Mayor Curtatone's Statement on School Remaining Closed Through End of Academic YearTuesday, April 21, 2020
"We know this isn't easy for anyone, but it is what we must do to protect the health of the entire society around us." I fully support Governor Baker's decision to keep Massachusetts schools closed for the remainder of the school year. It is the only sensible decision as we find ourselves in the surge phase of this pandemic. We simply cannot secure public health at this time by sending thousands of students, teachers, and staff back to school in our community.
