Reminder if you travelled out of MA during the break

Students and Staff are expected to abide by the MA Travel Advisory.

  • If you traveled out of Massachusetts (any states except Hawaii and/or abroad), you need to quarantine for 10 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72-hours prior to your arrival in Massachusetts.
  • If your COVID-19 test result has not been received prior to arrival, visitors, and residents must quarantine until they receive a negative test result.

If you have questions about the quarantine or testing requirements in the Travel Advisory, please contact the City of Newton Health and Human Services Department.

Yearbook and Gear

We braved the cold and distributed lots of yearbooks, hoodies, sweatpants, masks and t-shirts on Saturday. If you missed it, you still can get yours before the Holidays:

Yearbook: Students can get their pre-ordered copies at the school office. If you want to buy a copy, bring $25 in cash or a check made to Bigelow Middle School.

Gear: Please contact Amy McPherson at ablmcpherson0209@gmail.com or 617-834-9205.
