Message from ENSATS 6/3/2022

Good Afternoon Caregivers and Students:

What a week!  It has been a fantastic week for our seniors.  Prom, Boston Harbor Cruise, Food Truck celebrations, Awards Night, and Graduation.  Congratulations, Class of 2022!  We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.  We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to all staff members who worked so hard to make this week memorable for our students and their families.  



As we look ahead to next week, we have the MCAS Biology test next week, Tuesday, June 7th and Wednesday, June 8th for all 10th graders.


Please note that there are some schedule adjustments for next week due to MCAS testing. 

  • School will begin at 7:45 am on Tuesday, June 7th and Wednesday, June 8th for Grade 9 and 10 students only.  
  • We will have blocks A, B, C, D, E, and F in that order on both MCAS days.
  • We will not have an 8:45 am start on Wednesday so that Grade 10 students can start the MCAS test as early as possible.
  • Grade 11 students will arrive at school at 11:30 am on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Grade 11 students will report directly to lunch and then to their CTE areas at 12:00.
