Return to School Plan

Return to School Plan

Most of HPS started the SY 20-21 School Year Remotely.  Visit our Return to School webpage for updated information.

In order to ensure that the students who need the most get the most, we have selected K-12 students for whom in-person instruction is most essential, and their families will have the option to choose in-person or fully remote learning.  This group of students includes:

  • Career and Vocational Technical Education (Dean Campus) students,
  • students with disabilities in substantially separate classrooms, and
  • English Learners defined as Newcomers. 


Read our Return to School Plan below or in printable PDF Format (English | En español) to learn more. 

Although the plan below identifies remote, hybrid, and in-person models of learning, we will not be implementing hybrid at this time.  (The contents of the plan may change based on health metrics and future guidance from the local Board of Health, State of Massachusetts, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)).  Throughout the year, we will consider adding students for whom remote learning is less conducive.
