Governor Baker announced this afternoon that public schools will be closed until Monday, May 4th. Candidly, state and federal level communication around these safety measures has been happening spontaneously and with urgency. I am sure this new closure extension raises many questions for you and your family, and our answers may take some time to develop. This Friday, I am meeting with the Commissioner of Education, Jeffrey Riley, to learn more about this decision and expectations for districts moving forward. Until then, there is no change in course; teachers and students will work together as they have done over the last two weeks.
