LEOMINSTER – Schools in the city will resume blended learning this month as part of a phased plan that began on Monday when all sub-separated programs, including Applied Behavior Analysis (Special Education), Skills de vie and the North West SSC met in person.
Leominster Public Schools Superintendent Paula Deacon described the reopening plan in a letter dated Sunday.
She said CTEi and LCE are expected to resume blended learning on Thursday; Kindergarten to Grade 2 students on Mondays; and junior kindergarten, grades 3 through 8, and high school students on February 22 following the February vacation week.
“Tomorrow is the start of another month and the reopening of our schools,” Deacon said in the letter sent in an email Sunday. “As excited as we all are, we need to remember to help our children adhere to all the guidelines that still surround us. Respecting the rules of masking, social distancing and good hygiene will allow us to move forward. “
All district staff and families must complete a daily attestation notice; people should stay home if they detect symptoms of COVID-19.
“We all want our schools to be healthy and… OPEN,” Deacon wrote. “I want to thank everyone who helped bring us back to this place. Our staff, transportation schedules, catering service and buildings have been streamlined to support students to the best of our ability. It will take all of us to continue the process. “
