    Dear Clipper Families,

    We set sail into the new year and completed our first week of school. It’s so great to be back. We are ready to welcome students in-person on Monday, while continuing to connect with our remote learners. 

    As we begin in-person learning, we appreciate your partnership in keeping all staff and students safe. Please notify us when your child(ren) have tested positive or have been exposed to a positive COVID-19 close contact. We are ready to respond quickly with support, contact tracing within the school and district, and notify families if a quarantine is required by following the Massachusetts Department of Health and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education guidance. 

    As support to the district and to families, I would like to introduce you to the FPS Public Health Nurse, Jennifer Reissfelder. The Public Health Nurse is available to answer COVID-19 related questions and provide contact tracing services as needed. Ms. Reissfelder’s phone number is 774- 392- 6477 and email is jreissfelder@falmouth.k12.ma.us. She is available from 7:30 AM-4:00 PM to answer any questions you may have or to receive confidential information of a positive case. If your concern is an emergency, you should contact your Primary Care Physician.

    As we draw closer to in-person learning, it is critical you understand the need for checking your child’s symptoms each morning, notifying your school nurse if your child has COVID-like symptoms, and keeping your child home when sick. For your convenience, we created the following two flyers as a reminder of the required quarantine timelines should your child need to quarantine. Please review the following two flyers to help you understand the decisions we will make in regard to positive cases and exposures to positive cases. 

    If you were unable to join us Wednesday evening for the family question and answer hour, you may view the session at Falmouth Public Schools Family Forum.

    Please continue to send your general questions and concerns to info@falmouth.k12.ma.us. If you need help with or have a question related to technology please contact our IT Department at cbrepair@falmouth.k12.ma.us

    The faculty and staff are so happy to begin the school year. We have enjoyed reconnecting with your children. Thank you once again for your patience and understanding during the preparation to set sail into this new school year.
