Updates and a Social Distance Birthday Party Parade

March 21, 2020

Dear Families:

I hope this sunny Saturday allowed you some time outside.  I know my dog enjoyed a walk.  I do think the pets are the ones benefitting most with all of us at home.

I came across a creative approach to social distancing and celebrations that I thought you would enjoy while also serving as a reminder.  This middle schooler was supposed to have a birthday party but had a parade of friends instead.

Yesterday, I recorded a video public service announcement with other Concord town leaders (Select Board Chair, Town Moderator, Police and Fire Chiefs, Town Manager) about the town’s response to COVID-19.  It is posted here and will run on Minuteman Media Network:

A recording of yesterday’s Virtual Superintendent’s Coffee is posted.  Thank you to the 185 people who attended.   We will hold these sessions weekly.

Should you wish to review previous emails, they are all posted on the web page:

We are providing 400 masks to Emerson Hospital tomorrow.  I am in constant communication with them.  If you are aware of any available, please let us know.  They are working on prototypes to sew or to create them with 3D printers and will stay in touch if those options become plausible.

For ongoing updates from the College Board about SAT’s and AP courses, I am providing those links again as well.  AP testing updates were posted yesterday.
