Our children belong in school - in-person, full-time.  We, the residents of Wayland, MA, call upon the members of the Wayland School Committee and the Superintendent of Wayland Public Schools to re-open all Wayland schools to in-person, full-time learning starting on April 5, 2021.  

With a combination of open windows, outdoor instruction, social distancing, strict mask wearing, hand-washing, and continued regular testing, our children and teachers can safely return to a traditional school environment. 

We understand our teachers are concerned to return to school. COVID-19 continues around us.  But, the scientific evidence is clear that with social distancing, mask wearing and proper ventilation, our children can learn in a classroom.  The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Massachusetts Dept of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) have both endorsed a full-time return to the classroom.  With the rate of vaccinations increasing steadily in Massachusetts, we hope that many teachers, administrators, and parents will be vaccinated as the spring progresses.

Join our effort to open the Wayland Public Schools as soon as possible.
