When Student Is Quarantining

Roger Clap Families & Community Members, 

We want to share messages of rest and speedy recoveries for our students, staff, and families who are dealing with COVID and other health challenges during this local and national surge of COVID-19. 

If your child is quarantining at home as a result of a positive COVID-19 test or as an identified positive (and therefore not participating in the district’s Test & Stay program) there are resources available to ensure that your child continues to receive academic instruction. Ms. D, our family liaison, can help orient you and/or your child to navigating these resources. 


The Guide to Boston Public Schools for Parents & Families 

In this Guide, you will find a list of resources and information that will be useful for future meetings and community input opportunities that may take place in the coming months and years. Please familiarize yourself with these tools and the information provided to maximize our opportunity to fully participate in shared decisions.

All of our policies and rules have only one goal: to help prepare every student for success in college, career, and life in a safe, healthy, and welcoming learning environment. With your support and involvement, we can reach that goal together.

It is important that students are in uniform everyday for behavioral, safety and financial reasons. The uniform consists of a white or navy blue shirt and navy blue bottoms. Please make sure that your child follows the school uniform policy every day. We have donated uniforms if you are in need of uniforms for your child to ensure the dress code can be followed.
