The Londonderry School Board is in the process of forming a 2021 School Reopening Task Force, which will be tasked with reviewing and recommending elements of the District Reopening Plan for the 2021-2022 School Year. The Task Force will be composed of parents, staff, and community members, and efforts will be made to ensure that the members represent a broad range of our community. We are also actively seeking applicants with backgrounds in medicine, public safety, mental health, and policy development.
If you have interest in being considered for membership on the Task Force, and have the ability to commit to 5-6 virtual meetings during the month of July, you are encouraged to apply for membership using the form linked below. The School Board will deliberate upon the structure and membership of the Task Force at a special meeting on Tuesday, July 6 at 7:00. Those chosen for membership will be informed after that meeting.

We are writing today to inform you of a change to our current safety protocols in the Londonderry School District. Yesterday afternoon, the New Hampshire Department of Public Health Services released new “Permissive” guidance regarding face masks in schools and child care facilities. This in effect gave us their recommendation that masks can now be optional in our buildings going forward. There was no time frame on the guidelines, and indications are that this will remain in place as long as community spread numbers continue to be low. While it is too early to say with complete confidence, it appears that this guidance could remain in place through the reopening of school in the fall.
Where we are following NHDPH guidance by virtue of our reopening plan, the District is empowered to make this adjustment now. We are currently working on a method by which parents can communicate their choice of masking for their child to the schools, which will likely be either a form or a permission slip. You will receive details on that method of communication from the buildings as soon as it is ready. Our summer programs start on 6/28 and we will certainly be ready by then.
Relative to masks in the fall, we do believe that this recommendation will still be in place by then, given the absence of a significant spike in COVID cases and a subsequent change in guidance from the NHDPHS. We intend to continue forward with our planning process to collect data as well as parent and teacher feedback over the summer, and to present our update to the reopening plan to the School Board in August.
