COVID Protocols August 2021

August 17, 2021

Dear Families:

As previously mentioned, the Joint School Committees met this morning to review and approve our COVID protocols and face mask policy as we open school on August 30.  We worked closely with the local health officials and considered all aspects of the guidance from the CDC, DESE, and MDPH.  As we did since the start of the pandemic, the local data also played a significant role in guiding the decisions.  The intent is to being the year and then review the protocols on a regular basis.

We will have all students in masks regardless of vaccine status to the start the year.  We will also follow a number of the protocols that were in place last year.  Please review the following two documents:
