Food Service during Current Closure of Schools: It is vital to us as a community that we provide emergency food service for children in need during this school closure, and it is mandatory that we do so for students receiving free- and reduced-price lunches. We have received permission from the CSDE to provide meals to any Trumbull Public Schools students who would like to pick up a grab-and-go lunch and breakfast. This is offered to all household members aged 18 and younger, as long as one child in the household is enrolled in any Trumbull Public School. Beginning Tuesday, March 17, families can come to Trumbull High School (72 Strobel Road) between 10:00 a.m. & 12:00 p.m. for curbside pickup of a free lunch for that day, and also a breakfast for the following day. Families will need to provide their child(ren)’s name(s) and will be asked to take the meals home with them. There will be no eating at the school or use of the school by students and families during this time. Meals and food preparation will meet all requirements of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. Meal distribution will be at the front entrance (Door 1) of Trumbull High School. Please look for TPS food services staff and security personnel, who will direct traffic for the curbside pickup. Beginning Tuesday, March 17, this service will be offered Monday through Friday for the duration of the closure of the Trumbull Public Schools.

The following are updates since this morning's post:
Upcoming Parent-Teacher Conferences: To minimize person-to-person interactions and traffic in our schools, parent-teacher conferences scheduled for Thurs., March 12 (Grades PreK-5) & Thurs., March 19 (Grades 6-8) will not be conducted in person. Although we had planned to conduct these conferences by telephone, unfortunately, we were informed late today that our telephone provider cannot provide sufficient capacity to cover the scheduled number of parent-teacher conferences scheduled across our schools. Nevertheless, the planned early closing schedules for Thurs., March 12 (Grades PreK-5) & Thurs., March 19 (Grades 6-8) will continue.
Grades PreK-5 (Thurs., March 12): If a parent/guardian has a scheduled conference, teachers will communicate to the parent/guardian electronically.
Grades 6-8 (Thurs., March 19): Further details will be forthcoming.

The following measures are announced by the Superintendent and Board of Education:
Building Sanitation: Custodial and maintenance personnel continue to focus on cleaning our schools thoroughly and effective, with a priority on sanitizing each building properly.
Field Trips: All field trips between March 11 & April 20 [updated 3/12] have been cancelled to ensure the safety of our students and our staff. Field trips approved for after April 20 continue to be evaluated on a daily basis by the Assistant Superintendent with input from building administrators and lead teachers. For each cancelled trip where necessary, the lead teachers and administrators will work to achieve the greatest refund possible for parents/students. For updated information related to a particular trip, please contact the lead teacher, the building principal, or the Office of the Assistant Superintendent.
Dear Parents and Staff,
In response to the latest CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) media briefing on the Coronavirus and the potential impact at the community level, we want to assure you that we are staying updated on the status in Connecticut and within our own community. First and foremost, we are following the guidance of our local health department and information being conveyed from the State of Connecticut. Communication is ongoing, and the situation is being monitored closely at the local level. The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a specific flu in a large family of viruses that causes illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV), which we experienced in 2003 and 2012. While there have been no confirmed cases in Connecticut, the State remains prepared, including supporting local communities and schools in the event of an outbreak.
