Milford Superintendent Robert Tremblay on Thursday plans to respond to a School Committee member who earlier this month asked why it took more than three weeks to provide information about students who were leaving gym class to take part in a music program.

At the committee's June 5 meeting, member Donald Quattrochio criticized Tremblay regarding a lack of information about Woodland Elementary students who have been allowed to leave physical education classes to take part in a strings music program, saying the matter violated school policy requiring students to participate in a specific number of gym class hours. 

"I am not trying to elminiate the strings program," he said at the June 5 meeting. "I think it's a wonderful program. What I'm trying to do is make sure we are following the policies we have put in place."

"Don's concern, and rightfully so, was that it was in violation of the district's wellness policy; I wasn't able to speak to that," said Tremblay this week, adding that he will respond in full on Thursday night. "I'm preparing a response to his report."

The committee will meet at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 19 in the Milford High School Teachers Resource Center.
