COVID Next Steps

Dear DPS Community,


We are writing to you today to share three updates this afternoon:


  • Feedback Forums

    The daily average of positive cases reported to the Danvers’ Board of Health has recently moved us from a low risk (green) community to a moderate one (yellow). Given this change, we are moving the level-based Feedback Forums to virtual meetings. You will receive a link to your Forum on the day of the event.



  • Please see the District Wide Nurse’s Update with a revised DPS Family COVID Information Sheet including information on return to school requirements, close contact information and travel information.

Kind regards,

Update 8/14: Danvers Family Reopening Survey and FAQs

Hello Danvers Community,


The Danvers Public Schools plan is to open for the 2020-2021 school year in a hybrid model.  Our reopening plan was shared at the August 6th School Committee meeting and can be found here.  We appreciate the feedback from our families and staff.  This week, we have been able to put together a full remote learning alternative taught by Danvers teachers with Danvers curriculum. (This is a revision from the original reopening plan.)


In order to help us plan for this hybrid model, we ask that you fill out a survey for each child attending the Danvers Public Schools. 



This survey requires you to commit to the learning model for your child to participate in for the coming school year (Danvers Hybrid Learning Model or the Danvers Full Remote Learning Alternative). This information will assist us in scheduling cohorts, transportation, after school care, etc.  For families who do not complete this survey by Wednesday, August 19th, your child will be automatically assigned to the Danvers Return To School model – the hybrid model.  


We have received many emails from parents and staff with questions that have helped us update our new Reopening FAQ’s. Please review this document before filling out the survey so you are able to make the best decision for your child’s placement.


In regards to transportation, please note, families will receive transportation registration information in an email next week. 


Thank you,


Lisa Dana, Mary Wermers, Keith Taverna
