2020 Fall School Plan Braintree

Download school plan here.

Dear Parent, Families and Guardians:

We have been working diligently on the return to full in person instruction following the Fall 2020 Guidance from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). The Cardinal Cushing leadership team has been reviewing this guidance carefully in order to put forth our best effort in determining the three plans we have submitted to DESE. Like all things related to this pandemic and unprecedented time, the guidance and requirements are complicated and we sometimes have to wait for DESE clarifications as it is a fluid situation. We are working on creating more spaces for full instruction to happen, given that our cohorts of students must continue to remain separate. We are also increasing our staffing to help support and maintain our ratios while in these cohorts. We are also upgrading our technology and live streaming capabilities.

With this in mind, Cardinal Cushing Braintree Saint Coletta Day School will begin with a full in person model on September 9th. School will be from 8:30 am to 3:15 pm. Please consult the school calendar for regularly scheduled noon dismissals.

Cardinal Cushing staff members wish more than anything to welcome all students back to their learning environments in the school setting. The health and safety of our students, parents/guardians, and school personnel remain our top priorities. Your school district has received this information. We want to thank everyone for your dedication, patience, and commitment to our students, staff, and school.
