Hunnewell Track & Field Phase II Proposal Approved
School Committee’s proposal to install bathrooms, team rooms, lights and an improved sound system – collectively known as Phase II Enhancements – on the Hunnewell Track & Field was approved by the Natural Resources Commission this past summer.
Massachusetts has extended universal free school meals through the 22-23 school year! This means that breakfast (MS/HS) and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to all students. Families will continue to be financially responsible for second meals, a la carte offerings, and beverages.
Even though meals are free for all, it remains extremely important for all families to complete the household Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals for the 2022-23 school year so that our district can continue to establish eligibility for P-EBT benefits, waive local fees, and serve families most effectively.
When returning the Application, we also ask that you complete and return the Sharing Information with Other Programs form as well. If your student(s) qualify for free or reduced price meals, this allows us to share your information with other programs so that your student can receive additional benefits.
Our department is in the process of implementing and launching this online health “portal” that partners with PowerSchool to allow access to the most up to date and direct access to your student’s health records on any device.
As part of the initial set up, emails were sent out to families from SNAP asking that you set up your personalized account. Please note that no action is required on your part right now and stay tuned for more information before the start of school.

The Town of Wellesley’s new Climate Action Plan is a thoughtful roadmap for the future of our community and its residents. Launched this month after more than a year of work, the Plan outlines specific actions Wellesley will take to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change and to build resilience to climate change impacts.
The much-anticipated Climate Action Plan was developed with community-wide input and is organized along six pathways: Governance, Energy, Buildings, Mobility, Natural Resources, and Waste. Goals, strategies and actions are spelled out for each pathway. Several of the Plan’s action steps are already underway! To view the complete list of actions within each pathway, visit Climate Action Plan.
