Update and



Dear Boylston Schul-Verein Adult German Language School Community,

In order to show our preparedness and readiness for an In-Building/In-Person/ In-Class school start at the Boylston Schul-Verein/ BSV we would like to outline our guidelines and regulations in the context of Covid-19.

The following rules and regulations therefore will apply to every school evening:

  • It is extremely crucial that students, staff and BSV community stay at home when they show any symptoms! (Please contact the school or your classroom teacher immediately.)

  • All students, teaching staff and BSV community must social distance at an appropriate distance at all times, keeping the required distance of 6 feet whenever possible.

  • Sign-In and Sign-Out is needed at the BSV “Welcome Table”/ Entrance for students, teaching staff and all volunteers and guests of the BSV.

  • There will be a temperature check for all at the “Welcome” Table (at Entrance/ Sign-In table).

  • Wearing a mask is required, except while sitting at the assigned/ chosen classroom seat.

  • Students, teaching staff and all volunteers and guests supply their own masks, the BSV has extra masks for support at the “Sign-In/Sign-Out” table (for a small fee ).

  • All Language School and BSV community is requested to walk on the right side of the hallways.

  • Sani-wipes/ hand washing etc. at the “Welcome” Table (Sign-In/ Sign-Out) is requested.

  • Students are asked to remain in their own classroom, at their assigned or chosen seats or desks and avoid all forms of physical contact (shaking hands, hugging, etc.).

  • Students cannot be allowed to share their equipment (pens, books, laptops, etc.).

  • Each student has to bring the materials they need for each lesson.


Further Information on the first evening of classes back at the Boylston Schul-Verein:

  • The classroom teacher is not only a German Language teacher, but also a close contact perso for students regarding social-emotional well-being . In this special time, the classroom teachers will be even more important to support the student and will help them feel safe and welcome in their environment.

  • Classrooms, bathrooms and BSV common areas will be sanitized and wiped by the BSV before every school evening.

  • Air circulation in rooms and hallways has been checked and approved by the Town of Walpole.

  • The BSV Ratskeller has to remain closed for the entire duration of the evening. (This decision might change in the future.)
