Schools Will Remain Closed for the Rest of this School Year

Posted April 21, 2020

Dear Staff and Families,

I write today with an important update from Governor Baker who announced during today’s press conference that schools will remain closed for the rest of this school year. Falmouth Public Schools will continue with remote learning via the Continuity of Learning Plans until June 26, 2020. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will be recommending districts concentrate on essential standards in addition to deeper learning of standards already taught. Our district is positioned well to follow this guidance since we began introducing new learning in our plans on April 6, 2020. 

Based on this announcement of extended closure, I will provide you with additional updates as more specific plans are made for Falmouth Public Schools. We look forward to re-engaging with staff and students next week. I hope everyone stays safe and well.
