Due to the spike in COVID-19 cases reported in Danbury, School Superintendent Dr Sal Pascarella has announced that the year will start this fall with distance learning for all students. He acknowledged that this decision impacts so many families in a variety of ways. He intends to revisit the state of local health conditions and their impact on school programming on October 1st to determine the best model in which to continue. The school district is working with EdAdvance, the State Regional Education Service Center, to set up full-day childcare programming during the duration of Distance Learning. He thanked families for patience as the administration has to make decisions on these fast-paced circumstances and the impact they have on the community.
