Important Message

The Coronavirus is a serious public health emergency. The City of Boston has been taking aggressive action to stay on top of it, and keep people healthy and safe. The safety of our students, families, teachers, staff, and school community has been at the center of our concerns. The President of the United States, the governor of Massachusetts and Mayor Welch have announced a national, state and city emergency.   In addition, Mayor Walsh has announced that starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020, he will be closing all Boston Public Schools to students and Paige Academy will be following these recommendations. Paige Academy will be closed starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020. This is out of an abundance of caution to ensure that we are taking action to protect our students, our families, and our teachers. The intention is to reopen our school the week of April 27 however, if the situation in Boston with Coronavirus changes for the better, we will bring students back to school before April 27. We are acting early and with urgency to ensure the health and safety of the community.

Paige Academy will be open for a regular school day on Monday, March 16 to allow the flexibility needed to ensure a smooth transition that will allow for parents to plan, students to gather their belongings, and the distribution of any learning materials that are ready for use at home.

As we continue to receive updates, we will share those with you.

Thank you,

Paige Academy Admin Team
