Stratford Public Schools announced that it's planning to have elementary students back in school four days a week, an increase from the previous two days a week.
Superintendent Dr. Janet Robinson said during a Board of Education meeting Monday night that if she could have, she would have made this move already. The district says the four-day schedule will begin Nov. 16.
During the meeting, teachers and parents advocated to keep the hybrid learning model.
School officials say a total of four students have tested positive for COVID-19 in the district. Robinson says if anything, school buildings are most controlled and therefore the safest place a student can be.
Parents will still be able to opt for full distance learning. Robinson says the district will be watching COVID-19 metrics carefully.
She says the district is still working on plans to get middle and high school students more time in the classroom.
