Governor Charlie Baker extended statewide school closures in Massachusetts through May 4th to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. As we get closer to May 4th we expect an update on the reopening of Randolph Public Schools. Attached to this communication please find a letter to families from Jeffery Riley, Commissioner of Education, in multiple languages.
Please see the attached letter to families from DESE all versions of the letter are also on the COVID-19 website (http://www.doe.mass.edu/covid19/). The letter addresses the remote learning recommendations, as well as updates on a range of other matters related to the school closures.
According to the Center for Disease Control, “the flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. In general, the flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms are more common and intense. Colds are usually milder than the flu.”
We hope you and your family are healthy and safe. We understand how you are feeling during this time and how this may cause additional anxiety and stress. We recognize that there are a lot of new territories and some uncertainties that we are all going through at this point. However, the Randolph Public Schools staff and related service providers are here to provide you support during this time.
