This decision was made in collaboration with the District COVID team, Harmony Grove administration, the school nurse, the Framingham Department of Public Health, and the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education,” said Principal Juliana Kessler Marcos, in an email to parents impacted last night, November 30.
Seven cases were reported at Harmony Grove Elementary School on Monday, November 29.

Students impacted in this classroom may return to school on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 provided they have a negative COVID test and have no COVID-like symptoms.
“We will be working together with the Office of Teaching and Learning and the classroom teacher to address the students’ academic needs. We appreciate the continued support and understanding from our community as we navigate the challenges of the pandemic,” wrote the Principal.
