Hello Reilly Community,

I am happy to report that our COVID case numbers have significantly decreased this week. This trend is also seen throughout the district. Thank you all for your cooperation and continued support with our COVID mitigation efforts. We will continue to follow all COVID related protocols. Please do not send your child to school if they are experiencing any COVID related symptoms.


I have linked a needs assessment form below for parents to fill out. Please fill this out at your earliest convenience. Your responses will be used to help develop our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) for next school year. Additionally, the QIP is then used as a guide for our school budget. Your responses will help determine our needs and then be used to draft our budget for adoption with the help of the School Site Council.


The School Site Council will meet on Tuesday (1/25) at 4:00 PM via Zoom. The agenda and Zoom Link can be found below.


Our pool testing day will continue to be Monday. We are testing over 250 students on a regular basis. I have also linked the updated Lowell Public Schools Quarantine Procedures below.


Enjoy the weekend,


Ron Fusco

Interim Principal

Scholar's Theme this Month is Kindness

This is such an important character trait. All the Reilly School staff work to create an environment that fosters the development of this character trait. Below you will find some at home supplemental resources for families. ------Mrs.Ruiz

COVID Information

If your child is not feeling well and has COVID like symptoms, please communicate this information to the school ASAP. Additionally, if your child tests positive for COVID, please make us aware by notifying Nurse Ron immediately at this email address: rmote@lowell.k12.ma.us. This information is vital and time sensitive. Please consider signing your child up for our COVID pool testing if you have not done so already. The link to consent for COVID pool testing is here.


Updated Close Contact Guidance From DESE

“Once children ages 5-11 have been fully vaccinated (i.e., 2 weeks following their second vaccine dose), if they are subsequently identified as a close contact and are asymptomatic, they will be exempt from testing and quarantine protocols (including Test and Stay). Vaccinated children who are not close contacts also have a modified list of symptoms to be monitored for, and should follow testing and quarantine response protocols if they are experiencing any of the following: fever (100.0° Fahrenheit or higher), chills, or shaking chills; difficulty breathing or shortness of breath; new loss of taste or smell; or muscle aches or body aches. These individuals may also seek clinical guidance to assess the need for PCR testing if they have other possible symptoms of COVID-19.” (the link to this updated guidance can be found here)
