All Windham Public Schools, including C. H. Barrows STEM Academy, are going to have an early dismissal tomorrow, Friday, August 27. Early dismissal times, which can be found on our website (https://5il.co/t2bd), are as follows: Windham High School – 11:20am Windham Middle School – 11:40am C. H. Barrows STEM Academy – 12:00pm Sweeney, North Windham, Natchaug, & Windham Center Schools – 12:30 Windham Early Childhood Center – 12:45 We appreciate those families who understand the need to call these early dismissals to ensure safety when we are dealing with excessive heat and a mask mandate in both our classrooms and on our school buses. Looking ahead at the forecast, things should cool off nicely as we end August and start off the month of September.
LAST NIGHT’S UPDATE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: This is Dr. Tracy Youngberg, Superintendent of Schools, calling to welcome your children back to school on Thursday, August 26, our first full day together. We are very excited that all of our students will be back in person this school year. I want to remind everyone that masks are mandated in our schools and offices per the Governor’s Executive Order. In addition to the mask mandate, we will continue to follow the recommended mitigation strategies designed to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 in our schools. The Department of Public Health continues to view vaccination as the number one prevention strategy. Vaccinations, as you know, are available to anyone 12 years and older. Please visit the district’s website for specific details shared with you in video format on how we will work to keep our schools in the Wellness Zone: www.windhamps.org/page/reopening-covid Video in English: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbeT7yAV_is Video in Spanish: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWNamN1Rlqc Have a great night everyone, and we will see you for the first day of school on Thursday, August 26.
