Wednesday Message from the Superintendent

Good Afternoon Beverly Parents, Families and Staff,

Today, Governor Baker announced that he is extending the school closure until at least May 4th

I want to assure you that we are well stationed to move ahead but will need to hear what guidance and directives the Commissioner has for us on Friday regarding the parameters of this phase of distance learning. Commissioner Riley will issue a public message to parents tomorrow that may provide a glimpse into the direction he envisions. We will forward that communication to you via Connect Ed as well as post it on our Beverly Keeps Learning website

I believe our Beverly Keeps Learning platform, as well as our commitment to rethink what it means to provide remote, at-home learning, will prove to be extremely helpful to our families as move forward. The Governor and the Commissioner both spoke about the importance of project based learning, further evidence that Beverly's strategic goals align well with their vision. I continue to be proud of the tremendous efforts of our students, staff and administrators during the closure, and I know that we will continue to provide your child with the best opportunities for learning possible during this difficult situation. 

Please take care to follow the recommended advisories - stay healthy and safe!

Thank you,

Sue Charochak, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
