Virtual Classroom Learning
At Mission Grammar, safety remains our top priority.
All decisions we have made, and will continue to make, are grounded in the most up-to-date guidelines and we are doing our part to stay informed, and to stay cautious and safe.
We are building a strong plan for the Fall Re-Opening, but also want to be transparent that if any national or state safety guidelines change, or if infection rates in Boston rise, our plan will change in order to continue to ensure that we are doing what is safest for our community.
We want to ensure that all members of our community are informed of and have a voice in the safety plan we are putting in place. As the plans take form, please always feel welcome to ask questions and to provide insight and input; we believe in the value of our team and know that we are better together. Thank you for continuing to choose Mission Grammar, we appreciate you so much.
Both of our children returned to OLPH Mission Grammar School last week and we have been highly impressed with the level of thought and care that has been put into the re-opening, as well as the constant communication around new procedures and protocols.
Need a device? No problem!
We will coordinate a pick up of a chromebook, as soon as possible, free of charge.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is Mission Grammar going to be open and in-person in the Fall?
A: Given the size of our school and the careful planning we have done, we feel confident we will be able to open for in person learning in September, assuming infection rates hold at their current state or decrease.
Q: What if I am not ready to have my child be in-person come September?
A: We understand and respect that every family may not be ready for an in-person start. We are going to be offering Zoom lessons during live instruction in the classroom so that scholars at home may tune in and be part of the classroom. This hybrid option will be offered in all grades.
Q: Will my child have to wear a mask?
A: In accordance with DESE guidance, scholars in grades 2 and above will be wearing masks. Scholars below grade 2 will not be required, but will be encouraged to. Scholars 2 years old or younger will not be wearing masks, nor will any scholar while napping (or eating).
Q: Will there still be breakfast and lunch served?
A: Yes, we will be able to provide breakfast and lunch but they will be served in the classrooms; we will not be utilizing the Parish Center as the cafeteria this year.
Q: Is the school day the same time and will there be Before School care and/or Extended Day available?
A: At present, we are prioritizing building a safe plan for our typical school day (7:30am-3:30pm); we want to ensure this plan is fully formed and effectively carried out before we plan for adaptations for an extended school day.
Q: I have ideas and/or questions about the plan, who can I talk to?
A: Please always feel welcome to reach out to any member of the Mission Grammar team.
Ms. Looney is available to answer any questions you may have; she can be reached via email.
