The first day of school in New Fairfield will be September 2nd. The district plans to reopen with full-time in-person schooling. Parents were given the option to have children start the school year on remote learning. Plan A calls for having September 2nd, 3rd and 4th as Early Dismissal days, though New Fairfield HIgh School will have a special schedule during those three days. All schools will be open on Tuesday, September 8th for full days. The New Fairfield School District has planned for having small class sizes to accommodate physical distancing. Administrators will work with the local health department so if the number of cases increase in New Fairfield and the state, a hybrid or fully remote plan will be triggered.
