As you know, news about precautionary responses to COVID-19 has been rapidly evolving. A few items I wanted to share with families this morning:
1.The Cheer Team’s State competition scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled. No word on a reschedule date.
2.The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) has postponed the start of the spring sports season to March 30th. Teams are not allowed to hold practices until then. No games can begin until 11 days after practices have begun (including the first day). This means that no games or meets will be held until at least April 10th.
3.The Swim Team banquet scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled.
4.Open gym for boys’ and girls’ basketball has been cancelled.
5.The Equity Steering Committee meeting and the public tour of the African-American history museum scheduled for Wednesday evening have both been cancelled.
We promise we will keep families informed as quickly as we can as this situation unfolds in the coming hours and days.
Finally, we are aware that this constant bombardment of information can be overwhelming for all of us. Many of our students are feeling the stress of so much change in such a short period of time. Our hope is to provide students with only the facts that we know, to help them understand what they can do to protect themselves and their loved ones, and to try to maintain as much normalcy and routine as we can. Thank you for your continued support of this important work we are engaged in together.
