Free and Reduced Lunch Applications due September 14

Free and Reduced Lunch Applications will be completed on-line this year.  Families who received a note on the first day of school saying they are pre-registered do not need to do anything and can ignore this message.

All other parents, please go to and click the “Free or Reduced Lunch” button and follow the directions.  All families who wish to apply for Free/Reduced Lunch MUST complete the on-line application by September 14, 2015

Note, you only need to complete one application per family.  It will count for all of your children who are enrolled in the Revere Public Schools.

We welcome families to use our school's computer lab to complete this application. The computer lab will be open for families from 8:30-9:00 am on days that there is school until September 14. Families will also be able to use the school's computer lab during Meet the Teacher Night on September 8. 

If you have any questions or problems, contact your child’s school for support.  

Meet the Teacher Night – September 8

Please join us for our annual Meet the Teacher Night on Tuesday, September 8.

This is a night for you to meet your child’s teacher(s), to hear about what they will be learning in school this year, and for you to learn how you can help your child at home.

We will be hosting two sessions, so that families with children in different grades can get information from their teachers. Both sessions will include the same information and presentations.

Session One                                              Session Two

Grades PreK-5                                           Grades PreK-5

4:30-5:15                                                   5:45-6:30

There will be a presentation by the principal at 5:15 pm, in between the two sessions, to review school policies and expectations.

Meet the Teacher Night is for Adults only. Please do not bring children to this event.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, September 8, and to working with you this year.

Notice from the Superintendent

Emergency School Closings

The superintendent may close the schools, delay the morning start, or dismiss the students early in the event of hazardous weather or other emergencies that threaten the health or safety of students and personnel.  While it may be prudent under certain circumstances to excuse all students from attending school, the superintendent has the duty to see that as much of the administrative, supervisory and operational activity as possible continues.  Therefore, if conditions affect only a single school, only that school will be closed.
