On Wednesday afternoon, May 3, Hunnewell school and playground WILL BE CLOSED from 12:30-4:30 for the senior administrative staff of WPS to practice routine safety drills. We will be collaborating with the Wellesey Police Department to practice and standardize our safety protocols and procedures across the ten school settings.
All campus activities have been moved to accommodate this training. We ask that students and families abstain from returning to the building or using the playground during this training window. Please plan accordingly for any of our fifth graders who have plans to eat lunch in town on the half day. The school will be unavailable to make phone calls when they are ready to go home, and the playground will be closed for all afterschool play.
This work reflects the ongoing commitment Wellesley Public School maintains to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
Thank you for your assistance. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience of losing the playground on a beautiful May Wednesday.
