FRAMINGHAM – The students with the highest needs in the Framingham Public Schools will return to their classrooms on February 3, announced the district this week.

About 500-550 students, considered highest needs, were in the classrooms in October & November 2020, but the entire district went remote learning on December 7.

The district will be “extending COVID-19 PCR testing to all students returning in Phases I and II,” announced the district tonight, january 23.

“Consent information will be provided to families of Phase I & Phase II students in the coming days. PCR testing for students will shift to pooled testing once that is rolled out with the return of students in Phases III & IV,” said the district to families tonight.

“Testing of students in school will prove to be a much more reliable indicator than relying solely upon community health metrics. We encourage full participation,” said the Framingham Public Schools.

Staff were told they were expected back in their classrooms on February 1.
