Dear CPS Community, This morning, Governor Lamont, made an executive decision to close school for the remainder of the school year. CPS students will continue to participate in the Phase 3 Virtual Learning Plan for the remainder of the school year. The last day of Virtual Learning will be on June 15, 2020. More information regarding graduation and promotion ceremonies along with other end of year activities will be forthcoming from school principals. Thank you for all of your support during this very challenging time. We miss our students very much but understand that the governor’s decision to close school the remainder of the year was based on the safety of our students and staff. It is my sincere hope that your families are healthy and safe. Dr. Enza Macri Superintendent Cromwell Public Schools
Dear CPS Community, I hope you are all staying healthy and safe. As we approach the end of week one of Cromwell’s Phase II Virtual Learning Plan, it is important that we keep the mental health and well-being of our students, educators and families at the forefront of all of our decisions. In a couple of weeks, we will administer a survey to all stakeholders to gather information regarding how we can continue to support our students and families as we make plans to move forward. Below are updates that are available at this time: 1. Report cards for quarter 3 at CMS and CHS will go out on April 22nd. Grades closed on March 13th but students have until April 9th to turn in any outstanding assignments. 2. April Break will take place from 4/10 to 4/17. Although students and teachers will be on vacation, teachers will provide optional assignments for those students that want to remain engaged in their academics. Teachers will be available for daily virtual instruction on Monday, April 20th. We are following the original school calendar. 3. Reminder that any feedback about the Virtual Learning Plan and/or district operations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org; we will send out weekly parent/community updates each Wednesday that school is in session. 4. Grab and Go meals will be available at ECS next week. Meals will continue to be disseminated on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 10:00-12:00 pm. 5. Schools are in the process of forming committees to brainstorm graduation/promotion alternatives for the end of the year. We will send out more details as we have them. Please enjoy the Holiday weekend and take good care. Sincerely, Enza

Dear CPS Community, We are approaching the end of the original two weeks closure period and as the seriousness of the situation continues, we find ourselves away from the traditional classroom for longer. We will be phasing out our Interim Learning Opportunities and starting on Monday, April 6, 2020 we will be implementing a plan with more structure and accountability. In these uncertain times, it has been necessary for us to balance the most urgent needs of the families and student academics. As this will be the new normal for the near future, we are going to begin to normalize virtual learning as well. We appreciate your patience as our teachers are expected to instruct in a manner that they have never done before and are learning virtually as well. A letter will go out to families soon with further information as to how Cromwell Public Schools will be moving forward. In the meantime, we are also still waiting for guidance from the Commissioner of Education regarding many of these matters. Please feel free to contact the Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Keri MacLean, at email@example.com so that she can provide assistance if you should need it. Please be well. Thank you, Enza Enza Macri, Ed.D. Superintendent Cromwell Public Schools
