Initial Fall School Reopening Guidance

Today, Governor Baker’s office and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released their initial guidance about reopening schools this fall.

The full document can be found on our website www.bluehills.org or at http://www.doe.mass.edu/covid19/,…

I am deeply saddened that the hurt and injustice in our world, our nation, and our community exists. Our counselors remain available for anyone who would like to talk through or discuss these important issues.

Thank you to those who have reached out about this specific…
