  • Greetings Cohasset Staff and Faculty, Families, and Students,

     The past few months have required a great amount of flexibility, patience, and understanding from all members of the Cohasset Public Schools Learning Community. I personally want to thank everyone for their continued collaboration with and support of each other. These difficult times have also required us to stay true to our core values of physical and social-emotional safety, teaching the whole child, focusing on the social-emotional and academic development of our children and students, and community outreach, collaboration, and communication. The following document represents the work of many parents/guardians, students, and educators who collaborated to create plans that reflect the guidance provided by Commissioner of Education Jeff Riley and his Fall School Re-Entry group, which is made up of state health and educational officials. The input gathered from the Family Forums and School Committee Meetings significantly aided in the development of this plan. Additionally, operational teams created plans for each school that are detailed in this Road Map.

    It is important that as we implement our safety-conscious plans to start school in the fall that we remember the importance of "joy" within our schools. The Cohasset Public Schools are vibrant and warm places for staff to work and for students to learn, and as we move into the implementation of these plans, we will focus on keeping that warmth that makes Cohasset a special place. We will continue to view everything "Through the Eyes of the Student," and we will keep stressing that "This is Important, You Can Do It, and We Will Not Give Up On You" throughout any changes that come our way.

    Please see the link below to access the Cohasset Public Schools Fall School Re-Entry Road Map 2020 - 2021, which was approved by the School Committee on 8/26/2020. We will be following this plan, as we begin school.

    In addition:

    • In the coming days, building principals will be sending out specific Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) documents that pertain to their buildings, as well as additional information related to the start of school, including a detailed explanation of the first week of school, which begins on 9/22/2020. 
    • The Calendar for the 2020-2021 School Year with the changes that were voted on by School Committee is can be accessed by clicking on the link at the bottom of this email.
    • We analyzed the possibility of bringing in the children of teachers for four or five in-person days, but due to a lack of space for the many children that fell into this category, we are unable to offer this service.
    • Bus routes will be posted on the district webpage, and letters will be sent home to those families in grades K-6 outside of a two (2) mile radius who have signed up for a bus over the next few days.
    • We are preparing videos of the school spaces and our approaches to safety in each of the buildings, which should be ready by the end of next week.
    • In the coming days, I will be communicating with families regarding further opportunities to ask questions regarding our plan, if clarifications are needed.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Sincerely,

    Patrick E. Sullivan, Ed.D.

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    In Commissioner Riley’s most recent Desktop Newsletter, he states the following:

    Recognizing the critical need districts are facing to staff their schools this fall, and to provide support to teachers, I am making the following recommendations:

    1. Our guidance has previously indicated that districts that have adopted a hybrid or remote learning model should prioritize high-needs students for full-time, in-person learning. I recommend these districts also further prioritize children of teachers for full-time, in-person instruction when feasible. Since the models will vary by district, districts will decide locally what constitutes full-time instruction for these students.  (Desktop Newsletter, 8/21/20)

     

    In order to determine if allowing children of teachers full-time (or as near to full-time as possible), in-person learning is feasible, we are asking that parents / guardians who are teachers in public schools in Massachusetts please fill out this form if they wish for their children to be considered for full-time (or as near as we can create to full-time) in-person learning in Cohasset Public Schools. We ask that Cohasset teaching staff who have children attending Cohasset schools please also fill out this form if they wish their children to attend as near full-time in person learning in Cohasset Public Schools as we can provide for them. The form, which needs to be filled out by TUESDAY, AUGUST 25 at 3:00PM, can be found below:

    Possible Full-Time In-Person Learning For Teachers’ Children Form

  • On 8/19/2020 an updated Joint Memo from DPH and DESE Clarifying Key Health and Safety Requirements for Schools was distributed to District Leaders. Also distributed on 8/19/2020 was final EOHHS School Health Regulation Guidance. This guidance includes the requirement for all students from Pre-K through Grade 12 to get a flu immunization by December 31, 2020. On 8/20/2020, the DESE released guidance that allowed for a Mobile Testing Unit to be sent to school districts that were experiencing an outbreak of cases.

  • Greetings Cohasset Public Schools,

    Each Wednesday, the Department of Public Health (DPH) releases its Weekly COVID-19 Public Health Report that contains critical metrics for each municipality. Effective this week, there is also be a color-coded indication posted for each municipality calculated on a rolling two-week basis. Based on these updated weekly COVID-19 metrics, DESE’s guidance for how these data should inform each school and district’s learning model is as follows: 

    • Red will designate communities with more than 8 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents. REMOTE
    • Yellow will designate communities that have more than 4 and up to 8 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents. HYBRID
    • Green will designate communities that have 4 or fewer COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents: FULL TIME IN-PERSON or HYBRID (if not able to fit all students under social distancing requirements)
    • Unshaded will designate communities with small populations and fewer than 5 cases within the last 14 days: FULL TIME IN-PERSON or HYBRID (if not able to fit all students under social distancing requirements)

    Currently, Cohasset Public Schools is in the “Unshaded Category,” indicating that in-person schooling is appropriate when social-distancing guidelines are followed.

