The City of Lowell was coded “red” or “high risk” for a third consecutive week in the state’s weekly COVID-19 public health report, so the Lowell Public Schools will switch to a remote learning model beginning Monday, October 19.
Those students currently attending school in-person will continue to attend in-person for the remainder of this week. Remote learning will start for all students on Monday, October 19. Each school will be reaching out to students and families to support the transition to remote learning.
As mentioned in last night’s message, we reviewed options for students in smaller, substantially separate special education programs to continue to attend school in-person. The following groups of students will still be able to attend school in-person: students in our day schools; students in CSA, LEAP, Adjustment, and language-based special education programs; hearing impaired students; and students with visual impairments.
All other students will take part in remote learning.
