April 1, 2021 - UPDATE

  • Dear BPS Community,

    Thank you for your patience as we reviewed the latest public health data for the community and our schools. Barnstable Public Schools will return to in-person learning on Monday, April 5. As a reminder, students in grades K-3 (with the exception of Cohort D) should plan to attend in-person on Wednesday, April 7.

    We wish all of our families a safe and healthy weekend.


    Prezada Comunidade BPS,

    Obrigada por sua paciência enquanto analisávamos os dados de saúde pública mais recentes para a comunidade e nossas escolas. As Escolas Públicas de Barnstable retornarão ao aprendizado presencial na segunda-feira, 5 de abril.

    Como um lembrete, os alunos nas séries K-3 (com exceção do grupo estudantil D) devem planejar participar em pessoa na quarta-feira, 7 de abril.

    Desejamos a todas as nossas famílias um fim de semana seguro e saudável.

    Monday, April 5, there is important information to share about our next steps:

    • All K-3 schools will provide 5 days of in-person learning per week, beginning April 5 (this means students attend Wednesday, April 7).
    • I have requested a waiver for BUE to begin implementation of combining Cohorts A, B, and C for 5 days of in-person learning on April 26. The rationale for the waiver is the required reduction to 3 feet of physical distancing at this time. Principal Mike Wojkowski will communicate the Commissioner’s decision with the BUE community as soon as we receive it. If the waiver is approved, BUE will remain in its current hybrid model until April 26.
    • BIS will combine Cohorts A, B, and C for 5 days of in-person learning beginning April 26.
    • BHS will combine Cohorts A, B, and C for 5 days of in-person learning beginning May 3.

    Please be in touch with your building principal about any questions related to the information above. 

    Thank you for your patience and continued support of Barnstable Public Schools.
