The first day of school has been moved to Tuesday September 1st in Danbury for teacher training. Families are being called on to finalize their selection by August 9th for the upcoming school year. The Danbury Public School District is offering three state-mandated options including a hybrid mode. There will also be five days online learning at home with both teacher directed and independent opportunities. The other option is Homeschooling. Students formally withdraw from Danbury and their parents assume full responsibility for learning. Those choosing this option must contact Kevin Walston, Assistant Superintendent at (203) 797-4723 for formal withdrawal. School officials say because of uncertainties, families will have the ability to make changes after submission.
