The Boxford School Committee met on Thursday, September 20th. Topics discussed included Dr. Morrison’s Opening Day with teachers and staff; an update on the Spofford Pond window and playground projects, and completion of the new Tri-Town Schools Policy book. This will be an online and searchable tool for teachers, administrators, and parents. The BSC approved a fuel-efficient vehicles policy in compliance with the Green Community Initiative.
