Glastonbury Public Schools

COVID-19 Resources

COVID-19 Information will be updated prior to the start of the
2022-2023 school year. We await state guidance on all COVID-19 operations for next school year.

Please see the COVID-19 Dashboard and additional resources below.

COVID-19 Dashboard

The dashboard is closed for the summer months.

Glastonbury Public Schools will provide transparent and accurate data on COVID-19 cases in our schools. We will also maintain student and staff member privacy.

  • This dashboard will be updated at least once daily every Monday through Friday.

  • Cases and quarantines come and go regularly based on critical dates (date symptoms appeared, test dates, last contact, etc.). The dashboard is kept accurate. Please know this data is trustworthy.

  • A case is removed from the list once they are cleared to return to school or work per CDC guidelines.

  • Any Glastonbury Public Schools student or staff member who tests positive for COVID-19 will isolate at home.
