Granby Schools to transition to full reopening

Students will be provided two masks and a pouch for storage when they return to school.

Granby Public Schools will start the school year on Sept. 1, 2020, using a hybrid model as a transition to a full reopening. This will allow the implementation of proactive health and safety protocols. This transitional entry is a 10- to 13-day period during which students will utilize their “maroon” or “gold” designation to attend school in-person on an every-other-day schedule.  A reduced number of students will be in the building each day while routines and relationships are being established.   

Students with last names starting A–K will be assigned to the maroon group and students with last names L–Z will be assigned to the gold group.  Families living in the same household with different last names will be scheduled together.  On days when students are not in-person they will have daily expectations for engagement and academics.

Pre-Kindergarten students will follow the Monday-Thursday schedules for morning or afternoon sessions as assigned.  In partnership with the Granby YMCA, a program has been created for families who are in need of childcare during this transitional entry.  

Students and staff will be required to wear face coverings while in the school building. Parents cannot opt students out of wearing masks but some students will not be able to wear masks for documented medical reasons. Exceptions are PE, lunch, select music classes, mask breaks when socially distanced, teachers when greater than six feet away, and staff in offices alone.

Full reopening dates are as follows:

Kelly Lane Primary School – Wednesday, Sept. 16

Wells Road Intermediate School – Wednesday, Sept. 16

Granby Memorial Middle School – Monday, Sept. 21

Granby Memorial High School – Monday, Sept. 21
