April 21, 2020

visit our Facebook pageIn accordance with Governor Baker's emergency action to close all Massachusetts K-12 schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Friends Academy students will remain in distance learning through the end of the 2019-20 school year.

We are doing everything in our power to create the best possible learning environment and experience for our students, faculty, and families. Our incredible community has come together to embrace the challenge in front of us. To see some examples of how Friends has responded to distance learning, visit our Facebook page.

We will continue to follow the latest information, guidance, and emergency actions from government and public health officials and communicate any schedule changes to families via email.

As always, please reach out to me or your child’s teacher, advisor, or division head if you have questions or concerns about any aspect of distance learning.

Ben Kennedy
Head of School
