In accordance with Governor Baker's mandate for all Massachusetts public and private schools, Charles River School has shifted to remote learning for the remainder of the school year.

The school will continue to monitor the situation closely through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as we plan for our return to campus next fall. In addition, CRS has convened an internal task force in order to gather and share the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding preventative measures against the virus. 

This webpage provides easy access to all community messages as well as helpful information on myriad topics related to COVID-19. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
