Responsible Return

Dear Worcester County families and community, 

From the very beginning of our school system's response to the COVID-19 pandemic in March, I have been incredibly proud of the way in which our school system community has handled this crisis. Now, as we look toward September, my pride has only grown as we unveil our draft Responsible Return model for the 2020-2021 school year.

Our team has been hard at work for the past several months to prepare for an unprecedented Back to School experience, all the while adapting to the ever-evolving challenges that still face us during this time.

While we recognize that there is no single model or solution that can fulfill the instructional, operational or logistical nuances that this pandemic has created, I am proud of the work and collaboration that has gone into crafting this draft model. I also look forward to gaining further insight from all of our stakeholder groups in the weeks to come through surveys, focus groups, and more.

Lastly, I want to stress to you that this model is a living document, as we recognize the need to be flexible and agile, shifting our approach as conditions change. We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we try to make the best decisions possible during these seemingly impossible circumstances.
