Superintendent Letter: Learning Plan Update

District

 

Dear Families,

We plan to remain in a full in-person learning model until at least May 28, 2021.
Fully remote learners are still being honored by the Governor’s Office.

COVID-19 vaccines are now available to all persons in CT age 16 and older. For more information about vaccine clinics https://portal.ct.gov/vaccine-portal/COVID-19-Vaccination-Scheduling-Options

Reminder, if your child was COVID positive, a close contact of a COVID positive, or is exhibiting COVID symptoms, they need to stay home from school on Monday and you must contact the principal before returning to school. It is imperative that we finish the school year strong. Please stay home if you are sick.
