Dear Region 6 Community,

I am writing to inform you that effective immediately, all Litchfield and Region 6 schools will be closed for at least the next two weeks.  

This closure is not an easy decision but being done out of extreme caution on containing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and in the best interest of students, staff, and public health. This is done through the recommendation and guidance of the Department of Public Health. 

As we enter this new era of school history, I wanted to share some additional information. 

Learning Opportunities

Tomorrow you will receive an email from your child’s school on education learning opportunities while school is closed. This information will also be made available on the district website. This is being provided not to replace instructional days, but give opportunity to our students while they are out of school.  Should your child need a device, please contact the school directly. 

Building Closures

During this closure, all school facilities will be closed with the exception of Central Office and school offices. There will be no public meetings, events, practices or gatherings. 

Deep Cleaning

Our custodial and facility staff will be onsite during this period to ensure a deep cleaning of all classrooms, tables, restrooms, etc. 

Meals for Students

The district is working closely with EdAdvance to provide a location for serving meals for students in need. This information will be forthcoming from David Fiorillo, CFO, once all details have been finalized. 

Future Trips, Events and Spring Sports

As much is changing and being updated, we will continue to provide you with information surrounding future trips, events, and spring sports. 

Designated Email Address

The district has established a designated email address for questions and issues around the closure or the virus. You can email covid19.questions@rsd6.org. 

This email will be actively monitored by Chris Escobar (RSD6) and Debbie Hodges (LPS) and responses will be made as possible. 

More information will follow tomorrow. 

Have a good night, 

Chris
