MEDFORD, MASS. — It has been a busy summer for Robert Chevrier.

Chevrier is the principal of St. Joseph School which serves about 210 students from preschool through eighth grade in this Boston suburb.

“We decided that we’re going to open up in-person but also stream classes for those parents who don’t want to send their child, yet, into school,” he said.

Coming to that decision took time. Chevrier spent the summer sending surveys to parents and teachers, meeting with a reopening committee and ordering safety equipment.
