Governor Lamont's Announcement

Governor Lamont's Announcement

Dear Community,

 

This morning we received an update that Governor Lamont had cancelled in-person classes for the balance of the 2019-2020 school year.  We also received information that the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) also cancelled the spring sports season.

 

As one faculty member shared, this news came with “relief, resignation and sadness, all at the same time.”

 

For some, the announcements may have seemed inevitable based on over 85% of the country already made similar decisions.  As an educator and parent. there is a sense of relief as we no longer await clarity for the immediate future. Overall, I join in the sadness because the year will not conclude as originally intended.

 

In the coming days, as the immediate news settles in, our thoughts will focus on how to properly celebrate our students and end of the year activities.  There are special recognitions coming for students in transition grades along with the Class of 2020.

 

As I have written too many times, we are all truly living through a unique generational moment.  We will not allow this period of time to overshadow the great work of our students, but rather we will find unique ways to be positive and congratulate achievements.  You should expect to receive further communication from your child’s school in the near future that will expand on ideas for closing out the year.

 

Stay healthy.  Stay strong.  We will keep living forward.

 

Chris
