Three Instructional Scenarios

Full Instruction Arrow

At this time, all Connecticut schools have been directed to return to school full-time, five days a week. This is subject to change based on the trajectory of COVID-19 cases in Connecticut. Therefore, districts have been asked to plan for the following three scenarios: 

One  Full-Time In-Person Instruction: schools are open five days a week for all students, and Distance Learning is offered as an option.
Hybrid Model: combines both in-person and distance learning; only a percentage of students attend in-person classes at a time on a limited number of days per week; instruction is supplemented with distance learning. 
Full-Time Distance Learning: schools are closed; all students learn from home; blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning.

Public health data that is needed to make proper decisions regarding opening and closing schools remains highly fluid. In the event of a school closure, South Windsor Public Schools will provide as much advance notice to families as possible. However, in the interest of public health, school closure decisions may need to be made with little notice. Depending on the situation, the Superintendent may close the whole district or individual schools, as advised by the state or local health department.

Families will be notified of school closures or the transition to a new model of instruction by the Superintendent of Schools through SchoolMessenger. Closings will also be posted on all district websites, as well as local television and radio outlets.
