Clothing should not disrupt the educational atmosphere or programs of the schools. The Randolph School Committee firmly believes that with the full cooperation of all parents/guardians, students, teachers and administrators this dress code policy can help: students better concentrate on school work, enhance the appearance of Randolph Public School Students and help students learn to “dress for success.”

Greeting Randolph Families, Randolph Public Schools continues to upgrade its pest management plans. Since my appointment as Superintendent, I have worked with my team to bring on a new pest management company and to provide ongoing food safety and building cleanliness. The Town’s Board of Health Inspector visited our schools on August 16th and all schools passed inspection; our kitchens are open. We are posting notification of the placement of exterior bait boxes around all the schools. These bait boxes are a preventative measure to keep pests outside of our schools. We value the health and safety of your students and our staff and will continue to review the status of our facilities. Please bear with us as we continue plugging holes and cracks in our very, old buildings. Thank you. Thea Stovell Superintendent
