Letter to Parents Regarding Reopening Plan

Hello Frontier and Union #38 Families,

I am pleased to send you the Draft of the Reopening Plan for the fall.  There is a tremendous amount of work put into these plans by our committees and administration and I want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who gave so much of their time and expertise.  This is a draft.  Many areas of this draft will slide easily to building based reopening teams for execution, while other areas still require discussion and changes.  Your input is an integral part of this process and we welcome you to use the link below to provide your feedback.  

COVID Wellness Resources

Frontier Regional & Union #38 District Faculty have worked together to develop a list of resources to address health and wellness needs of our school community.  These lists offer information and activities that are important for children's physical health and social/emotional success. 

State Reopening Initial Guidance

Hello Frontier and Union#38 Families:

Today, Governor Baker’s office and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released their initial guidance about reopening schools this fall.  Over the coming weeks, we will be reviewing the guidance to begin to understand how it impacts the reopening of our schools. They also acknowledge that these initial guidelines do not address every topic and that there will be additional guidance coming throughout the summer.  The full initial fall school reopening guidance document can be found at http://www.doe.mass.edu/covid19/return-to-school/guidance.docx

UPDATE - Message to Our Community awareness

Dear Frontier Regional and School Union #38 Families,

 

Upon communicating with various members of our community and reflecting on the letter and resources that were sent out last Thursday, we would like to correct some mistakes made and to expand upon some ideas shared.

The District commits to ongoing social justice training and growth. We acknowledge the systemic racism that exists in our society's policies and institutions. We recognize that the prevailing homogeneity in our district leadership team has left out the voices and experiences of our community members of color and failed to provide support and acknowledgment of the stress, grief, and trauma that people of color are living with because of recent events as well as throughout our nation's racist history.
