A Message From the Executive Director

Given the most recent data on Covid-19 cases in New Bedford, we are going to continue our remote learning plan at least through the month of December. That's the message from GLCPS Executive Director Stephen Furtado, Ph.D. "New Bedford continues to remain in the Red Zone with cases increasing over the past five weeks. Currently, the city’s cases are 13.2% per 100,000. Cases must decrease below 4% for a minimum of three consecutive weeks before we will consider returning to the building. As we approach the holidays with the strong possibility for cases to continue to rise, the extension for remote learning through the end of the year is our best option."
