Chelsea Public Schools - Bridge to Success

Message from Superintendent Bourque

Tragically, we have once again lost a young life due to senseless street violence. We want to offer you support through the process of coming to terms with this tragic loss of life. On Monday, January 16, 2017, Martin Luther King Day, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. we will hold drop-in support services at Chelsea High School for any student or family who would like to talk. Parents and guardians are encouraged to drop by Chelsea High School or reach out to their child’s school social worker for recommendations on how to hold conversations with their child on this sensitive topic. Please see Dr. Bourque's complete statement for full details.


Chelsea Public Schools is a gateway school system that welcomes and educates ALL students and families.

Teachers, administrators, and support staff, from pre-kindergarten through grade twelve are dedicated to providing Chelsea students with a Bridge to Success, a commitment that ALL students will achieve at high levels, think critically, and graduate from our school system college and career ready.

Superintendent, Mary Bourque
