Danbury schools are closed today and tomorrow due to staffing and transportation issues due to COVID-19. Superintendent Kevin Walston says they initially planned a two-hour delay throughout the week giving them the time needed to plan for the safety of students and to preserve teacher and support staff’s ability to adequately plan for their day. But he says they continue to struggle with staffing in all areas. Danbury Schools will be closed today and tomorrow, but Walston says they plan to open the following week, anticipating improved staffing. While Walston said the abrupt closure created “an additional burden” for families, he appreciated the flexibility under these difficult circumstances.
