Reopening Framework For Fall 2020 - June 9, 2020
English - Spanish

June 25, 2020

Dear Lynn Public Schools Families,

Today, Governor Baker’s office and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released the initial guidance on reopening schools this fall.  No doubt, a high degree of thought and care went into the development of this guidance.  We share the goal of a safe return for as many students as possible to in-person school settings in order to optimally meet students’ social, emotional, and academic needs.

With the release of the initial guidance, we are continuing, not starting, our efforts to prepare for reopening this fall.  Keep in mind that we have already established target focus areas with identified leadership and specific tasks within each focus area. The release of the guidance will add additional focus and specificity to our efforts.  We have already begun reviewing the guidance to understand how it impacts our planning in the Lynn Public Schools.  We also acknowledge that these initial guidelines do not address every topic and that there will be additional guidance coming in late July.  I welcome you to read the full document.  Below are four key components:

  • Current medical research supports a safe in-person return to school.
  • Preventive measures include masks/face coverings, physical distancing, handwashing, and cleaning frequently-touched surfaces
  • Masks/face coverings will be required for all students in Grade 2 and above and for all adults; while they are recommended for students in Grade 1 and below
  • According to the medical community, a minimum physical distance of three feet has been established

We are required to develop three separate plans - one for return to in-person instruction with safety requirements, one for full remote learning, and one for hybrid learning that combines in-person and remote learning.  Based upon the current medical situation, the expectation is that, in large part, students will return to in-person instruction in September.  This is subject to change based upon how the medical situation develops.

We acknowledge that there are likely more questions than answers at this time.  As information is provided and as our plans evolve, we will continue to communicate with you.
