Condon COVID-19 School Closure Information

  • Dear Condon Families,

    This is Principal Chisholm with some important updates for online learning, technology and food distribution. We will continue to provide updates in the days ahead.

    First, our teachers have been working hard to create a new website for all the Condon online learning resources.

    The site can be accessed from this page- you can click on the Condon Learn from Home link on the right and below, Digital Learning tab at the top of any page on our site, or you can go directly to the site using the following web address: https://sites.google.com/bostonpublicschools.org/condonlearnfromhome  

    The site includes the following: 

    • Grade level and specialists pages with student work assignments for math, literacy, writing, and videos from teachers
    • Resources for students with disabilities and English Language Learners
    • Wellness and social-emotional resources
    • Food distribution information
    • Technology resources

    You can view this site from a laptop, tablet or phone.

    Second, for all students in 3-8 who do not have a chromebook, BPS will deliver a Chromebook laptop directly to your home. Please be on the look out for an email from Boston Public Schools about the delivery date. I will continue to share more details when they become available. Chromebooks will no longer be distributed at the Condon. 

    Third, the Condon is a food distribution site, Please spread the word to all BPS families. Any BPS family can come to pick up pre-packaged breakfast and lunch on Monday from 8:30-11:30 in the cafeteria. 

    We miss you and look forward to the day when the Condon is full again! 

    Warm regards, 

    Mr. Chisholm, Principal
