No April Vacation for Pentucket Schools, But Summer Vacation Begins Earlier

Pentucket Regional High School.

Students in the Pentucket Regional School District are giving up April vacation so as to not disrupt new remote learning routines.

While there are no classes today—Patriot’s Day, the District School Committee voted to continue remote learning through the planned April break. The move means students will end classes early this year, on June 18.

Pentucket Superintendent Justin Bartholomew thanked families for their “flexibility and understanding.” He explained, “This decision will allow our district to end the school year a little earlier than expected, which we feel is necessary given the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact it has had on all of our lives and daily routines. Stay safe and be well.”

Pentucket Regional School District closed schools in an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in mid-March. Since then schools across the state have been ordered to remain closed through May 4, at least.
