UPDATE: On Monday, October 19, 2020 all students in K-2 were given the opportunity to move to 4-day in-person learning on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Wednesday’s will continue to be remote learning for all students PK-12. 

The Trumbull Public Schools are currently using the Hybrid Model. The Trumbull Public Schools recognizes the importance of increasing student “face-to-face” time with teachers. To that end, we are currently working on a plan to bring our youngest learners back to school more frequently. We look forward to sharing this plan in the near future.

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

Given the current metrics from the DPH the Trumbull Public Schools are open under Plan B, our hybrid model. Parents may choose the remote learning option whenever the district has chosen either Plan A or Plan B. The metrics, in conjunction with our medical team, will continue to drive our weekly decisions on our Learning Plan.
