    circulars, over the last week

    Both the schools distributed circulars to students and their parents over the last week. But there have been mixed reactions to the new rule. Some students are quite unhappy with the directive.

    Please explain the highlighed ones.

    1. circulars: information circulars, I reckon. They are documents outlining important matters (such as updating students and parents on attendance and absence issues) to be discussed at the annual meeting. But I'm not 100% sure.

    2. over the last week - (syn.) during the last week

    1. Yes, a circular is something printed for wide (circular) distribution, usually just a single sheet. (The New York Times is widely distributed, but it is not a circular.)

    "Bulletin" would be another word choice. A "flyer" is usually an advertisement.
