This week, as temperatures rose from the 50s to the high 80s with barely a pause in between, many Harvard residents’ thoughts naturally turned to Bare Hill Pond for warm-weather recreation.

In what Superintendent Linda Dwight called a difficult choice, the School Committee decided this week to outsource custodial work at the Harvard schools.

The Conservation Commission succeeded in buying 24 acres of land along Mass. Ave. that had long been on its wish list, but doing so greatly reduced its cash reserves.

Unexpected savings in teachers’ salaries next year will be enough to cover the rising cost of bus service, Superintendent Linda Dwight told the School Committee Monday night.

The School Committee voted unanimously to create a new, part-time position for a dean of students at the middle and high school levels as a one-year pilot for 2016-17.
