School Status Update 10.30.20

Dear Pittsfield Families, 

I am writing to provide you an update on the Pittsfield School District operations. This morning, October 30th, we completed the contact tracing for a student who has tested positive and the contact trace was sent to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). They have estimated that they will contact people who meet their criteria of close contact on Sunday. 

Due to the need for staff members who are considered close contact to quarantine, PES will operate remotely through November 10th. PMHS will resume its hybrid schedule starting November 2. Due to November 11 being an off day in observance of Veterans Day, in-person classes at PES will resume on November 12 for A day students. PMHS students may come in for their hybrid learning days, or they may work remotely during the PES remote period if they need to support with childcare at home. If they choose to work remotely we ask that you contact the PMHS main office. CRTC students will report to CRTC as scheduled. 

During this period of PES remote learning, if you would like to switch to remote meals (pickups on Tuesday and Friday) please email mhill@pittsfieldnhschools.org. We are working to reschedule the Student Flu Clinic for after November 12th. 

In the meantime, I would like to remind you that the best practices right now are to continue social distancing, wearing a mask and proper handwashing procedures. 

Dr. John Graziano

Interim Superintendent of Schools
