The Trumbull Public Schools are committed to the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We recognize that our public schools play a vital role in supporting our students and our parents. The opportunities for academic growth that we provide are essential. However, the opportunities for social and emotional growth are equally important at this time. For these reasons we will do our best to open schools and keep them open.
COVID-19 is a health emergency and therefore we will take guidance from experts in the field of health, especially experts of infectious disease. The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) developed a set of primary and secondary metrics adapted from the Harvard Global Institute and supplemented with existing DPH measures. These metrics will be reviewed weekly by the Superintendent of Schools, Director of Nursing, Medical Advisor and the DPH to guide the decision making process as it relates directly to our learning plan. You may find the most recent indicator metrics here.
The Trumbull Public Schools has developed three models for teaching and learning in 20-21:
Plan A – In-School, Traditional Learning
Plan B – Hybrid Setting
Plan C – Remote/Distance Learning
