Re: Superintendent’s Weekly Update
Date: August 19, 2021

FROM THE DESK OF THE SUPERINTENDENT

We are just two weeks from the beginning of the new school year and we are looking forward to a wonderful start to school for our MPS students, staff, and families. Our custodial staff has spent much of the summer readying our buildings for September and our Leadership Team has been preparing all summer for a successful return to school. Our many summer programs (ESY, Camp Cunningham, Universal Summer, Calculus Project, Summertime Stories, MHS Bridge, and MSE) have concluded or are wrapping up this week. It has been wonderful to have students and staff in our buildings all summer!

Last week I sent an update about the MPS mask policy for the start of the school year and you can read that letter here. To summarize, as we have no way to determine who is vaccinated in our community and a significant portion of MPS students are not yet eligible for the vaccine, MPS will require all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to our schools to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Universal indoor masking, along with several other mitigation measures (adherence to symptom screening protocols, physical distancing when possible, hand hygiene, enhanced cleaning procedures, air purifiers, and ventilation upgrades) will help us to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our schools, limit quarantines and keep our students learning in-person five days a week. The Milton Public Schools Face Covering Policy remains in place. The District will review the policy bi-monthly (every other month) at School Committee meetings with updates as to the current health data.

The district has submitted an application for the testing initiative through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). We aren’t sure when we will hear if we have been approved for this program but we remain optimistic that we will be able to offer testing as part of our mitigation efforts this fall. Principals are re-assessing plans for breakfast, lunch, recess, mask breaks, chorus/band, and athletics and will share them with their school communities as they are finalized. As we know, September can be warm in our schools, and in addition to our hands free water fillers throughout the buildings, we will have extra water stations on hot days. All students are reminded to bring their personal refillable water bottle every day.

I also want to call your attention to the recently released Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (M.A.S.S.) Position Statement on K-12 Curriculum and Critical Race Theory linked here. As I stated at the School Committee meeting on July 21, 2021 the Milton Public Schools have not implemented Critical Race Theory into our curriculum. Our goal is to be culturally responsive as we highlight the rich diversity in our country and history in all of our teachings.  

As we look to the upcoming school year we will continue to focus on teaching and learning, educational equity, social emotional learning, and student and family engagement. I often hear that we should return to our “Pre-Covid-19 normal” but I disagree! We can and should strive to do better and as your Superintendent, in partnership with teachers, staff, students and families, I promise to continue to move the district forward as we pursue excellence for all in the Milton Public Schools. 

Please read on below for important upcoming dates, technology updates, new staff introductions, athletics details and more. You can also visit our Back to School page for links and information. I hope you enjoy these last weeks of summer. We look forward to welcoming our new employees on August 23, our teachers and staff on August 30, our students in grades 1-12 on September 1 and our Kindergarten and Preschool students on September 7.

Covid Vaccination Clinic: The Milton Public Schools is once again partnering with Manet Community Health Center to provide a Vaccination Clinic on Saturday, August 28th from 9 am until 12 pm. The clinic will be held at Milton High School, 25 Gile Road in the Copeland Field House (back of the school). This clinic will be open to all. Pre-registration is not available; this is a walk-in registration clinic only and Manet will offer the Pfizer, Moderna and J&J vaccines. Please bring your ID and insurance card if possible – NOT REQUIRED.

This vaccination clinic is  open to all. Those who get vaccinated on Saturday, August 28th will be scheduled for their second shot on Saturday, September 18th (same time frame and same location) unless they are administered the J&J vaccine.

TONIGHT! All are invited to come and see Milton High School’s production of Urinetown onscreen — with an audience! Set in a world where every toilet is a pay toilet, Urinetown is a dark, funny musical that satirizes the legal system, capitalism, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, and musical theatre itself. This production was filmed on the Milton High School stage back in June. 

  • When: Thursday, August 19th at 6:30 p.m.
  • Where: Pierce Middle School auditorium
  • Why: To support the MHS Theatre Dept. and watch our talented students!
  • Tickets are $5, available at the door only (credit cards accepted).
  • Masks required for all.

We hope you will come celebrate the talents of the cast and crew and meet the leaders of the theatre program; rising ninth graders interested in exploring theatre at the high school are encouraged to attend. All proceeds will benefit the Milton High School theatre program.
Stay tuned until the end of the show to hear a big announcement regarding the Fall Musical.