    I have included information regarding these metrics, as well as the Cohasset Community Health Update for August 14, 2020.

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    In an effort to provide information in response to reoccurring questions regarding the proposed TECCA Full Remote Only option, I am sending forward the following clarifications:

    Question:

    "If I do not choose TECCA and my child gets sick or has to quarantine, will he or she be provided with a remote only program at that time for the duration of the quarantine, as my child will clearly not be able to jump into TECCA at that point?" 

    Answer:

    Yes...we will find a TEMPORARY Remote option ONLY for students who are under quarantine and isolating or are under a doctor's care for COVID-19. Students who are in that situation will return to the hybrid or whatever model schools are following when their quarantine period ends. 

     

    Question:

    "Will students who are enrolled in the TECCA for Remote Learning Only have to be enrolled for the entire year?"

    Answer:

    "Students at the elementary level and middle school level will need to be enrolled in TECCA until the end of the first semester (January 25). It is clear now that students at the high school level will need to be enrolled in TECCA for the entire year due to our semester delivery model of classes at CHS."

    I hope these clarifications help those who had these questions. A reminder that we ask that if you are opting for fully remote learning for your child(ren) that you please should fill out the previously sent Full Remote Learning Option Form by Wednesday, August 12 at 3:00pm. If this form is not filled out before 3:00pm on August 12, we cannot guarantee your child(ren) a spot in the program.

     

    Sincerely,

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    Some families have expressed some confusion regarding the draft plan for the first six weeks of school that was a part of the School Committee approved draft of the Cohasset Public Schools Fall School Re-Entry Road Map 2020 - 2021 that was sent to families last Thursday evening. That section articulates our focus for the weeks, but it should not be construed that we will be waiting until after the first six weeks to begin academic instruction. The first week will focus on getting the students into the buildings safely and ensuring they learn protocols. However, social-emotional learning is always paried with academics, not separated from it. We will continue our rigorous academic offernings while at the same time ensuring those focus points articulated in the Road Map are met. My apologies for any confusion that the plan may have caused. Have a wonderful weekend.

     

    Sincerely,

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    Last evening, Commissioner Riley’s Fall School Re-Entry Group released their Full Remote Leaning Guidance and their Guidance for Courses Requiring Additional Safety Considerations. The courses mentioned in the Safety Consideration document include physical education, band, chorus / choir, theater, and visual arts.

    Both of these documents further clarify information that is currently in our Fall School Re-Entry Road Map Draft (sent to Cohasset Families yesterday). Information from this new guidance will be included as a part of our final Re-Entry Road Map. These documents will also be helpful for families to review before the family Zoom forums, about which we communicated yesterday.

    I have also included the Community Health Update for Friday, June 24, 2020. Have a great weekend.

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    On Thursday, July 9 and Friday, July 10, the subcommittees of the Cohasset Public Schools Re-Entry Team met to discuss re-entry planning in the following areas: Family Connection and Communication, Instruction at Osgood, Instruction at Deer Hill, Instruction at Cohasset Middle School, Instruction at Cohasset High School, Facilities, Social-Emotional Support, Student Services, and Technology. These successful meetings were filled with important discussions, sharing of ideas, and passionate considerations for our students, families, and faculty / staff as we plan for the possibilities of returning in an in-person learning, hybrid, or remote learning model. Thank you to the many stakeholders (students, faculty / staff, parents / guardians, School Committee Members, Town Employees, and Town Leaders who participated in these meetings. It was a great showing of how paramount Cohasset holds the success of its youth and schools. These meeting were one important step along the planning cycle. The Cohasset Public Schools Fall School Re-Entry Planning Timeline can be found here.

    As part of our approach to re-entry, the social-emotional wellness of all our students will be paramount. We are already taking steps to prepare and to implement a safe and supportive return. On Thursday, July 9, the Collaborative of Academic and Social-Emotional Learning (CASEL) issued its re-entry guidance for schools. This document reflects the approach we are planning for social-emotional support. The CASEL Re-Entry Road Map can be found here.

    Also, on July 9, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) produced its Comprehensive Special Education Guidance document and shared it with superintendents and district leaders. This guidance can be found here. This guidance will be followed closely by all faculty and staff.

    Yesterday, Commissioner Riley’s Fall Re-Entry Group issued a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding the Initial Fall Guidance. The FAQ Document can be found here, and the Initial Fall Guidance, which was sent out to families on June 25, can be found here. Commissioner Riley also issued a memo to superintendents and district leaders that emphasized the importance of leaders not communicating official Re-Entry Plans until August because of information that is forthcoming regarding financial support, and because of the need to track COVID-19 rates within the community before making final decisions. This memo to school leaders can be found here.

    Finally, the Cohasset Community Health Update for 7/10/2020 can be found here. Please read this document, as it emphasizes the importance of all of us remaining vigilant regarding the social distancing practices required to keep COVID-19 low in our community. I will keep staff and families updated as new information comes my way and as we continue through our planning process. Have a nice weekend.

