Announcement for Grades 5 & 6

Dear Edgartown School Community,

I am pleased to inform you that the Edgartown School will bring 5th and 6th grade students back into the building for 4 days a week of in-person learning beginning Tuesday, December 9. In-person learning will occur on Tuesday-Friday and remote learning will be on Monday only. This is the resumption of the Middle School re-entry plan that was presented and approved by the School Committee on November 4 of this year.

It is our hope that we will be able to welcome grades 7 and 8 back into the building beginning sometime in January. The current schedule for 7th and 8th grade students will remain the same; Monday-Thursday remote learning and Friday in-person.

Families of 5th and 6th grade students are reminded that students must follow the COVID-19 protocols in order to attend in-person learning. Drop off and pick-up routines will stay the same: Use the Front Entrance but, students are not to exit their vehicles until 8:10. Students who are on the sidewalk must wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

Dr. Shelley Einbinder

Letter From the Principal 11.9.20

Dear Edgartown School Community,

Earlier this evening, I forwarded a letter to you from the Superintendent of Schools, confirming a positive COVID-19 test at the Edgartown School. I am following up, as I acknowledge that this news is unsettling. As stated in the letter, the Edgartown Board of Health would contact you should your child be considered a close contact. Any close contacts have now been notified.

Throughout our re-opening, our school has been diligent about following health and safety guidelines. These strategies include mask wearing, appropriate distancing, hand washing, and  adhering to cleaning and disinfection of our classrooms and entire building. 

The Island's Boards of Health continue to partner with our schools to support our efforts to maintain safe conditions in our buildings. Our staff continues to meet weekly to discuss and reinforce the importance of safe practices.  Collectively, our community has important responsibilities.  Some of the things we can do to help reduce transmission include:

  • Wear a mask whenever in public, even with close friends.
  • Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer, as needed.
  • Maintain 6 feet of physical distancing with people who are outside of your household.
  • Keep gatherings as small as possible, outside and include mask-wearing.

Please see the following link to Governor Baker's Revised Order Further Regulating Gatherings in the Commonwealth.

Thank you, and please be safe - for yourselves and others.

Best regards,

Shelley Einbinder, Ed.D.
