Due to staffing issues pertaining to COVID-19, Danbury schools will open on a two hour delay schedule. 

Superintendent Kevin Walston says morning Extended Learning Program and morning preschool will be canceled Monday.

The State notified districts that they may use the revised CDC guidance due to the Omicron variant.  Danbury Public Schools will not continue individual routine contact tracing for inside schools, during school organized or supervised activities.  Positive cases in school, which includes notification to classrooms, grade or group level, athletic teams and clubs will continue.

The mini buses that are affected include: M15, M35, M41, and M43. Those buses will not run Monday.
