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.
