We plan to remain in a full in-person learning model for the remainder of the school year.
We have posted our NPS re-opening COVID plan for September on the website and sent it home to families. Please send us your feedback by June 1st so that we can finalize it for you. You will notice that masks, cohorting, and social distance requirements will be lifted unless required by law at that time. You will also notice that the Department of Health is not requiring remote learning next year therefore all learning will be held in person.
Masks in Schools
Although at this time, masks are not required outdoors or indoors for fully vaccinated people in CT, the Department of Health is requiring masks to be worn in schools for all people until the last day of school in June. However, the outdoor mask requirement has eased in that students and staff who remain 6 feet apart when outside can shed their masks.
