(Lindsey v./Thom H.) APPROVED 19-0Special Olympics MA-MIAA Unifies sports teamsWith regards to our school partnerships, the school superintendents and the school districts will take the lead. Our schools programs are part of the inclusive school community. If and when school districts make the decision to open and resume interscholastic sports and other school initiatives, our schools programs will follow suit.These measures will no doubt cause incredible disappointment for our athletes, coaches, and volunteers, however, in light of the current circumstances, we must continue to make everyone’s health and safety our number one priority.From Superintendent David Fleishman-March 15-10 PM
As has been recommended by Newton Health and Human Services, and reiterated in Governor Baker’s remarks, social distancing is critical to slowing the spread of the virus in Massachusetts. We are encouraging “social distancing” (staying out of large groups and maintaining 6 feet of separation at smaller gatherings) to lower the risk of transmission of illness to others. We urge families to restrict their childrens' play dates and in-person social interactions and to consider other ways that they can have appropriate and healthy connections with their peers.
