Principal's Message

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information 

Scott Hoffman - Principal, The Bromfield School


Dear Bromfield Students and Families:

We hope this message finds you well.  While we are making every attempt to not overwhelm you with emails, we did want to provide some clarification around work expectations as we move forward.  

We recognize that there may be quite a bit of angst about how much work should be done while school is out of session.  We certainly want our students to be active learners during the time away from school and our teachers are continuing to develop activities that engage our students.  Starting on Monday, these activities will be located on a link on the website.  Teachers will also be in contact with their classes via email or other platforms.  

The current direction from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) is to encourage students to be actively engaged and connected to the opportunities.  While teachers may provide feedback and encouragement to students, this work will not be graded and will not be part of their transcript. The DESE is clear in their directive that we are not replicating a school day and that the activities suggested are indeed not mandatory to complete by the time students return to school.  The message is that when school hopefully opens on April 7th, classes will resume where they left off. If that directive changes, we will let you know as soon as we are informed. Please note that AP courses can move forward with the AP course curriculum at this time but again that work will not be graded and teachers will need to review all of this material when we return.  We are also waiting to hear from the College Board about their next steps.

Keeping a regular routine is the best way for students to do these activities.  We encourage everyone to build in a regular structure for the day that stresses balance.  The attached infographic created by Mr. Shaw is a good reference for working from home.

We appreciate your patience during these truly incredible circumstances.  Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.  


Scott Hoffman,


Robin Benoit,
