Dear CSUS Parents and Caregivers,
It has been a while since I last spoke with you all, but I am happy to inform you that I am back at the Cambridge Street Upper School and I am prepared to assist our Scholars and Families in any way I can. I am extremely appreciative of all the thoughts and prayers that were sent my way during my recovery from surgery and I am very excited to be back and present within the CSUS community. If you have any concerns please feel free to contact me via phone at 617.349.3050 x330 or via email me
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
