In July 2020, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released the Initial Fall Reopening Guidance with additional plans to follow as schools planned to reopen schools in the fall of 2020.  The DESE guidance document requires students and staff to:

  • Maintain social distances of three to six feet (depending on the activity)
  • Wear face-masks (grades 2-12)
  • Organize students at the middle and high school levels by cohorts to minimize interaction

The guidance, endorsed by medical professionals, sets the expectation that children need to be back in school  while minimizing risk. On this page, you will find important information related to school opening along with links, documents, presentations and webpages that provide additional information.
