Are you interested in the future of our Communities? Join us for the Fiscal Year 2025 Budget Forums on Tuesday, February 27th, at 7:00 p.m. at Swallow Union Elementary School, where we will present, review, and answer questions on the proposed budgets for the Town of Groton, the Town of Dunstable, and the Groton Dunstable Regional School District. As both towns face substantial budget deficits in FY25, we especially need your input. These forums allow residents to voice their opinions, ask questions, and gain a deeper understanding of the budgetary plans for the upcoming fiscal year. Your participation is crucial in shaping the future of our Communities.
Good afternoon, Due to tomorrow's projected weather, Groton Dunstable Regional will be closed on February 13th. All after-school activities are also canceled. Best regards, Laura Chesson

Good evening, Due to the continued forecast for significant snowfall and deteriorating road conditions, GDRSD will be opening on a two hour delay tomorrow. However, given the lack of clear projections on snow fall and duration of the storm, staff should check for a possible change to cancellation in the morning. Again, at this time we are going with a two hour delay for Monday, January 30th, however if the snowfall totals, storm timing, and road conditions worsen this may change. Stay safe, Laura
