August  2023

 Dear BPS Families,

I hope that you are enjoying the warm weather with family and friends and have had time to unwind and relax.  We are excited for the start of the 2023 – 2024 school year and want to remind families that the first day of school for Bristol Public Schools is Thursday, August 31, 2023.

 We have had a busy summer at BPS! We have completed small renovation projects at Edgewood School, and are in the process of moving new items designed to create model Pre-K classrooms into their new home at Edgewood Pre-Kindergarten Academy!  We are thrilled to be one step closer to having our Pre-Kindergarten Academy ready to open for our staff and youngest scholars later this month. We received the commitment letter from the State in June to build a new larger and contemporary Northeast Middle School! Upon completion in September of 2026, we will be able to open our newly constructed NEMS (hopefully this is the timeline), fully align our grade bands to K-5, 6-8, and 9-12, and transition our K-8 schools to K-5 schools. We executed this plan in 2019 and it is amazing to have BAIMS, our new Pre-K Academy, and NEMS (in their various stages) all come to fruition by the 2023 goal!

Enjoy the rest of your summer break and I hope you are as excited as we are for this upcoming school year and the opportunities that await your scholars in 2023-2024.

In partnership,


Catherine M. Carbone, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
