    Pool Testing results for Week of March 8th-March 12th: Negative!

    In Person/RLA Surveys: Please complete ONLY if you have not already completed it.

    Haverhill Public Schools are increasing our In-Person Learning opportunities. We hope to begin expanding learning time with our youngest students first and incrementally adding more in-person learning time for older students in the coming weeks. This comes in response to the request of our families and due to guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) which determined that elementary schools should shift to in-person learning five days a week beginning in April. As such we will begin to phase out the hybrid learning model beginning with Kindergarten and grade one.

    As of now we know that mask wearing, hand washing, and pooled COVID-19 surveillance testing will continue. Social distance will be a minimum of 3 feet between desks and transportation will have assigned seats with 2 students to a bench.

    We ask that you fill out the survey once for each child and that you carefully consider your choice as staffing may shift based on the choices of families.

    Please note this survey is for this current school year, and all changes are contingent upon our continued decline in the rate of COVID-19 in our community.

    Grade K-1 Only: The survey will be open for one week until March 15th
