will receive a student handbook containing more information.    


Thank you for your continued support and your trust in our ability to care for the well-being of your children.  As always, please contact my office with questions or concerns.  We look forward to seeing you August 29!

FRM Student Dress Policy  


Students at the Robert L. Frost Middle School are expected to uphold standards of appropriate conduct and appearance.  Student dress should be suitable for normal school activity and demonstrate respect, pride and good standards of a student’s home and community.


Students may wear long or short-sleeved shirt, tie, blouse, vest, sweater, sweatshirt, pants, sweatpants, shorts, skirt, knee socks, tights.  All colors along the “color wheel” are accepted.


Students ARE NOT allowed to wear excessively torn, frayed or cut clothing or clothing or jewelry which displays suggestive slang and/or advertising detrimental to student health and safety (ie. alcohol, drugs), or containing inappropriate language.


The following items ARE NOT allowed as part of the school day (unless otherwise authorized) –


Jeans, jean shorts, bandanas, hats, cut-off shorts, tank tops or “spaghetti straps” (unless covering a short or long-sleeved T-shirt), sleeveless shirts, tankini, mid-drift or “half” shirts, slippers, open toe shoes (ie. sandals, slides, high-heels). 


Any “outside” wear (ie. light-weight jackets, winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves, earmuffs, sunglasses, etc.) is not permitted during the school day (with the exception of recess or another outside activity) and must be stored in students’ lockers.


The wearing of hoods as part of a hooded sweatshirt or hooded jacket/windbreaker, etc. is not to be worn inside during school hours due to concerns surrounding academic engagement and student safety.  If the wearing of hoods persists at any grade level, the wearing of hooded sweatshirts as part of the policy for "appropriate student dress" may be removed from the list of acceptable items and students will be asked to store the hooded item in their locker.


Repeated violation of the policy for appropriate student dress at FRM will result in disciplinary action in accordance with the Lawrence Public Schools’ Students Rights and Code of Conduct under C-Code violation #6.  Excessive violations of the student dress policy may result in the loss of privilege to attend school events.
