SA MIAA Ambassadors recently attended a virtual summit on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (Photo taken pre-COVID)

Good morning everyone, 


It is great to see lots of our students back in the building again and we hope that, as conditions allow, we will continue to move cautiously towards "normal life" as far as we are able to.


Thanks for continuing to support our focus on the health and safety of everyone in the building by reminding your children to continue to wear masks above their noses and to adhere to social distancing requirements whenever they are in school and with friends. We rely on your support in keeping SA open for our students as much as possible, now more than ever, as the strain of COVID impacts social and emotional health and wellbeing.


Please find reminders, information and upcoming dates to be aware of.


Do email with questions or concerns






Warm clothing reminder*

Please remember that there are no longer any mask breaks indoors. Breaks will be taken outside, as long as the weather is bearable. Once outside students must keep masks on and remain at 6ft distance. If it is too cold, the teacher may decide to have a brain break inside the classroom - masks will remain on.

*Should I wear a mask when I go out in public?

Yes. Governor Baker issued a revised Mask Order effective November 6, 2020 requiring all people in Massachusetts over 5 years of age to wear face masks or cloth face coverings in all public places, whether indoors or outdoors, even where they are able to maintain 6 feet of distance from others. Masks or face coverings are encouraged but not required for children between the ages of 2 and 5. Read the full DPH Guidance.

The revised order still allows for an exception for children under the age of 2 and for residents who cannot wear a face-covering due to a medical or disabling condition, but it allows employers to require employees to provide proof of such a condition. It also allows schools to require that students participating in in-person learning provide proof of such a medical or disabling condition.

It is critical to emphasize that social distancing measures remain in effect and keeping 6 feet apart from others remains important to slowing the spread of the virus.
