Change in Friday Afternoon Transportation 10/15/21: The bus company has just notified us that Bus M will not be running this afternoon. Instead, Bus G will be taking on the students from the Bus M route. This will happen across the entire route for Memorial Elementary, Toy Town Elementary, Murdock Middle and Murdock High. We understand that this will affect drop off times for the students on Buses G and M. The bus company has not given us an estimated time of delay. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work to improve communication regarding bus transportation. Please contact your school building if you would prefer to pick your child up today rather than having them take the bus.

Dear Winchendon Families, As a clarification to my earlier post, both unvaccinated and vaccinated students may be sent home until they receive a negative PCR test or a differential diagnosis from their physician based on their combination of symptoms. For details, please see the link to the attached flow chart from the Department of Education. https://www.doe.mass.edu/covid19/on-desktop/flowcharts.pdf

This is a reminder that according to recent guidance, schools are required to send home unvaccinated students who have multiple COVID-like symptoms (including those that may resemble seasonal allergies) until they receive a negative PCR test or differential diagnosis from their physician. Additionally, unvaccinated, symptomatic students who do have seasonal allergies must obtain a note from a physician stating that their symptoms are due to allergies and not COVID related. Finally, the test and stay protocol is for asymptomatic school and community close contacts only and not for those who have COVID-like symptoms. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we endeavor to keep our students and staff safe and healthy.
