Valley West School will be closed until May 4th per the order of Governor Baker.



We will communicate any updates through our automated call system and on this announcement page. 


To all of our Valley West Families,

Our staff, along with Department of Education guidance, are making preparations to provide more interactive and comprehensive remote learning for our students during this closure.  This is a major undertaking for our teachers, so please bear with us as we work to create these opportunities and lessons for our students.  Updates will be communicated as soon as possible.



Clinical staff will continue to be available to all families to offer support and check-ins and to maintain communication during the extended closure. 

All staff are available through email, and will respond to questions and concerns as soon as possible.  

See the Adventure Ed tab for some awesome activities you can do at home!
