  • Timing Update for All Students - Return to In-Person Learning

    Students’ return to schools will follow this phased approach so we do not overwhelm our schools. Further, a phased approach, as planned, will allow for continued time to adjust and adapt our protocols in each building, so we can keep students and faculty/staff as safe as possible as they return in-person. As we know, these dates remain accurate pending the trajectory of the virus. Fully remote instruction will continue every day for all students who are not yet in schools. Letters to Cohort B and ECEC students have been mailed home with details. Cohorts C&D will have letters mailed next week. Click above link to learn more on timing.

    Following guidance and approval from the Dedham Board of Health and the Dedham School Committee, Dedham Public Schools confirmed that students would soon begin returning in-person to classrooms. The schools will follow the previously outlined phased return approach with a two-week delay, making some adjustments for its youngest students in Preschool and Kindergarten. Some Dedham preschool students are now tentatively scheduled to return in-person to school beginning as early as October 1, 2020. Kindergarten and designated “high needs” students would begin returning to classrooms on Monday, October 5, 2020 assigned in Hybrid or for four days per week schedules. All other Dedham students will begin phasing into a Hybrid in-person/remote classroom model in the weeks thereafter.
