Northwest Village School opened on August 31 in a hybrid model. We have started the new school year with a lot of excitement, and we will continue slowly and safely, building into an eventual full return, with everyone’s safety in mind, preparing and planning to implement new protocols and guidelines set forth by the Connecticut Department of Health, Connecticut Department of Education, and the CDC. We will continue to keep you posted as our plans evolve. Our back-to-school plans can be accessed in English (click here) and Spanish (click here). In the event school is closed for any reason, at any point throughout the 2020-2021 school year, including inclement weather, we will continue with our Virtual Learning Program for our students.
