What's Happening

  • Reporting COVID-19

    Dear Families,

    We are all looking forward to a few days of downtime and rest over the next few days. As you know school will be closed on Wednesday, November 25 and will reopen on Monday, November 30. 

    In the interest of continuing to be vigilant from a public health perspective, we ask that you continue to report the following information to us throughout the Thanksgiving break:

    • The onset of COVID-19-like symptoms for any members of your household

    • Testing due to suspicion of COVID-19 for any member of your household

    • Close contact with another individual who has become positive for COVID-19

    Please email me at aroy@nceschool.org and Mrs. Foley at lfoley@nceschool.org  as soon as possible should the need arise. 

    Identification of new cases will keep us aware of any spread of the virus within our school communities and will allow us to continue to take action to keep staff, students and families as safe as possible.

    Thank you for helping us by staying in touch as needed and for following CDC recommended safety guidelines as you celebrate the holiday. On behalf of all of the North Canaan Elementary School staff, I wish you a safe, healthy and Happy Thanksgiving. We look forward to seeing our students back in school next week.
