Initial Fall 2020 Parent/Caregiver Survey

Initial Fall 2020 Parent/Caregiver Survey
Posted on 06/23/2020

Dear Cambridge Public School (CPS) Families,

Our school district is working hard to prepare for the safe reopening of schools in September, should conditions allow and in accordance with guidelines from federal, state and local health and education agencies. The changes that will need to be made will be difficult, and we will need your help as we continue to plan.

Massachusetts has not yet announced requirements for reopening schools next fall, but a range of guidelines have been developed for related programs including summer school, childcare and youth programs. Based on current guidance, we are actively working to develop a number of procedures to ensure:

  • Physical/social distancing including 6 feet of distance around each individual 
  • Eliminating unnecessary mingling and gatherings
  • Securing adequate supplies of mask, gloves, cleaners and sanitizers
  • Updating transportation procedures including increased sanitization and reducing the number of students per bus
  • Providing remote learning and work opportunities to protect those who are at greatest risk if they contract COVID-19

Although many factors remain to be determined, we are asking for your help in understanding what your family is thinking about, in terms of the return to in-person schooling next year. Please take the short survey below to help us understand what you are envisioning for your student and family next fall.


Please note: we are committed to providing the support students and families need -- from bus transportation and technology to specialized education programs and meaningful engagement with teachers and schools. We will be sharing more details of our planning over the coming weeks.

With so much to plan and prepare for, we really appreciate your help. We will stay in touch with you as we begin to make safety-related decisions in the weeks and months ahead.

Please take good care of yourselves and thank you for your assistance.


James P. Maloney
