WRENTHAM — Superintendent Paul Zinni reports that the King Philip Regional School District will be returning to its hybrid learning model starting Monday, Feb. 1, following multiple days of full remote learning this week.
Schools operated under a remote learning model for four days this week while district leaders reviewed multiple positive confirmed cases of COVID-19 within the district.
“I would like to commend the tireless work of our school health officials, nurses with the Boards of Health from Wrentham, Plainville and Norfolk, and our school administrators this week,” Superintendent Zinni said. “The decision to go fully remote was not an easy one, but we believe it was in the best interest of our school community and it allowed us to perform the necessary contact tracing, thoroughly deep-clean our buildings and get ready to return to the hybrid model as quickly and as safely as possible.”
Athletics within the district will resume on Saturday, Jan. 30.
As schools return to hybrid learning next week, the King Philip Regional School District continues to stress the importance of following state and CDC guidelines pertaining to social distancing, mask wearing and proper hygiene, as well as limiting gatherings between people not of the same household. Parents and guardians are reminded to monitor their children for symptoms of COVID-19 and to keep people home from school and away from others if they are symptomatic or have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for the virus.
