Update

Dear Worcester Public Schools Community,

High school sports practices and games are allowed to be held today, Friday, September 8, as long as the weather conditions fall within MIAA heat guidelines.

Please note that any games or practices that were previously postponed continue to be postponed.

Games or practices that were scheduled for today and were not postponed will be held.

Please view the updated athletics schedule on our website.

Please check with your student’s coaches to confirm their game or practice schedule.


Message from September 6

Dear Worcester Public Schools Community,

In an abundance of caution and in an effort to keep our children and staff safe due to the extended forecast of hot temperatures, all Worcester Public Schools will dismiss students three (3) hours early on Thursday, September 7, and Friday, September 8. Breakfast and lunch will be served. There will be no half-day preschool on Thursday or Friday.

Additionally, Worcester Public Schools has made the following adjustments to the high school athletic schedules:

  • All games will be canceled for today, Wednesday, September 6, and tomorrow, Thursday, September 7. We are monitoring the conditions before making a decision about Friday, September 8.

 

  • We are allowing two options for indoor and outdoor practices for today and tomorrow.  Teams may practice after 6 PM or at 6 AM if the temperature is in adherence to MIAA heat guidelines. We are monitoring the conditions before making a decision about Friday. Please confirm with your child’s coach what time practice will take place.

 

  • Please know that no athlete will be penalized for not participating in a practice this evening or tomorrow morning.

Please check the district website or call your child’s school for the exact release time for your child/ren’s school. Again, all schools will dismiss three (3) hours earlier than their normal dismissal time on Thursday, September 7 and Friday, September 8.

Sincerely,

Rachel H. Monárrez, Ph.D.
Superintendent
Worcester Public Schools
