Downloadable PDF file: Somerville Public Schools Reopening Plan - 08/18/2020 (approved by School Committee 08/17/2020)

The Somerville Public Schools Fall 2020 Reopening Plan is intended to serve as a guideline as we enter the 2020-2021 school year in the midst of a 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. Our goal has been to develop a plan that will ensure a high-quality, comprehensive learning experience for all students, while keeping the health and safety of our students, staff, and families at the forefront of our planning. Planning for school re-entry in the fall of 2020 is ongoing, and we appreciate our community's continued input and feedback in this important process. Please note that this is a living document that will continue to evolve.
