• MPS Extended Learning

    Dear Middleborough Families,

    Recently, Governor Baker announced that schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts would not reopen until May 4, 2020. As such, please note that beginning on Monday, April 6, 2020, the Middleborough Public Schools will now transition into our second phase of remote learning based on the unique needs of our local community and the latest guidance and directions received from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and other agencies.

    Many of these general district protocols and expectations are described in our Extended Learning Plan and additional direction and school specific information and guidance will be provided by each of our school principals in separate communications.

    As a school system, we will continue to provide Grab-n-Go breakfast and lunch for those who need nutritional assistance. Please note that these meals will be handed out Monday-Friday, except for Good Friday and Patriots Day. In these cases, extra food will be handed out prior to these days. During the traditional April vacation (April 21-24) week we will be distributing meals.

    During this school closure period, we will continue to work to support our students and families so as to keep learning alive by encouraging intellectual curiosity promoted through the extended learning opportunities being shared through our Extended Learning website. Through our collaborative partnership between home and school, we hope that these learning opportunities will keep students interested and engaged while reducing the amount of time spent on video games during traditional school hours. By promoting active engagement coupled with routines and a schedule, we will enable a smoother transition upon our return to school. 

    As a school system, we are grateful for the contributions of our administrative team and the coordination/compilation of these resources. In particular, many thanks go out to Dr. Melanie Gates and our P.P.S. Director Carolyn Lyons, J.D. whose levels of expertise in each of their departments were integral in making this effort a reality. I would also like to acknowledge the work of our Food Services Director Rebecca Bagnell and the hard working ladies who make the Grab-n-Go meals program a reality each day...along with the distribution crew which has included our School Resource Officers!

    These are indeed difficult times for us all as we live through the unprecedented challenges that this health crisis presents to us on a daily basis. Please do everything possible as individuals and family members to stay healthy physically, socially and emotionally. We will get through this...together!

     

    Best Regards,

    Brian E. Lynch

    Superintendent of Schools
