Posted on 02/26/2021
If you have not completed that survey, please do so here: https://forms.gle/acfpXDgQwZbZd9yGA. Completing this survey will give us a general understanding of where things stand for families.
School councils and school reopening committees will be asked to begin to advise us as we wait for a State Board of Education vote and subsequent regulatory guidance on the topic of return to school.  
Pooled Testing
Pooled testing at all schools begins on Monday, March 1. 
We appreciate your patience with us as the implementation begins. We have been granted 15 (free) staffers from a health staffing company, Adecco, to serve as testers and overseers of the program in addition to our 20+ volunteers from the Natick Community. See below for pictures of what our pooled testing setup will look like, as modeled at Kennedy.
It's not too late to sign up!
Contact us through the 'Speak Up' portal if you cannot find email sent on 2/11/21 about this program — it includes organization links and account creation information.
