COVID-19 Update #6

March 15, 2020 --

Dear Parents,

This email is a follow up to my recent phone call announcing the three week closure of all schools in Massachusetts.  Medfield will not be able to reopen until Tuesday, April 7, 2020. As promised, I've included links to some helpful information. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to practice social distancing during this three week time period.

I'm resending this helpful link from the Medfield Board of Health:

I tweeted this excellent article by Dr. Bitton yesterday:

These are two great resources for talking to children about COVID-19:

There will be another update sent to you tomorrow afternoon from the principals or me. Thanks again for your patience during this unusual time.

Sincerely,

Jeff Marsden
