Note: We may have many more students and staff in quarantine each day while they await results of testing for COVID-like symptoms (most have been negative) or because of travel to non-exempted states. We are only reporting here those that have been quarantined by the CDC because of a confirmed or probable case, or close contact with a confirmed or probable case.
Increasing in-person learning
On February 25, the Yarmouth School Committee formed a Task Force comprised of staff, parents, medical professionals, and a high school student. The group proposed a timeline and strategies for a return to full-time, in-person learning for Yarmouth's students.
On April 1, The School Committee approved adoption of The Green Plan to increase in-person learning beginning May 3. An overview The Green Plan 4.1.21 is provided here.
A summary of the district wide survey results is provided in this update from the April 1 School Committee meeting.
