Dear Ray School Families,
As we head into our Thanksgiving break, we want to thank you for your support this year and for sharing your children with us. Please enjoy this break with family, friends, relaxation, and great food! We will see you again next Monday.
Haven Helpers: Thank you!
Thank you to Jackie Atherley for transporting an additional 142 pounds of cranberry sauce, stuffing and other items for the Haven. Well done, K-1 classes and Ray School! K-1 will still collect food items until the end of the month. For December we will collect clean/packaged underwear and socks (for all ages/sizes) as a SCHOOL WIDE collection. Bins will be in the lobby as well as at the Holiday Chorus Concerts. Thank you for your continued support!
Winter School Closings and Delays
School will be closed, or opening will be delayed, on days of severe or dangerous weather conditions. Notice of school closing or delay is posted on the WMUR website and broadcast on various radio stations by 6:15 a.m. Automated phone messages also go out to families by 6:30 a.m.
Delayed Opening: When road conditions are questionable, school opening may be delayed for two hours, to 10:00 a.m. TV and radio stations will be broadcasting the information by 6:15 a.m. ''Delayed opening'' may later become a closing if weather conditions deteriorate. Parents should monitor radio or TV for possible changes. If school is closed, an automated phone message will be sent by 8:30 a.m. When opening is delayed, there will be no schoolyard supervision until 9:45 a.m. Please do not drop off students before 9:45 a.m. If you arrive for an 8:00 a.m. opening and there are few or no cars, be sure to check that school has not been delayed or canceled.
When school opens in the morning, it will remain open all day.

The annual exhibit of Ray School art will be on display at the Mascoma Savings Bank in Hanover (across from CVS).
