Updated Timeline for Reopening and Phasing Additional Students to In-Person Learning
Monday, February 1: High Priority students for in-person learning.
The students returning for high in-person priority include:
All other students are eligible for two days of instruction each week, with students in Group A in school on Mondays and Tuesdays and students in Group B in school on Thursdays and Fridays. All buildings will be fully cleaned and sanitized on Wednesdays, with remote learning for all students.
We are planning to follow this tentative schedule:
Monday, March 1 & Thursday, March 4: Students in K0 - Grade 3 (Groups A & B)
Monday, March 15 & Thursday, March 18: Students in Grades 4 - 8 (Groups A & B)

As we prepare for our students' return, you can help us by abiding by all public health guidance. Please continue to wear your mask any time you leave your home, wash your hands frequently, stay home if you are not feeling well, and get tested regularly for COVID-19 at any free City of Boston testing site. To find a testing site and for additional COVID-19 information and resources, visit boston.gov/covid. We look forward to a return to hybrid learning!
