Lieutenant Governor Visits Early Learning Center

Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz recently visited the district's Early Learning Center at Eastbury to learn about our successful new program. Our state has lost tens of thousands of childcare slots since the coronavirus pandemic began. The center provides Glastonbury Public Schools teachers and Glastonbury community members with affordable, quality childcare in a safe and engaging center.

The center is self-supporting with no cost to taxpayers. Click here to learn more about the ELC at Eastbury.

No Plan to Change Our Current Learning Model

We have begun to receive questions regarding future plans for learning. At this time we have no plans to change our current learning model (Hybrid Plan B). Overall our reopening plan appears to have worked well.

We are watching carefully as some local schools have had to close for a few days or a couple of weeks due to the spread of COVID-19. Meanwhile, some districts are preparing to open secondary schools five days a week in the coming month. We will continue to monitor these communities, especially those with large high schools like ours, as we regularly evaluate our learning plan. We will also be cautious about changing plans as cooler weather and the flu season approach.

While we have no set date to transition to Plan A (full-time in-school classes for all grades), we would provide parents, students, and staff with 1-2 weeks notice before making such a change. A transition to Plan C (eLearning for all grades), on the other hand, could be made quickly if needed to protect the health and safety of our community.
