WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Members of the West Springfield School Committee unanimously voted Monday night to allow students to begin school remotely this fall.
The decision for students to begin remotely was proposed by public schools superintendent, who recommended for a phased return, pictured below.
Mayor William Reichelt said there are a lot more details that need to be worked out in this plan before students can start in September.
Easthampton also announced Monday that students will start the year fully remotely in September.
Easthampton Superintendent LeClair also said that the planned in-person graduation scheduled for next week has been canceled due to Governor Charlie Baker rolling back the number of people allowed for an outdoor gathering.
