The Worcester Public Schools announce that all schools and programs, including the Parent Information Center, and HEAD START will be closed until at least Friday May 1, 2020. The Durkin Administration Building will be open to employees and closed to the public but available by telephone. The district is taking proactive steps to protect our students and staff during this current pandemic to prevent community spread of the virus. The district will closely monitor the current situation and determine if the planned opening date needs to be extended.
The district will be updating students and families on the dates and times of access to schools to retrieve personal items.
We are working with city and community partners to develop plans to provide meals and other essential services to students during this shutdown period.
All staff should check their employee email that will be sent by 5pm on Sunday for details about work assignments, accessing personal items from the school, payroll, and other information.
I will continue to update you on this evolving national emergency as it pertains to the Worcester Public Schools.
