All you need to do is take photographs of yourself enjoying the events at the Fair listed here: What to hunt. Different pictures hold different values, and some can be used more than once, so read carefully! Then simply post your photos to this form Hawks of 2024 Topsfield Fair Scavenger Hunt as well as the EssexNorthShore Instagram Page. Top point earners will win fabulous prizes!
Ill Children Should Stay Home
We have seen an increase in children coming into school who are sick. We ask that children stay home if they are not feeling well or exhibiting any COVID-like symptoms. Because we use Schoology, makeup work is easily accessible. We would rather your child get the rest they need at home. Please review the following Nurses Notes for more specific information regarding COVID symptoms.

The Essex Tech DECA club is having an Electronics Recycling Fundraiser on Saturday, October 16th from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. Please see their flyer for more information.
