CCT's Post February Break Update

February Update- 2/21/2021

Good afternoon,

Tomorrow we return from break and will be in a Gray Week (9/11 Technical Week & 10/12 Academic Week.) Monday will be a Blue Cohort Day for 10/12 Academic Students. Please remember more families are making new decisions on the learning environment for their child. Therefore, our bus schedule remains transitory. In other words, your child's bus stop may have changed again. The Gray Academic Bus Schedule has changed, this includes the Gray Blue and Gray Yellow Academic Bus Schedules. Please review bus information here: https://www.smore.com/kcz47


It is important that we remain vigilant against this virus. Parents, please continue to check your students' health before sending them to school. Students, please remain cognizant of keeping six feet apart from others at all times. This six-foot threshold not only keeps you safe, but it is our "measuring stick" if someone has contracted Coronavirus in determining if you or others are a close contact. Therefore remember six feet not only keeps you safe but also keeps you in school. Also remeber

  1. If you traveled out of state this past week you must follow Massachusetts Travel Guidelines. All continental states are considered high risk and therefore, students must adhere to quarantine or testing protocols to reenter the school building.

To All,

We slightly altered some of the bus schedules. Please visit the link below for the new schedule beginning February 1.

Cape Cod Tech's 2020 School Report Card

Families and communities are critical partners to a school's success. Just as a student's report card shows how they are performing, the school report card shows how a school is performing in multiple areas. It shows the school's strengths and the challenges that need to be addressed to ensure the school is meeting the needs of all students. Please click the link below to view Cape Cod Regional Technical High School's Report Card.


Cape Cod Tech's 2020 DESE Report Card

Influenza Vaccination Requirement Removed


The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is removing the requirement for flu vaccination for attendance in childcare/preschool, primary, secondary and postsecondary education. Preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask-wearing and social distancing due to COVID-19. Given the intensive Commonwealth-wide efforts regarding COVID-19 vaccination, DPH wants to alleviate the burden to obtain flu vaccination and focus on continuing our COVID -19 vaccination efforts.


DPH continues to strongly recommend that everyone age six months and older receive their seasonal flu vaccine each year. ​


The updated schedule can be found here​.

MCAS Information For Parents of 11th Graders


October 21, 2020


Dear Parents/Guardians of Members of the Class of 2022:


As you are likely aware, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent school closures for in-person learning this past spring resulted in the cancellation of state-mandated English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics MCAS tests for your sons and daughters this past spring. The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) recently released the schedule to the right for testing the affected students during this 2020 - 2021 school year.


After careful consideration, the Cape Tech English Department is unanimous in recommending that your sons and daughters participate in the Next-Gen Computer-based MCAS test administration during the period from May 18 - May 27. The Cape Tech Administration is in agreement with this recommendation. However, it is necessary for parents/guardians to opt-out of the January 2021 test administration if your child will test in May 2021.



Following, please find a link to a Google Form where you are asked whether or not you wish to opt-out of the January 2021 testing as recommended.


Opt-out MCAS January 2021


Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond to the form. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.


Best regards,


Anne Wagner

Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment

School Bus Protocol

It is state protocol that school bus windows must remain open while students are on the bus even in inclement weather. Students should dress appropriately.

I recently reached out to DESE in regards to this protocol, and they shared the following information:


DESE recommends opening windows at least several inches and that students wear layers of warm clothes so that windows can remain open.


Mr. Terranova

What do I do if I need to quarantine?

If you need to quarantine due to travel, proximity to a person ill, or possibly even a positive test result, please continue to access your learning remotely. This is not an option. If you do not access your classes (academic or technical) remotely you will receive 0 for the expected work and be marked absent.


If you are isolating due to illness, a counselor will speak to your parent or guardian and make a plan.
