Returning to School Safely, Together

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is working with your children's school district to help everyone return to learning this fall.

Because of the pandemic, we are all learning new ways of doing things. And we remain committed to the well-being and growth of every student.


We continue to release detailed reopening information on a rolling basis. All of our guidance, on subjects ranging from art classes to transportation, is posted online. The latest updates related to COVID-19 and K-12 education in Massachusetts are posted on our COVID-19 page. You can also visit our family webpage to access a range of topics for parents and guardians.

Thank you for doing your part to keep our schools and communities safe.
