School closure in the spring brought many unanticipated changes. Teachers, staff, and families worked together to support students and each other. Now, we focus on reopening schools and the start of the school year. There are opportunities to connect with students and continue to provide them with high quality English language development services and meaningful access to content instruction. Everett Public Schools will begin the 2020-2021 school year with 100% remote learning using a staged approach to reopening. As the numbers of positive COVID-19 cases and deaths continue across the state and in our region, it has been clear that at this time our remote learning model is the safest way to form the foundation for student learning this fall.