  • Good Morning Cohasset Families,

    Last evening, Commissioner Riley’s Planning Group released its initial fall school re-opening guidance (please click on this link to view the guidance). As Commissioner Riley declares in his memo, “the initial guidance for school reopening this fall prioritizes getting our students back to school in person—safely, following a comprehensive set of health and safety requirements. At the same time, DESE is requiring each district and school to also plan for remote learning and a hybrid school model, a combination of in-person and remote learning, should conditions change this fall or winter.”

    We have already announced the formation of a comprehensive district planning team (please click on this link to access the Fall School Re-Entry Planning Team) and of a timeline for the development of our fall school re-entry road map (please click on this link to access the Fall-Rentry Road Map Development Timeline). Planning will take place at both the district and school level, and student, faculty / staff, and family voice will be paramount as we plan.

    Cohasset Families, please take a few minutes to fill out the following survey, which will be used to help the planning teams (PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK TO ACCESS THE INITIAL GUIDANCE FAMILY SURVEY).

    A similar survey will be issued to faculty and staff in the coming days. We also plan to send out an additional survey to stakeholders after the planning team has their work in draft phase.

    I have also attached a brief video where I explain our approach to planning:

    https://youtu.be/hcePl24ZNm8

     

    We are Cohasset Strong, and we will get through this together! Have a great day.

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    The first attached document presents the timeline we will use to create a Road Map for Fall School Re-Entry. We are committed to using a thorough process that is inclusive of stakeholder voice at every level. However, we do recognize the need to get information out as quickly as possible. Because of this need, I will be sharing information from the guidance that is set to come from The Commissioner's Re-Entry Group. The Commissioner has asked that superintendents not go deeply into planning before the guidance from his group is issued. It is expected that the Commissioner will send his guidance, which will serve as a foundation for our work with our own Re-Entry Team, to superintendents and district leaders within the next two weeks. Our timeline provides opportunity for staff and family input in forums before the final Road Map is published. (Please click on link below to access the document): 

    Cohasset Public Schools Timeline for Fall School Re-Entry Road Map Development

    The second attached document presents the Cohasset Public Schools Fall School Re-Entry Planning Team 2020 – 2021. Thank you to the students, parents / guardians, faculty, staff, community members, town employees, and school leaders who are on the Re-entry Subcommittees. The broad scope of this team will provide a great collective voice for the school community as we apply the guidance to make the fall re-entry work for our faculty and staff, families, and students. (Please click on the link below to access the document):

    It is important that as we create our safety conscious plans to start school in the fall that we remember the importance of "joy" within our schools. The Cohasset Public Schools are vibrant and warm places for staff to work and for students to learn, and we will focus within our planning on keeping that warmth that makes Cohasset a special place. We will continue to view everything "Through the Eyes of the Student," and we will keep stressing that "This is Important, You Can Do It, and We Will Not Give Up On You" throughout any changes that come our way.

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    In an effort to support families and students dealing with the ongoing social crisis regarding the death of George Floyd, we are sharing some additional resources (please see below):

    Resources recommended by METCO:

    TIME for Kids Age-Appropriate Resources

    Social and Cultural Literacy Resource for Classrooms

    In addition, we are proud of the recent peaceful and positive activism (holding signs of solidarity for our students of color on the town common) on the part of our students, and we support their collective voice. We are also continuing our focus on cultural competency professional development with all our staff. In addition to examining the diversity of our texts this past school year and immersing our students in more culturally proficient and culturally diverse readings at the elementary level, we had a comprehensive professional development planned for staff on March 20 regarding cultural proficiency and race that was unfortunately postponed due to the COVID -19 outbreak. This professional development, which comes to us through the outstanding efforts of Aleisa Gittens-Carle, our METCO Director, and Assistant Superintendent Dr. Leslie Scollins, and which is funded by the Cohasset Education Foundation (CEF), is now on our Professional Development Calendar for the 2020 – 2021 school year. We are appreciative to the CEF for this opportunity. I have linked our plans for this event to this communication (see below).

    Cultural Competency and Race Professional Development

    Have a nice afternoon.

  • Greetings Cohasset Families,

    The events resulting in the death of George Floyd in Minnesota last week have caused sorrow, outrage, and frustration. In a time when the need for compassion and empathy is paramount, we will continue to promote diversity and cultural competency, to teach the importance of open discourse, and to inspire our students to end hate through kindness and compassion. We stand beside and support our students and families of color, in this case particularly students and families in the Black and African American communities, and we are committed to do our part to end systemic racism.

    This tragedy and others like it, paired with the ongoing pandemic, have produced a difficult landscape for our students. We want to provide the highest level of social and emotional support possible for our students during this difficult time, so please reach out to your child’s principal or our METCO Director, if there is a need for support, and they will direct you to the appropriate resources. We have also included some resources to support students and families in talking about recent events and in coping with the trauma that can arise from public tragedies.
