We have been made aware of a few students at Masconomet who have may have been exposed to coronavirus. None of these students are currently exhibiting symptoms. However, out of an abundance of caution, the Masconomet Regional School District will be closed from Friday, March 13th through Sunday, March 15th so that we may conduct a deep cleaning of the building. The current plan is to re-open at our regular time on Monday, March 16th. As this is a fluid situation, please look for additional announcements over the weekend.
In an effort to slow the spread of the virus through our communities and to limit the exposure of students to people from the outside, we will take additional steps:
- As of today, all field trips are cancelled until further notice.
- Effective immediately, all events and meetings on school grounds outside of the regular school day are cancelled until further notice. Student clubs, activities, and extra help sessions that occur immediately after school will still be held for the time being.
- The start of the spring sports season will be pushed back to March 23rd.
We will continue to monitor the situation and re-assess these cancellations as we learn more. Please remember that these decisions are not made lightly and are taken to maximize the safety of students, staff and members of the community.
