Return to Learn Survey
Dear Pembroke Families,
In November Governor Charles Baker urged school districts to increase in-person learning. As a result of Governor Baker's press conferences, the School Committee is gathering data from the Pembroke community to help inform our decisions as we move forward.
This survey is to gather data only. The survey is not a vote or referendum on whether Pembroke should increase in-person learning time or change the current hybrid model.
There are logistical issues, safety guidelines, and other considerations that must be weighed before implementing any future changes.
If Pembroke Schools were to increase the number of students participating in in-person learning each day, it likely means that students would no longer be able to maintain six feet of social distancing while in classrooms or hallways.
Based on current public health guidelines, if distancing is reduced to under 6 feet, anyone within 6 feet of a known positive case for a period of 15 minutes or more would need to be quarantined for 10 days. (new guidance effective 11/18/20). As a result, reduced spacing may increase the possibility of your child being a "close contact: of someone who is COVID positive and thus be subject to quarantine.
The School Committee must address several logistical and safety issues when considering the increase of in-person learning. Please read each question carefully and answer thoughtfully.
We thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate these challenging times.
