*Volunteering Update *

  • *Given the current COVID-19 environment, volunteers and visitors will not be allowed in the Essex Westford School District buildings during school hours at this time. Co-curricular and athletics outside of school hours may allow volunteers as needed. A small, limited number of volunteers may be requested to join outdoor, pre-approved field trips on an as needed basis. Communication will come from your school if an opportunity exists to volunteer. 

    Please review the district's recent communications page for any updated COVID-19 guidance.
