Mask Announcement from Governor Charlie Baker

As of May 18, 2021, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will no longer require masks for outdoor activities like recess and Physical Education classes.

In addition, they have indicated that they will now allow for the sharing of objects in classrooms, in both K-12 and childcare settings. This guidance will remain in effect beyond May 29.

Finally, it is also very important to note that the Governor and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education have communicated today that face coverings will continue to be required indoors at all schools for PreK -12 staff and students.

Thanks for your ongoing family efforts to keep everyone safe within our schools.
