LOWELL — Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School announced it is ready to welcome new high school students and returning students back to a “totally clean and anti-COVID school” in September.
In a press release from the school, it states the reopening plan will allow students to go to school, in-person, at least two days a week.
According to the release, registered nurse Amy Hendl and faculties manager Ken Bello have worked on health policies and procedures on building and installing protective classroom dividers, hygiene dispensers and other safety upgrades.
Bello has designed a technology plan that provides every student with a Chromebook to use at home, while equipping classrooms and teachers with technology to increase learning during both synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
“This small public high school attracts students from Lowell and surrounding towns who are
looking for a comprehensive high school experience in a smaller setting,” the release states. “LMACS teachers have always provided students personal attention in classroom settings and now in the COVID era, these small class sizes also ensure the highest level of safety.”
Instruction will include both remote and in-person methodologies. Teachers at the charter school will combine “the best of both instructional worlds to ensure maximum learning while maintaining the personal touch that LMACS is known for,” the release concludes.
School starts Sept. 16. Those interested in applying should visit LMACS.com, or call 978-656-3165 for an interview or meeting.
