Good morning, We are aware of several regional threats to area schools. I was in communication with the Westbrook Police Department and area schools immediately. There were no reports or threats to any of the schools in Westbrook. As a precaution, Westbrook Police provided additional officers at all of our schools and staff ensured that all exterior doors were locked and attended. If information changes or a different response is necessary, we will be in touch. Take care, and be strong! Peter Lancia, Superintendent of Schools

Epic game between WMS Soccer and WMS Football teams. No injuries, thank goodness. I did not want to have to explain to their coaches!
Good afternoon, all. We are very sorry to say that we feel it is in the best interest of our students to cancel our dance tomorrow evening due to a lack of chaperones. Our dances always attract a large number of students and it is very important that we set them up for success and fun. We will look at the rest of our dance dates and see what adjustments we can make to ensure that we can provide fun, safe experiences for our students. Thank you for your understanding.
We celebrated our first regular staff meeting of the year with an amazing feast in nachos and churros from Fajita Grill. Thank you, Fajita Grill for the fabulous food!!
