Message from the Superintendent

Dear Abington School Community,
 

I am writing with an update on our planning process for the start of a new school year in Abington.  We all know that the start of the year will bring a great many challenges and changes. 

This year, Massachusetts schools will be delaying the first day of school for students to better prepare for a safe and successful reopening. Teachers and staff will be reporting on Aug. 31 and will engage in training, professional development, collaboration and planning for ten (10) days. Student learning will begin on September 16, 2020.

Our plans for the opening of school continues to be guided by monitoring of public health data in Abington and Massachusetts, and we are encouraged that indicators about the virus continue to remain low. The Commonwealth’s careful and disciplined approach has enabled our state gradually to begin reopening, in part because of strong compliance with health and safety precautions. In addition, we have been using the school re-opening guidance provided by DESE, consistent with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Pediatric Association. Following these requirements, we can make significant changes in our school schedules and operating procedures to make a partial return to in-person learning both safe and successful. Therefore, our current planning is for a hybrid or blended at school and at home return for the start of the year. Under this hybrid plan, students will be in-person two days and learning at home 3 days a week.   We know that you have childcare and plans for your family that need to be coordinated.  We will provide much more information and detail as soon as possible.

This approach will require strategies to ensure physical distancing, as well as a series of other critical health and safety measures, including wearing face coverings, washing hands frequently, cleaning and sanitizing facilities, screening regularly for symptoms of illness, and staying home from school when sick, among others. Our planning process includes a comprehensive set of strategies and investments to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus.
