Return to School Timeline

Dear Malden Public Schools Families,

I hope this communication finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.  I am writing today to share some important news.  The following return to school timeline was proposed by the School Committee and agreed upon by the Joint Labor Management Committee.  This is an important step in our safe return to school.

For now, it is essential that you have the following dates so that you can plan accordingly. Before January 15, we will send out a more detailed communication, including scheduling and logistics, to help provide you with all the information you need to decide what is best for your student and family.

Dates Actions
January 4 -January 15 Remote instruction weeks for all high needs students and staff who are currently engaged in in-person learning.
January 19 High needs staff and students return to in-person learning
January 25 PreK through Grade 2 staff, and staff who service PreK through Grade 2 students return to buildings in-person to prepare for hybrid in-person learning.
February 1 Optional (families choose) hybrid in-person learning begins for students in PreK through grade 2

We are grateful for your patience, cooperation, and partnership.  We hope that you have a healthy, restful holiday season and break, and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

John Oteri
