Dear Trotter Families,
As you know, Boston Public Schools has announced that all students in grades K0-Grade 8 will start remotely on September 21, 2020. Students will transition to a hybrid model (two days at school, three days remote) according to the schedule below. The district has placed students in two groups, A and B. These groups will be announced to families as we get closer to starting school. You can access the Superintendent's letter to families in many languages here: www.bostonpublicschools.org/reopening
Thursday, October 1: Students with the highest needs
Thursday, October 15 (B) & Monday, October 19 (A): Grades K0, K1, K2 Thursday, October 22 (B) & Monday, October 26 (A): Grades 1 - 3
Thursday, November 5 (B) & Monday, November 9 (A): Grades 4 - 8
Families also have the option to choose a fully remote schedule for your child. You should have received a survey from the superintendent on August 21, 2020 asking you to choose the learning model for your child (hybrid or remote) and whether or not you want BPS transportation by August 28, 2020. If you did not get this survey, please call 617-635-9520.
We look forward to seeing all of our amazing students virtually, on September 21, 2020. Please feel free to reach out using the email addresses below if you have any questions.
