FRAMINGHAM – Last month, the Massachusetts National Guard began helping the Framingham Public School District with driving vans to transport students to and from schools.
Now, the National Guard will, once again, assist the school district’s pooled testing team.
“Framingham is one of 10 districts that are receiving support from the National Guard,” said Superintendent Bob Tremblay to staff this afternoon, October 19.
“Trained and uniformed members of our National Guard will assist our testing team with pooled testing as we continue to expand this effort across our schools. Coupled with vaccinations (where possible), COVID testing has proven to be an important component of our safe return to school,” said Supt. Tremblay.
“The Massachusetts National Guard assistance to Framingham demonstrates its community-based legacy of serving the Commonwealth in times of need since 1636 both at home and abroad through community support. Framingham is proud to be the home of a National Guard Armory and very appreciative of our state-level partners for coordinating this unique support. We are grateful for the transportation and testing support from the Massachusetts Army National Guard,” said Supt. Tremblay.
