December 11, 2020 Update
Posted on 12/11/2020

Dear Parents, Guardians, and East Granby Public Schools Staff,

I hope you are all well as we approach mid-December. An update on our school status: I continue to meet weekly, often several times weekly, with the Farmington Valley Health District (FVHD) and area superintendents to discuss and review COVID-19 data. The recommendation from the health department continues to support our current model of in-school learning. For the week of December 14-18, we will be in-person, with the exception of remote Wednesday on December 16th.

For the week of December 21, 22, and 23rd, we will temporarily transition to full remote learning. Please remember that December 23rd is already a remote early dismissal day. This shift is being made in conjunction with multiple school districts in our area to help alleviate recent and anticipated staffing challenges during the shortened week, limit contact tracing, and reduce the need to quarantine prior to the well deserved winter recess. Building principals will communicate details around this temporary transition to remote learning early next week. At this time, the East Granby Public Schools, along with the Farmington Valley School Districts, intend to resume with the full in-person learning model after the winter break on Monday, January 4, 2021, keeping remote Wednesday in place. We will continue to consult with the Farmington Valley Health District throughout the winter break. 

We have added aCOVID-19 Dashboard to our COVID-19 resource page: http://eastgranby.ss11.sharpschool.com/for_parents/covid-19_information_resources/c_o_v_i_d-19_dashboard

The dashboard notes the frequency of incidents by week that require individuals to isolate or quarantine.

The CT Department of Public Health website now includes information on vaccinations. That link is on our COVID-19 webpage or can be accessed here: https://portal.ct.gov/Coronavirus/COVID-19-Vaccinations

The Farmington Valley Health District thanks our families and staff for informing them immediately of positive and probable cases, allowing us to quickly begin contract tracing. Thank you always for your continued support.

Best,

Missy Bavaro-Grande, Superintendent of Schools
