Roadmap to Reopening: August 24th & 25th – Student Phase-In Plan

Posted on 08/23/2020

Cabot Public Schools has updated our plans for the first two days of school. 

K-12 Traditional In-Classroom Students & Cabot Panther Digital Academy Students

Instead of all K-12 students (including CPDA students) beginning on Monday, August 24th, students will be phased-in depending on their last name.

Only students whose last names begin with A-K will attend on Monday, August 24th.  (CPDA students A-K will log-in)

Only students whose last names begin with L-Z will attend on Tuesday, August 25th.  (CPDA students L-Z will log-in)

The first day of school for ALL students will be Wednesday, August 26th.  


If students reside in the same household but have different last names, our principals will make all accommodations necessary to assist those families. Please contact your school principal if you have questions or need assistance.


*ACE students will remain on their normal schedule. ACE North will follow the two day phase-in plan above like everyone else.


Pre-K Students:

The schedule for Pre-K students will be different.

Monday, August 24 – Pre-K Boys Only

Tuesday, August 25 – Pre-K Girls Only

Wednesday, August 26 – All Pre-K Students

*Tuesday, September 8th – Pre-K Bus Transportation Begins


Phasing in students the first two days of school will be a great benefit for our staff and students. This will give us the opportunity to orient our students to many of the mitigation efforts that will be expected.  

We will spend the first day focusing on routines and our "new normal". This will include student and class transitions, cafeteria and recess procedures, as well as classroom expectations in regard to face coverings and social distancing. This will be better accomplished working with smaller groups the first two days. 

We will orient our students to new Chromebooks in smaller groups.  

We know there are concerns with not being able to walk students to class on the first day.  Managing smaller groups of “first day” students will ensure that we provide the supervision needed as parents drop-off students on the first day. 

There are also so many benefits for our transportation department to work with smaller groups of students the first two days.  As drivers become familiar with students and routes, we anticipate that this will impact the lengthy delays we usually experience the first two days of school. 

We now have the opportunity to teach students and parents about drop-off and pick-up procedures in smaller groups.  We believe this will be very beneficial when everyone starts on Wednesday!
