HPS 2020-21 School Year Information and Updates

January 18, 2021

Dear Hamden Public Schools Families and Staff:

I hope you had a restful and healthy weekend and observance of this Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

This is just a reminder that tomorrow, Tuesday, January 19th, we will resume our hybrid programming and follow the same schedule prior to moving to full remote on November 23rd. To ensure everyone remains safe and healthy and we continue our success in mitigating Covid-19 transmission in our schools, please follow these important protocols. These actions should be taken by all staff and parents sending their children to school:

  • Please complete a health assessment each morning.
  • Please stay home if experiencing any symptoms related to Covid-19.
  • If you stay home, please call the school nurse.
  • If you are awaiting results from a Covid-19 test, please stay home and contact your school nurse.

While we will continue to monitor cases in our community and surrounding areas and be guided by our public health professionals, our ability to continue providing necessary in-school experiences for our children will rely upon our working together and strictly following the health protocols established.

Our Vaccination Task Force will continue to meet with health officials to ensure vaccinations for staff once available. Please anticipate continued updates. If any staff member has questions regarding vaccines, please consult with your health provider as soon as possible.

Be well,

Jody Ian Goeler

Superintendent
