Ms. Diane Pintavalle has been honored with the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). This is the nation's highest honor for teachers in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics and/or computer science fields.

Ms. Pintavalle is our third recipient of the PAEMST award in the last five years. Click here for her PAEMST award biography. Ms. Pintavalle is also this year's Teacher of the Year for Glastonbury Public Schools and she was selected as a CT State Teacher of the Year Semifinalist.
Our schools use Signs of Suicide (SOS) to teach suicide prevention to students. This portal provides parents with information about our suicide prevention efforts and helpful tools for supporting children's mental health.

Graduation Date Set for June 10, 2020
The State of Connecticut has passed a new law regarding school attendance. Boards of Education can now allow high school seniors to graduate on a set date without needing to make-up inclement weather days (or other unforeseen school closings). The Glastonbury Board of Education has set the Class of 2020 Graduation date for June 10, 2020. The graduation date will not be adjusted based on "snow" days. We hope this helps our families with travel and celebration planning.
Note: The last day of school for other grade levels will continue to be extended due to school closings for weather and other emergencies.
