    Weekly Updates
  • Covid-19 Case- Westbrook High School

    April 1, 2021

    Dear Parents, Guardians, Staff, and Community Members,

    We received notification that one individual at Westbrook High School has tested positive for Covid-19. This individual was last present in-person on Wednesday, March 31st.

    A small number of students at the high school will need to quarantine as a result of this case.

    All close contacts have been identified and contacted with instructions to quarantine per CDC and CT DPH guidelines. 

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

    Covid Info
  • Remote Learning Day on Monday, April 5th

    Dear Parents, Guardians, Staff, and Community Members,

    More than 65 staff members, including our bus drivers and substitute teachers are scheduled to receive their 2nd dose of the Moderna vaccine this Saturday.  After discussions with our local health director and the well publicized experiences of many school districts in the state, we are concerned about staffing capacity on Monday, April 5th.

    A last minute call on Monday would be a significant disruption and hardship for many of our families.

    While we hope that our staff do not feel unwell after the 2nd dose, the reality is that many of them will not feel well this weekend and on Monday. 

    In anticipation of staffing capacity issues for our schools and buses, all schools will operate in Remote Learning mode on Monday, April 5th. Teachers have been asked to prepare asynchronous lessons (a combination of direct instruction and independent work) and lesson plans for Monday in the event they are unable to teach remotely.  

    As always, thank you for your flexibility, understanding, and continued support.

    We all look forward to the time when we no longer need to message out anything related to Covid-19.

    Kristina J. Martineau, Ed.D.
