Snow Days will be eLearning Days
During the 2020-2021 school year, normal "snow days" will now be eLearning days. On inclement weather days, students will connect with their teachers and classes from home, using the internet. We will notify families of an inclement weather eLearning day as soon as possible so that they may be prepared.
If there are widespread power/internet outages impacting teachers and students, we will not have a remote learning day. Instead, we will close school for the day and it will be made up at the end of the school year (except for GHS Seniors). In-person extra-curricular activities will be cancelled, unless road conditions improve enough to hold the activity.
Equity and Social Justice
Glastonbury Public Schools is actively working to ensure equity in our schools. Please visit our Equity and Social Justice webpage for more information, including action steps we are taking to promote our district’s anti-bias and anti-racism work.
Student Travel Protocols
Our school system follows the CT State Travel Advisory Executive Orders, which require quarantine in many travel circumstances.
Please refer to the following information regarding Glastonbury Public School protocols for student travel.
"Renew and Reimagine" is our theme for this school year. We invited art students and staff members in all our buildings to create colorful origami and paper butterflies. The butterflies represent the changes and adaptations of the past year, as well as the resilience we've all needed to help us through.
Participants wrote their positive intentions for the year inside their paper butterflies. Then our art teachers installed the artwork into a stunning display in the breezeway at Glastonbury High School.
The video linked below, created by Director of Art Holly Constantine, highlights the project.
We also invite you to drive under the GHS breezeway (entrance "C") and look up to see the beautiful butterflies inside.
FREE School Meals
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended approval for Glastonbury Schools to continue providing FREE meals to all students and residents 18 years or younger through June 30, 2021.
We offer these meals in all schools for in-school learners and at the grab-and-go meal sites (Glastonbury High School and Smith Middle School) for remote learners and any other children 18 years or younger.
