Health Protocols for Students and Staff

The health and safety of our students, staff and entire school community is our highest priority as we plan for the reopening of school. It is absolutely critical that students and staff who show any signs of illness stay home and not report to school. If you have questions about the health of your child/yourself, or the health of anyone in your family, please contact your school directly and speak with the school nurse or principal. In collaboration with the Central CT Health Department, the following information is provided as guidance for navigating the complexities of COVID-19.

Religious Holidays - Excused Absence Form Letter

If your child will be absent from school due to a religious holiday, this will be counted as an excused absence from school, and our school district fully supports this absence. For your convenience, here is a form letter you can use to explain your child's absence. This letter should be submitted to the school office prior to your child's absence from school.
