The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released its “Initial Fall Reopening Guidance” for the upcoming 2020 - 2021 school year. Within this guidance, every school district in the Commonwealth was required to develop a reopening plan with three scenarios for reopening: Full - In-Person, Hybrid, and Full Remote.
Enlisting students, teachers, parents, nurses, teacher assistants, custodians, our school physician, a member of the Medfield School Committee, a member of the Medfield Board of Health, the entire leadership team and other staff they began the process of planning the three scenarios. Building-Based Teams were established and met every Wednesday and Thursday, while the District Advisory Committee met every Tuesday. The District Advisory Committee made recommendations based on the Building-Based Team’s weekly presentation. At the end of July, they drafted plans (and a lot of questions) for each scenario in all five schools.
Below is a link to the development plans for each scenario.
