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.
