New Milford Schools will be on remote learning to start off the week. Interim Superintendent Alisha DiCorpo shared a message on Friday that schools would be open in the hybrid model Monday and Tuesday, but that was based on COVID-19 data at the time. Now the schools will be on remote learning today and tomorrow.
She says the additional two days of remote instruction, as a mitigation strategy, will limit the number of students and staff who potentially could become close contacts of cases so near to the upcoming holiday. She hopes this will also ensure adequate staffing levels in all schools.
The Remote Learning mode, over the two day period, will bring continuity of instruction leading up to the holiday break and DiCorpo hopes will provide a smooth transition for the five remote days beyond break.
