Updates will continue to be posted on this website. Our priority is the health and safety of our students and families. This page will contain the latest information we receive from the Millis Board of Health, the MA Department of Public Health, and the Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC). You can also access up-to-date information about COVID-19 on the website MA DPH COVID-199.
From Appendix A of the DESE Initial Fall Reopening Guidance (6/25/2020):
The evidence suggests that children, particularly younger children, are less likely than adults to be infected with COVID-19. Furthermore, if infected, children may be less likely to transmit COVID-19 to others.
Based on these themes, the health and safety recommendations throughout this guidance, as well as considering the key features of school programming at different grade spans, we believe the evidence supports a safe in-person return to school with implementation varying for elementary, middle school, and high school.
