Governor Baker closes all schools until April 6th

Dear APS families and staff,

At a news conference on Sunday, March 15, 2020, Governor Charlie Baker announced a mandatory closing of all Massachusetts’ public schools for three (3) weeks. As a reminder, on Friday, Dr. Berman made the decision to close all Andover Public Schools from March 16th-27th. The governor’s mandate extends this decision until April 6, 2020.

As a reminder:

  • Learning materials will be available for pick-up at your school during school hours on Tuesday, March 17th, if your child was absent on Friday.
  • Andover Food Services will continue our best efforts to feed our students. We will be preparing bagged breakfasts and lunches out of our production kitchen at Andover High School, where our regular lunch staff will prepare meals in a safe and sanitary environment. Both pick-up and drop-off locations will provide a student with breakfast and lunch for two days. Please click here for further details.

We recognize these decisions impact our families and students and we appreciate your patience and cooperation. Please visit the district’s website for updated information. We understand this is a difficult time and your health and safety are our highest priority. We will communicate further information as it becomes available. 


Shelley Berman
