When winter break ends for Ridgefield students, they will resume classes in a hybrid model. All Ridgefield Public Schools had been on remote learning leading up to the break. School health and safety liaison Aaron Crook said in a letter to families that reducing person density in school buildings is a mitigation strategy to further prevent the spread of COVID-19. The district also planned to take other mitigation efforts during the break. Ridgefield High School and students in the two middle schools had been learning in the hybrid model before winter break, but this will be a change for the six elementary schools which had full in-person learning.
