Good Afternoon and Happy Friday from Smith Academy. 

Good luck to our boys basketball team tonight as they will be traveling to Hoosac tomorrow night for a 7pm game in the second round of the MIAA state tournament! The bus will leave at 4:45pm. Please wear a mask. There will not be live-streaming available, and admission will be $5 for adults and $3 for students - cash only. And, just as a heads up, there is a Hoosac girls basketball game scheduled for 5pm before our boys game.

Congratulations to the Greenfield Ice Hockey Team for winning their first-round state tournament game! They will advance to the next round and play the #1 seed, Norwell, at "The Bog" in Norwell, on Saturday at 3pm.

Tis’ the season for MCAS. ELA MCAS testing dates will be as follows for Smith Academy Students:

During next week's School Committee Meeting on March 9th, the School Committee will discuss masks and determine if they will be optional after March 12th. 

We strongly encourage you to participate in both weekly pool testing and the at home test kits.  If you are already signed up for pool testing, but don't want the test kits, you don't need to do anything.  If you just want the test kits, please complete the form to indicate this.  

Opt - In Form - At-Home Tests. If you are signing up, please do so by the Friday PRIOR to the week they will be distributed. Tests are distributed on Tuesday.

Please remember that there will be no school on 3/11/22, as it is a professional development day for staff. 3/18/22 is a half day curriculum day. 

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.
