The Litchfield elementary School District Governing Board approved a phased approach to resume In-Person Learning (5 days per week in classrooms).
Thank you to our dedicated Governing Board for approving Superintendent Gunning's recommendation to use a phased approach to resume In-Person Learning (5 days per week in classrooms). Students who chose the In-Person Learning model will resume learning 5 days per week in classrooms in accordance to the following schedule.
Monday, October 26, 2020 Preschool - Grade 5
Monday, November 2, 2020 Grades 6 - 8
Students who chose the Hybrid Learning model or Digital Learning Academy will remain in their chosen programs. Please contact your child’s principal if you would like to discuss transitioning your child to another learning model.
In-Person Learning (5 days per week in classrooms) is widely recognized as academically and socially-emotionally best for most students. We are delighted to offer three quality learning models to our families so that they may choose the model that best suits them.
Our plans for educational excellence are bolstered by our intensive mitigation plan and upgraded safety supports. This includes promoting healthy habits, requiring face coverings, incorporating hand washing breaks and disinfecting high touch surface areas throughout the school day, disinfecting entire campuses every school night, and staffing to support added custodial demands. We are also in the rigorous process of Healthy Verify certification to ensure the safe and effective implementation of our intensive mitigation plan.
Thank you to our teachers and staff for their flexibility and dedication in getting us to this point, and to our families for entrusting us with the care of their children. On behalf of our Governing Board and award-winning staff, I sincerely thank you for choosing Litchfield Elementary School District.
