School Status Update 11.8.20

Dear Families,

We have recently learned of a presumed positive COVID-19 case involving a student enrolled in the Pittsfield School District. Due to the need for seventh and eighth grade staff members to quarantine, all students in grades 7-8 will be operating remotely through Thursday, November 12. Pittsfield Middle High School will remain open for hybrid learners in sixth grade and grades 9-12.

The school district has reached out to families of students and staff members that were in contact with the student and have been advised to quarantine while we gather additional information. Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, such as a fever, chills, respiratory illness, aches or change in taste and smell, please stay home and away from others and get a COVID-19 PCR test.

The school district will follow up with a status update by Friday, November 13, at 3:00 p.m.

School Tuition Committee

Last March the voters of Pittsfield approved a warrant article advising the Pittsfield School Board to investigate viable options for tuitioning Pittsfield High School students (grades 9-12) to a school out of town, ending the high school program in Pittsfield.

The school district has formed a committee to investigate and pursue viable options for tuitioning all students in grades 9-12 to other high school(s). Committee members include Heidi Asdot, Susan Bradley, James Cobern, Ross Morse, Mary Paradise, Robert Schiferle, Leslie Vogt, and John Graziano.

The committee has also formed several sub-committees. Those sub-committees include budget and facilities, district contracts, Pittsfield course offerings, and offerings provided by receiving schools.

The committee will meet again on November 12 via Zoom at 4:30 p.m. https://zoom.us/j/91391137151?pwd=Nm82SFNWbFUwU3lZeFpBdG1XZDdVQT0
