To Parents, Teachers, Staff Members, and the Community of East Hampton:
The State of Connecticut is offering flexibility to school districts to start the 2020-21 school year. One of the options that is strongly being considered by a number of school districts is a structured transition to a full reopening after beginning in a Hybrid schedule in which 50% of students attend two days in a row, followed by a day of synchronous distance learning, and then completing two days of self-directed distance learning. The East Hampton Public Schools will utilize this safe and measured approach to reopen our schools upon approval by the Connecticut State Department of Education. An announcement is being made today (Monday, August 3) to allow families to begin the necessary planning for the first four weeks of school beginning Tuesday, September 8 until the transition is made to full in-person learning on Monday, October 5.

East Hampton Distance Learning Information -
However, as educators who have devoted our professional lives to our students, we inherently recognize the challenge that Distance Learning puts on families. We know families are managing shifting work schedules and expectations, redesigning family life, and trying to maintain calm in the face of uncertain times. We are sensitive to the fact that providing a home learning environment for your child(ren) presents complications. We are here to work with you through these events, to respond to your questions and concerns, and to provide you with tools to make this transition more manageable.
This page will be periodically updated as we are able to offer ongoing and new supports for our students and staff.
