  • Updated COVID Travel/Gathering Guidelines

    In order to keep providing students with the opportunity to attend school in-person, it is critical that everyone continue to follow safe practices when it comes to COVID-19. These regulations were established in agreement with the Dedham Board of Health. They are now in effect for all faculty, staff and students of Dedham Public Schools for at least the next five weeks, including the February vacation break (February 13-21). Our schools are carefully reviewing every student’s health and safety attestation form. If a student has not completed this attestation, that student will be excluded from classrooms until we confirm compliance. We appreciate your careful review of this guidance. Thank you for your continued cooperation, transparency, honesty and communication.
