Governor Baker Orders Schools Closed Through May 4

March 25, 2020

Dear Families:

Governor Baker announced an extension of the school closure through May 4, 2020, at his press conference this afternoon.  He and Commissioner of Education Jeff Riley discussed the goal that learning will continue during this time.  I am actively working with the administrators and teachers to craft the plan for what that will look like for all students.  We also expect further guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education as to this plan, including special education and English Language Learners.  In the course of this planning, we will account for the challenges we all face in balancing the needs of work, family, isolation and emotional and physical wellbeing.

I am enormously grateful for the strong foundation the faculty built over the past ten days for remote learning during this very difficult time.  Please watch for additional information and specific details over the coming days.
