Welcome back to School 2021-2022

Welcome to Richard J. Murphy K-8 School Year 2021-2022! We are excited and honored to have the opportunity to partner with you this school year to support the growth of your child.  The Murphy staff prides ourselves on our commitment to a safe and welcoming environment, rigorous academics, and equitable support for all students and families.

School begins Thursday September 9, 2021 for grades 1-8 and Monday September 13, 2021 for all K students. Our school hours are 8:30AM to 3:10PM.    It is important that students arrive on time for a smooth transition from home to school. During the first week of school, we will provide more information regarding documents that need to be filled out.

Please be reminded that students are mandated to wear masks inside the school building, so please prepare additional masks if possible. In the near future, we will also be sending out information regarding our school store where you can purchase uniforms for your child. We are excited to be able to offer Murphy T-shirts and hoodies. General Boston Public Schools back to school information including the most up to date safety protocols can be found here.


As always, we thank you for your commitment and collaboration to ensure the Murphy K-8 remains a “First Choice for All Families.” We look forward to meeting and learning with all our students on the first day of school!
