  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    This message is to inform you that shortly after I sent the correspondence to the community last evening regarding the acceptance of our 80% vaccination attestation at Cohasset High School by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), and shortly before last evening’s Cohasset School Committee, I received a call from DESE apologizing and rescinding the formal approval they had sent previously due to their reconsideration of our shared building space between middle and high school students. According to DESE we now have to meet the 80% vaccination threshold at both our middle school and high school (combined percentage of total vaccinated students and staff) in order to have the opportunity to remove masks for vaccinated individuals within the building. Although we are over the 80% attestation at the high school, when combined with the middle school we stand at 71.4% vaccinated individuals.

    Our most up to date vaccination attestation percentages are as follows:

    Cohasset High School Student Vaccination Attestation (per MIIS): 86%

    Cohasset High School Staff Vaccination Attestation: 62.9%

    Cohasset Middle School Student Vaccination Attestation (per MIIS): 57.5%

    Cohasset Middle School Staff Vaccination Attestation: 51.8% (please keep in mind that currently only 35% of our sixth graders will be old enough on January 1 to receive vaccination)

    Total Vaccination Attestation for Middle and High School Building: 71.4%

    These percentages were presented at last evening’s School Committee Meeting. At the meeting, Cohasset Teachers Association (CTA) representation was reminded of the importance of their members attesting to their vaccination. We sincerely hope the CTA will cooperate with the community to help with this important effort.

    If you have not yet attested to your child’s vaccination, please email you child’s school nurse. We will keep you informed as we move forward collecting data to reach the 80% vaccination rate.

    Sincerely,

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    I am writing to remind you that the mask mandate at Cohasset High School will be discussed during tonight’s Cohasset School Committee Meeting, which will take place at Willcutt Commons at 6:00PM. As is the usual, the meeting can be attended in-person, and it is being streamed live via Zoom and Facebook.

     Yesterday, due to Cohasset High School exceeding the 80% vaccination threshold, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE) granted approval for Cohasset High School (not other schools in the district) to lift the mask mandate requirement for vaccinated individuals pending Cohasset School Committee and Cohasset Board of Health (BoH) approval. Please note that regardless of any decision made by the Cohasset School Committee and Cohasset Board of Health, in alignment with statewide guidance, unvaccinated students and staff at Cohasset High School will still be required to wear masks as indicated in the September 27 DESE guidance. It also should be noted that if the decision is made to modify the mask mandate at Cohasset High School, that, regardless of vaccination status, individuals at Cohasset High School may certainly choose to continue to wear a mask while in school. Any choice to wear a mask should not be viewed as an indication of one’s vaccination status. We look forward to your participation in the discussion this evening. 

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Patrick Sullivan, Ed.D.

  • This is Superintendent, Dr. Patrick Sullivan, with a message regarding bus stop relocation on Elm Street due to the water main work, which begins tomorrow. As the Cohasset Police have informed the public, tomorrow morning, work begins on the Elm Street watermain. Students who have stops on Elm Street should please proceed to the end of Elm closest to their stop. Elm street will be closed to through traffic, and there will be bus stops on either end for students. Please be aware that there may be some delays, and that detours will be in effect for some roads in town. We will keep you updated as the work progresses.
