The FLRSD school community continues to see hopeful signs as we look forward to warmer weather and the spring season. This week President Biden, Governor Baker, and DESE Commissioner Riley all reinforced our priority to see all students safely return to in-person instruction. The state released new school and transportation guidance removing restrictions and their recommendations remain consistent with our well communicated local covid plan and timeline. The FLRSD model continues to allow for both cohorts to successfully attend in-person instruction at all levels as we approach the 100th school day on Monday, March 1, 2021. The updated second semester calendar through June 16, 2021 remains posted on our website. The district will continue to safely plan for future in-person instruction. Our next target date is: Monday, March 8, 2021 for grades 2, 4, 6, and 12. Future plans should be announced later in March. The FLRSD website continues to provide information on our District Dashboard to report positive cases and close contacts at each school on a daily basis. The website also provides weekly town covid information from the state and weekly DESE covid cases for all schools in the Commonwealth which continue to trend downward. We are seeing the lowest positivity rates in both communities going back to the fall of 2020. The FLRSD dashboard reported nine (9) new positive COVID cases this past week impacting our school district community. Our 2020-21 motto of “Respect, Patience, and Flexibility” combined with our district theme of “Raise the Bar'' continues to drive our decision making and appears to mirror upcoming state plans. We have already completed (99) school days in this academic year. The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School District will continue to use the One-Call Communication System to provide families with necessary safety updates and school cancellation or delay information. I will use the news outlets for a true “snow day/delay” call only. The safety of our students and staff remains my top priority. Our next school committee meeting will be Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. Our agenda will be available on our website under Announcements. Please continue to stay safe and enjoy the upcoming weekend. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call 508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or email me at rmedeiros@freelake.org. The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but is setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark” - Artist - Michelangelo
