Important Information About School Reopening
October 7, 2020 - The Mayor announced that the citywide seven-day COVID-19 positivity rate has increased to 4.1%. That number is slightly higher than the 4% threshold that was recommended by public health officials in our agreement with the Boston Teachers Union as a marker for a return to all-remote learning. With that in mind, we have decided to delay the next phase of our safe return to schools, originally scheduled to start no sooner than October 15. The delay means that students who were scheduled to start school no sooner than October 15 will be shifted to start no sooner than October 22. We will review all data over the next week and make further decisions based on what we learn.
*K0-K2 students originally scheduled to being in-school classes October 15 or October 19 will now begin October 22 or October 26
