Glastonbury Public Schools

Bright Futures Begin Here!

School Buildings Closed

In order to protect the health of our students, staff, parents, and community from the coronavirus pandemic, all Glastonbury Public School buildings are closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. All school related events, including athletics, are canceled or will be held online. During this time, buildings will be locked and inaccessible to the public. Students will be engaged in e-Learning during the school building closure. We will continue to monitor the coronavirus situation and will keep you informed. Please click below for more information.

District News and Announcements

Summer Learning

We encourage students to continue learning and growing during the summer months. We are fortunate that this summer all students entering grades 1–12 will have a school iPad at home. We have developed a Summer Learning website to provide a range of suggested summer learning activities.

We believe that summer learning comes in many forms. The site includes optional online activities as well as suggested activities that are decidedly “off-line.”

Kindergarten Orientation

Please visit our district's Kindergarten Orientation webpage to learn all about the Kindergarten year!

Note: Kindergarten Visitation Days for the Spring of 2020 are currently postponed. We hope that there may be an opportunity to reschedule these important school events later in the spring or summer. We will reach out to parents of incoming kindergarten students when, and if, kindergarten visitation is rescheduled.

New Curriculum Directors

We welcome three new curriculum directors who will replace retiring directors on July 1. Pictured left to right:

Holly Constantine will begin as Director of Art, replacing Cindy Parsons. Mrs. Constantinte has taught art for 18 years at all levels in Glastonbury. Her intelligence, creativity, and listening and problem-solving skills make her a perfect fit for this position.

Elizabeth Cole will replace Dr. Jill Carey as the Director of Career Technical Education. Ms. Cole has served many roles in other districts including Science Department Coordinator, STEM Supervisor, and Assistant Principal. Her work has been described as "transformational."

Jennifer Spring has been appointed Director of Health & Physical Education. She replaces Ann Marie Colebrook. Mrs. Spring taught for 13 years before serving 8 years as a Health & P.E. administrator. She is described as genuine and supportive and as a highly effective communicator.

Thank You Retiring Educators!
