Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year

As much as we hoped we would be “back to normal”—how it was before the pandemic ran through our country and world—many of the same health and safety practices will be in place from last year. Once again this year, we will be flexible, adaptive, and resilient. We will work together to make this year as safe and productive as possible. The Glastonbury Public Schools Community will continue to rise to the occasion. Below are welcome letters from the Superintendent of Schools and the Board of Education Chair.

The Glastonbury High School STEAM Lab is a bold vision to prepare the next generation for careers and colleges in 2030 and beyond.

It will provide a flexible, modern space with state-of-the-art equipment for students to develop the skills employers and colleges are looking for today and in the future.

This exciting project will transform not only classroom space, but our curriculum as well. STEAM courses will be truly multidisciplinary, encompassing the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.

FREE School Meals

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has extended approval for school districts to continue providing free meals to all students during the 2021-2022 school year. Just like last year, student meals will be available at no charge. There is no action required (no registration) to receive the free meals.
