Dear Douglass 6th/7th Families,
We hope this letter finds you and your family healthy and well. We are excitedly counting down until your scholar returns for in-person learning on Monday, May 3rd! We are working to schedule another Family Zoom meeting prior to your scholars’ return, however we had an important update to share today.
Due to a change in arrangements with our bus company, the arrival and dismissal times for Douglass 6th-7th grade scholars have changed. Please note the new important details regarding their return to in-person learning:
In-Person Return Date: Monday, May 3rd
School Location: Fisher College satellite campus, located at 777 Church Street
Scholar Arrival Time: 8:45 AM
Scholar Dismissal Time: 3:15 PM
We understand that the change in school hours may have an impact on your decision to opt your child in or out of in-person learning. If you wish to change your child’s return status, please call the front desk at 774-762-4064 by Friday, April 2nd.
As you already know, Alma is in the process of building a new facility for the Frederick Douglass Campus. While the school building is under construction, Douglass scholars in grades K-3 are attending school in our temporary space at Immaculate Conception, located at 145 Davis Street. The above changes do not apply to those K-3 scholars or any Ottiwell scholars.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate this process. These spaces are only temporary. Our new, two-story school building is expected to be complete and ready for hundreds of hard-working Douglass Scholars in January 2022.
Principal Taylor DeLoach
