Schools Closing - Information for Parents
March 13, 2020

Dear Newtown Staff and Families,

I wanted to express my deep gratitude for your efforts and support over the last two weeks, including the work to prepare supplemental materials and a potential distance learning model.  No district, town, or state has a playbook for these kinds of emergencies, especially as it impacts students and learning.  However, more importantly, we need to make decisions with an abundance of care and precaution. 

With the above in mind, Newtown Public Schools will be closed for staff and students until further notice beginning Monday, March 16th. 

This decision was made with the community’s best interests in mind and in collaboration with our local health director.  While Newtown has not currently identified any known cases or connections, we are closing to ensure social distancing, ongoing assessment of the situation as it impacts Newtown, and continued sanitization of our schools and offices.
