COVID-19: Update For Volunteers

COVID-19 virus

The safety and health of students, families, school volunteers, and community is the highest priority for Cambridge Public Schools (CPS). No cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) have been identified within Cambridge Public Schools, and we will keep you informed of any changes and key updates. In the meantime, CPS is posting updates around the clock on the new coronavirus website. Feel free to take a moment to learn how CPS is preparing and what you can do to help.

Important procedures have been posted to a new section of  the CPS website found HERE, in response to questions and concerns raised by the community.

The staff of Cambridge School Volunteers (CSV) is in regular contact with CPS staff and administration.  As of now, schools remain open but we will keep you posted with general updates and any school closings.  Please, though, exercise your own caution around whether you visit school during your regularly scheduled volunteer hours. Be sure to alert your collaborating staff at CSV and/or CPS if you are not able to volunteer on any given day or week. And if you are not feeling well, please stay home and practice self-care.
