2021-2022 School Year

Commissioner Jeff Riley and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) have mandated that all public K-12 students, educators, and staff be required to wear masks in school buildings through October 1. Masks are required on buses per federal mandate. As a result of the Commissioner’s Mask Mandate, the School Committee voted on August 24, 2021, to approve a district face-covering policy.  

Please review the Back to School presentation from the August 24th School Committee meeting for more information on the Health and Operational plans for our return to school.

Please also see the 2021-2022 District Reference Guide which provides essential health and safety information for all students, staff, and families. This document will be updated regularly if conditions and circumstances change.
