We plan to remain in a full in-person learning model for the remainder of the school year.
Fully remote learners are still being honored by the Governor’s Office.
Important update about the remote learning option from the CT Department of Education:
The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) continues to emphasize that access to in-person learning opportunities is a priority, both for educational access and the importance of the social-emotional support provided to students in the school building. At this time, the Connecticut State Department of Public Health (DPH) and the CSDE do not anticipate the need to mandate, due to public health necessity, continued voluntary remote learning options next school year.
The Department of Health expects to be able to offer COVID vaccines to students aged 12-15 very soon. To that end, we are hoping to schedule vaccination clinics at each middle school.
