Health Guidance and Medical Advisory Group

Medical Advisory Group

  • The Superintendent convened the Ad Hoc Medical Advisory Group to advise and make recommendations on issues of  health and safety as NPS actively plans for a full return to in person learning this fall. The Superintendent brings relevant questions to the Advisory Group, which meets to discuss these questions, come to consensus, and create a set of recommendations for the Superintendent.  These recommendations, as well as meeting minutes, are shared with the NPS planning teams, the School Committee, NPS staff, parents/guardians, and the community at large.
