After ten school days this winter pushed the school year into the last week of June, Westford Public Schools instituted a Distance Learning program that would have students complete three days’ worth of work at home, letting school end by the third week of June. At the high-school level, each class was supposed to assign thirty minutes’ worth of work, and students had two weeks to complete each set. This is what students thought about the program:

Junior Erin Fletcher: "I thought it was a really good solution because it made it so that we weren't going to be staying super late into the year, [...] if you didn't leave it all until the last minute, you were fine. I did one per day for the week leading up to the due date and it was just like homework. [...] my brother [in 4th grade] had to build a model of Roald Dahl's writing room, and it was really good and he really had a lot of fun, so I think it was useful for the younger students as well as students at Westford Academy to make up snow days without going way late into the summer."
