“Just after 6:20 p.m. today, Governor Baker ordered all K-12 public schools in Massachusetts to be closed and suspend operations for the next three weeks through April 7, 2020. This announcement adds an additional week and one day onto our current plan. In addition, a more restrictive public gathering rule now bans all gatherings of 25 or more people,” said Tremblay in an email to families. “We will continue to share resources to help families cope with this evolving situation as we all work to support each other during this unprecedented time. We will continue to keep you updated as any new information becomes available.”

Both Natick Public Schools, Ashland Public Schools and Keefe Technical High School had announced they would be closed this week.

With the Governor’s announcement, they will now be closed through April 6.
