At this time, the state guidance we have been provided thus far is that the suspension of school means that these are non-school days. While these will not count as school days, it is our hope that families and caregivers will encourage and support their students to continue to engage in valuable enrichment activities. To assist families in this capacity, we have worked with our teachers to create a website that will guide you to resources your students can access directly and activity ideas that you can share with your students.
We encourage students to keep practicing the skills they have been working on in their courses of study.
Under the “School” tab at the top of this page, you will find links to specific schools and grade levels where you can find additional advice, links, and other resources. These resources were assembled by our SPS teachers to support learning during the hiatus.
The “Family Project” tab links to some general resources and ideas of activities to involve the entire family. It has been compiled and shared by Worcester Public Schools.
The “Digital Resources” tab contains links to some sites prepared by Google with activities to engage students.
Please check this page periodically for any updates regarding the resources or expectations for learning during the closure.
Students with disabilities and English learners who normally receive specialized instruction should expect additional communications directly from their Special Education or English as a Second Language Teachers.
Swampscott Public Schools’ first priority is the health and safety of our students and staff. We will use this page to continue to update families about our communications home to families and our trusted resources. At this point, there is no significant risk to the SPS community relative to COVID-19. Any district plans or responses will be developed in accordance with the latest guidance from the Swampscott Board of Health, the MA Department of Public Health, and the Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC).
You can access up to date information about COVID-19 on the website MA DPH COVID-199. Moving forward we will continue to communicate with you regularly as new information comes available via our website and emails to families.
Please email SPSwebmaster@swampscott.k12.ma.us to report inaccessible content or if you have questions or concerns about accessing information on this website.
Complaint procedures and filing formal grievances under Section 504 can be found on our website accessibility page.
