CAMBRIDGE — Dorchester County Public Schools announced plans to move to Phase 2 of their reopening plan on Oct. 27.

In a video message on Friday, Sept. 25, Superintendent Dave Bromwell said DCPS schools plan to commence the Phase 2 “A week/B week” alternate attendance for most students with virtual attendance available for students at parents’ request.

The A week/B week rotation for pre-k, kindergarten, 6th grade, and 9th grade begins Oct. 12, and A week students will be in person attendance Oct. 27, with B week students attending in person the following week on Nov. 3.

When the A week/B week rotation begins, D students will come every week.

For all students, Mondays will be asynchronous learning so staff can deep clean the school facilities, and then attending on the assigned rotation on Tuesday through Friday.

Information on safe reopening and answers to frequently asked questions are available on the DCPS website,

Bromwell said all parents and families need to do “a serious health check” on their students each day before they send them to school.
