Academic excellence for every student, in every classroom, in every school.
Earlier this week, Taunton Public Schools issued an adjustment of our athletic schedule. We have informed our coaches and are adjusting our schedules so that there should be no game or practice activity past 6:45 pm on the Athletic Fields by Taunton Public School teams. This is a safety precaution and we only control our home game times. Other districts might not be in an at-risk area and may proceed with their scheduled night games in their districts.
We will be following this plan from a week to week basis and may make adjustments as necessary based on the Department of Public Health guidelines. Additionally, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources announced that an aerial pesticide application will be taking place. This is aimed at reducing mosquito populations to limit the incidence and spread of EEE infection.
