Dear School Committee Members and Superintendents:
None of us could have anticipated how much COVID-19 has disrupted our plans for 2020.
We have all been working under extraordinary and unprecedented circumstances that have
forced us to adapt and deal with the implications of the pandemic, including the social contract
with students and each other that we have valued over the years.
Regrettably, due to the anticipated limits on large gatherings, requirements to preserve public
health practices, reluctance of exhibitors, and the loss of access to our convention venue,
we will not be able to host our Annual MASC/MASS Joint Conference that was originally
scheduled for November 4-7, 2020.
