All Hingham public schools started the year in full remote learning because of the COVID-19 brought students back to classrooms today with health protocols in place and contingency plans set for potential COVID-19 outbreaks.

Before the first day of school, parents are usually encouraged to make sure their children get a good night’s rest and eat a healthy breakfast in the morning. Well, this year, that message was a little different for the families of students returning to the physical classroom today. 

Parents were telling their kids to wear their mask. They were telling their kids you have to practice social distancing and modeling.

Most Hingham students are attending classes part-time, twice a week. These students also are expected to complete remote learning each day school day. For the remainder of the week, students are learning remotely. 

While parents are generally satisfied with how schools and the district have responded during the pandemic so far, there are large gaps between what parents want and what is currently available.
