From the advisory:

"This advisory is intended as a reminder that state and federal law require state educational agencies and local school districts to provide all elementary and secondary students with equal access to public education—irrespective of race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or immigration status. Our schools play a critically important role in supporting vulnerable populations, and we have been heartened by affirmative statements in recent weeks by schools and districts in Massachusetts that have reiterated their commitment to serving immigrant communities in these uncertain times."
