Improved Softball Complex

posted Nov 22, 2017, 6:01 AM by Patti Renaud   [ updated Nov 22, 2017, 6:01 AM ]

Work was recently completed on a new and improved softball complex at Glastonbury High School, thanks to a productive partnership of town and volunteer organizations. The Glastonbury Public Schools Athletic Department worked with Glastonbury Parks and Recreation, Glastonbury Little League, the Glastonbury Girls Softball Association, and the Glastonbury Rotary Club to enhance the high school field and dugouts. These groups contributed their vision, fundraising efforts, and labor (over 300 hours donated by the Rotary Club). We are so grateful for everyone's commitment to this project. We look forward to further improvements as well, which include plans for fencing and a press box.

Air Conditioning Update

posted Oct 25, 2017, 6:12 AM by Patti Renaud   [ updated Oct 25, 2017, 6:12 AM ]

On October 24, 2017 the Glastonbury Town Council approved spending $600,000 to fund design specifications and electrical upgrades necessary for four of our elementary schools to be air conditioned. Nayaug Elementary School, along with Glastonbury High and Smith Middle Schools, are already air conditioned. Gideon Welles School requires further study. We look forward to the Town Council voting in the coming months to complete the funding to implement this project. When all of our schools are air conditioned, all of our students and staff members will be able to focus on teaching and learning every school day. We appreciate all the people—parents, teachers, students, and community members—who have taken time to support this project over the years.

Eastbury School Utilization

posted Sep 26, 2017, 8:56 AM by Patti Renaud   [ updated Sep 26, 2017, 8:56 AM ]

On September 25, 2017 the Board of Education voted on a plan for the utilization of the Eastbury School building for next school year when the Eastbury Elementary School closes. In the fall of 2018 the LINKS Academy, including post-graduate students, and the district's preschool program will be located at the Eastbury building. The district's Pupil Services/Special Education offices will also move to Eastbury. There are numerous educational and financial benefits to centralizing these programs and providing room for them to expand. In addition, the building will house a weight room for athletics training of students across the district. Details of the plan are available in the Board's Eastbury School Utilization report. The Board will continue to discuss the use of this facility during their meetings throughout the year as the plan is further refined.

Eastbury School Utilization

posted Sep 12, 2017, 9:59 AM by Patti Renaud   [ updated Sep 12, 2017, 9:59 AM ]

The Board of Education is currently considering a plan to make use of Eastbury School when it closes in 2018. Several district special education programs, including the LINKS Academy, post-graduate programs, and special education preschool program would be relocated to the Eastbury building. The district's Pupil Services/Special Education offices would also move to Eastbury. There are numerous educational and financial benefits to centralizing these special education programs and providing room for them to expand. In addition, the building would house a weight room for athletics training of students across the district. The Board encourages the community to learn more by reviewing the Eastbury School Utilization report. The plan is likely to be discussed and voted upon during upcoming Board of Education meetings.
