Massachusetts Travel Guidelines

To comply with the Massachusetts travel restrictions, a parent/guardian/family member may enter the state to drop off a student and must immediately leave campus and the state to meet the exemption of transitory travel unless they meet certain exemptions. If a parent is staying overnight, they are subject to the travel order, which requires a 14-day quarantine or proof of a negative test result (within the past 72 hours).
