Last Friday, the Commissioner of Education released guidance that if school districts decided to work though April vacation that those days would count as school days. Based on the fact that many families are at home and looking for the continuity of continuing with school, the School Committee voted last night to have teachers and students work through the April vacation.
Monday, April 20th is a state holiday (Patriots Day) and will not be a school day. Tuesday, April 21st through Friday, April 24th will be school days. The staff will post work for that week on Tuesday morning April 21st. As a result of working through April vacation week, the last day of school, will be Friday, June 19th.
If this decision causes a hardship for your family please contact your building principal.

Distribution of Chromebooks Letter
At this time, the Carver Public Schools are still scheduled to be closed through Monday, April 6th with all students returning to school on Tuesday, April 7th.
In the event the Governor decides to extend the closure, we are making plans to develop a more formalized online learning program. As part of that planning, we are attempting to determine what students do not have access to the internet or a device/computer to do work at home. If your student does not have access to either the internet or a device/computer at home, please complete the survey linked below. If you know someone who does not have access please have them contact us, or you can contact us at (508) 866-6160.
Please click the link below for the Home Technology Access Survey.

We will keep you informed of any additional changes as the evolving public health situation continues and will provide you with a status update no later than Friday, March 20, 2020.
