With the safety of our students and staff as our primary concern, we continue to navigate the rapidly-evolving situation regarding COVID-19. Please read the following message from League School.
League School update 3/30/2020:
Per Governor Baker’s order, League School will remain closed until at least May 4, 2020. This is an extension of the original order which instructed schools to close until April 6, 2020. This is tremendously disappointing, overwhelming, and frustrating for all of us. But we recognize it is for the safety and well-being of our students, families, and staff.
League School will continue to be in contact with the Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools and The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for guidance and support. We will continue to monitor issues related to COVID-19 through a variety of organizations, including The Center for Disease Control, The World Health Organization, and The Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
As an extended closure brings more uncertainty to the education of our students, League School’s focus will switch from enrichment activities and maintenance of skills to a remote learning model. This will be in the form of both educator-directed and student self-directed learning. It will also require substantial planning and coordination by our teachers and staff. Examples of remote learning tools include large-group video conference calls, email, work packets, projects, reading lists, online learning platforms and other resources to effectively engage with students.
The residential program will remain open for students who are currently there. As of right now, our phenomenal residential staff have been utilizing precautions detailed by The Center for Disease Control and The Massachusetts Department of Public Health. League School has created two floors within our residential facilities to quarantine any students with a temperature or who are displaying any other symptoms of COVID-19. League School also has significantly limited the number of outside visitors that can enter the buildings. League School’s nursing department has been orchestrating scheduled temperature checks for both staff and students. League School’s nursing department has been integral in ensuring that all universal safety precautions are in place and have been working 24-7 to support our students and our staff.
These are definitely uncertain times, but League School cannot thank everyone enough for their patience and cooperation.
