Danbury students will return to the classroom on October 26th, for the first time since March. The district will move to a hybrid model for kindergarten through 12th graders, with preschoolers returning to the classroom the following week. Danbury opened the new school year with distance learning due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in the City. Superintendent Dr Sal Pascarella says their medical team has determined the community is under the “moderate range” for community spread of the virus. A larger number of students requested distance learning, so the hybrid model will allow the district to safely conduct in-school learning. Families may revise their choice by contacting their children’s school by Wednesday. The district and medical team will continue to monitor the spread of the virus and revise the learning model if necessary.
