Good Evening Parents, Guardians, Caregivers, and Students:

We made it to the long holiday weekend! The weather has been beautiful and it looks to be perfect for leaf-peeping. We wish you a peaceful and relaxing long weekend and hope you have time to check out the Topsfield Fair to support our FFA Cider Stand.  


There is one month left until Quarter 1 ends on November 8th.  Therefore, there are approximately 2 blue weeks and 2 green cycles left in the quarter.  Students and caregivers should be checking grades in Schoology to be sure that assignments are complete and nothing is missing.

The Class of 2024 is driving a scavenger hunt for anyone who attends the Topsfield Fair from October 1 until October 11.  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.

Showcase of the Week:  

Our School Counseling Department did an awesome job welcoming families back onto campus for our annual College and Career Fair! It was very well attended as you can see.

College Fair

Our Athletics and Fan Section have been rocking it! Congratulations to our girls’ volleyball team for a fantastic win against Div. I Lawrence Lancers! We currently have three undefeated times (girls volleyball, girls cross country, and boys soccer with one tie).
