Monday, August 30th is the first day of school in Webster for grades 1 through 12.  In a post on Twitter, Superintendent of Webster Public Schools, Dr. Ruthann Petruno-Goguen wrote, “We are excited to welcome our students back and we have many great things planned!”

One item of note on the school calendar is another Covid-19 vaccination clinic coming to Bartlett High School on September 15th, open to any community member as well as students and staff.

After many months of at-home and remote learning, most students are expected to be back in the classroom for the 2021-2022 school year.  Some Covid-19 restrictions have been eased, but face-covering masks will still be required for all students and staff inside school buildings.  Students will not be required to wear a mask outdoors or for sports, but will those who ride a bus to school will need to wear one.  (More on face mask rules here.)
