Safely Returning to School - Hamden & New Haven
We are in full support of the Hamden and New Haven Schools students safely returning to in-person learning, as long as recommendations and protocols from the Centers of Disease Control are strictly followed and teacher safety is made a strict priority. We recommend that teachers and admin staff are sent to the front of the line in CT to be vaccinated for those who want to receive the vaccination. Until community wide herd immunity is reached, we recommend following the CDC's testing protocol, mask wearing and social distancing to ensure the safety of teachers and students.
