District News and Announcements
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.
Free School Meals for all Glastonbury Children
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved an extended waiver making all school meals free for every child that resides in Glastonbury. Glastonbury Public Schools will provide FREE breakfast (at those schools that offer breakfast) and FREE lunch for all children age 18 and under. This includes children who are present in school, children who are eLearning from home, and children not enrolled in our school system but residing in Glastonbury.
For those attending school in-building, there is no action required (no registration) to receive the free meals.
Parents may pick up Grab & Go meals (for children not in-building) on Monday through Friday at Smith Middle School (far left of the building) and Glastonbury High School (entrance D, garage door, far left of the building) between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm. Both breakfasts and lunches will be available for pick up, but you may only pick up meals for a single day. To help with planning, please complete our eLearning Grab and Go School Meals form to indicate your expected regular pick up schedule.
Lunch options (including Grab and Go) can be found on our Nutrislice site. The Grab & Go hot option will need to be reheated at home. Breakfast options usually consist of a muffin, cereal or bagel with fruit and milk.
Note: At this time, in-school breakfast is available in all schools except Buttonball Lane, Hebron Avenue and Hopewell.
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.

The beginning of this year will certainly look and feel much different. It is likely we will all face numerous challenges, but Glastonbury Public Schools will continue to provide the best possible education to our students.
