Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Superintendent to Families

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that is spreading across the United States and the world. The general risk of infection remains low and our first priority, as always, is the health and safety of our children, and our community. We continue to monitor this situation very closely and we are in daily contact with the West Hartford-Bloomfield Health District and health officials for the State of Connecticut. We will continue to update this site as new information is received. 

Our custodial staff has been and will continue to provide extra cleaning of frequently touched surfaces in our schools. We ask that you discuss these precautionary steps with your child(ren) as well:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then through the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
