Somerville Back to School Plan

Please note that this is a living document that will continue to evolve. The Somerville Public Schools Fall 2020 Reopening Plan is intended to serve as a guideline for the 2020–2021 school year in the midst of the Covid-19 global pandemic and new health and safety requirements that are informing and impacting the way we teach and learn. This plan has been informed by guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Somerville Department of Health and Human Services, expert epidemiologists and immunologists, and student, family, and staff input that we have solicited over the last several months.
