As a reminder, the MA COVID-19 travel order is still in effect. If anyone travels/returns to MA from a high risk state (all states except Hawaii are currently high risk), they must be tested for COVID-19 72 hours prior to arriving in MA. If not obtained before entry to Massachusetts, a test may be obtained after arrival. However, all such arriving travelers must immediately begin the 10-day quarantine until a negative test result has been received. Testing for children 10 years and younger, who are traveling with an adult from their household, is not required. They may return to school after the adult receives a negative PCR test result.
Here is a link to the Mass.gov website with more information on which states are high risk and require testing for return to MA.

A negative PCR test is required for return to school. Please forward this to your school nurse.
We are relying on everyone to follow these rules in order to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.
