Local and State Protocols

Andover will meet and exceed safety standards as outlined by the DESE Guidance.  In consultation with DPH and our district medical advisor, the Andover Health and Safety team and Andover nurses have developed safety protocols for quarantine, reporting and contact-tracing, use of PPE, hand washing, materials management, and hand sanitizer use. 

It is necessary to ensure all students, whether enrolled in the hybrid learning model or remote academy, have received the appropriate vaccines before school starts. This is the same requirement APS has followed in previous years for the health and safety for the entire school community.
