Weather Cancellation Policy

St. Bernard's follows the Fitchburg Public School cancellation policy. Local TV channels 4,5 and 7 will post delays or cancellations. Students may follow the cancellation policy in their own communities, however, students are responsible for all assignments on days not present. Student safety is most important and parental discretion is advised. Dismissal from school during storms may not be in the best interest of safety. Often roads are treated during the day and are in better shape at 2:00 P.M. We will dismiss during the day when advised by local and state police that road and weather conditions will not improve. Students should not contact home to have parents call for early dismissal. 



US Environment Asbestos Report

To: Parents and Staff From: Principal Blanchard Date: 9-16-14 In compliance with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), 40 CFR Part 763, an asbestos re-inspection and management plan update was conducted at all of the schools in the Diocese for asbestos containing building materials. The EPA requires a re-inspection of the asbestos materials every three years. During the months of March and April 2014 an accredited asbestos inspector performed the required re-inspection. A review and update was also provided and a three year inspection report was issued with recommendations for the management of asbestos containing materials. The inspection, findings and asbestos management plan updates for the school are on file both here and in the Catholic Schools Office located at 49 Elm Street in Worcester. You are welcome to view these anytime during normal business hours.
