We appreciate Governor Lamont’s response to the state’s ongoing public health emergency. The first priority must always be to protect the health and safety of our students, teachers, and communities. We support the governor and the medical professionals who say keeping schools closed will help lessen the strain on our hospitals, and preserve more lives. That requires all of us to follow safety procedures, make sacrifices, and obey social distancing guidelines. Keeping schools closed until at least May 20, is just one of many actions required to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
Our dedicated, passionate teachers will continue engaging students through distance learning, using their creativity and expertise to help students learn and thrive.
