School Committee meeting scheduled for Wednesday, January 28th @ 7 pm will still be held this evening at the WCAT studios.


Back to School

Despite what has been erroneously reported by Fox 25 News, the Wakefield Public Schools will resume classes tomorrow, Thursday, January 29, 2015 and follow our regular schedule.  We are grateful to our school staff and town DPW crews for clearing and removing snow over the last 24 hours.   Please use caution and plan for extra travel time to and from school.

We look forward to seeing our students tomorrow!
