COVID-19 Task Force Update and Anti-Racist Resources

June 4, 2020

Dear Families:

I wanted to provide an update on the COVID-19 Task Force discussions.  This week, each of the COVID-19 Task Force Working Groups met as did the Building-Based Task Forces.  We are grateful for the input of everyone who is engaged with these ten committees.   If you would still like to participate but haven’t heard from us yet, please watch for Focus Group invitations over the coming week.  The District Task Force meets on Wednesday, June 10 at which point we will be reviewing a big picture vision for the 2020-2021 school year and a brief assessment of the work ahead.  It seemed valuable to share the recent guidance released by the state to open camps and daycares since we expect much of it may translate to the directives we expect from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education later this month.


The Challenge Success program with whom we partner on student wellness posted anti-racist resources for parents. They are posted here:

We are finalizing plans for parent forums next week to allow for discussion and support.  Please watch for details shortly.


Finally, below I share the philanthropic efforts of a CCHS student to support those on the frontline.  We are so proud of the many efforts of our students to support others!




My name is Julia Zipoli and I am a sophomore at Concord Carlisle High School. Recently I founded a community service organization called, Caring for the Frontlines – Concord and Carlisle. I am raising money from members of the community and beyond and am also receiving donations from local businesses so that I may recognize essential workers who have worked so hard to keep the community going. I am emailing today regarding this project. So far, I have raised $900 from the community and family members and have begun to recognize one group of essential workers this week with the delivery of pizza for the Carlisle Police Department on Tuesday. Tomorrow, I will be delivering pizza to the Concord Police Department.  To contribute, please use this link:
