Our vision is to connect, engage, and inspire all students in the Ayer Shirley Regional School District to reach academic excellence. We, the educators of the Ayer Shirley Regional School District, will instill habits of reflection and inquiry to challenge our students in setting ambitious academic and personal goals. Students will develop a strong voice to express thoughts and ideas in the community and the confidence to showcase their talents and successes in preparation for entry into college and the world of work. 


There is a TWO hour delayed opening today, November 16. The middle and high schools will open at 9:50, and the elementary schools will open at 10:45. Students in the middle and high schools will still be dismissed on the half day schedule, and parent conferences will be held today.

AM pre-k sessions at Page Hilltop and LAW are cancelled today.

Schedule for ACP & Extended Day at LAW
