Update from Superintendent Hamilton on plans being established for reopening of school

Dear Parents/Guardians,

     As we continue to plan for school reopening, I wanted to touch base around a few items. The building-based and district-wide task forces have been meeting to develop the three plans mandated by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (full return, hybrid and full remote). Our teams have worked tirelessly to create thoughtful plans which incorporate the DESE guidelines for safety, and in most cases, have exceeded these guidelines. We have added to our nursing staff, ordered and received personal protective equipment (PPE), adopted online registration capabilities for new students, increased our number of technological devices to ensure access for all students, and have been running both our special education extended summer school program as well as our Champions daycare program, in-person, on campus. Next steps will include the submission of our reopening plans to DESE for approval, the adoption of a final reopening plan by the Holbrook School Committee and then the public release of the chosen plan with specific information around how fall will look for students and staff.

      The MA Commissioner of Education announced last week (*not a local decision), that 10 days at the onset of the school year will be used (in all districts) to allow for preparation and training around new protocols, safety measures and instruction for staff. This is important work, but the change will impact the original start date for students on our calendar. I will get you information on our new start date as soon as possible. As always, thank you for your continued support of the Holbrook Public Schools.

Thank you,

Julie Hamilton
