BREAKING: Lamont Says Schools Staying Closed Until At Least April 20


 

On Monday, Governor Ned Lamont announced that all Connecticut schools would remain closed until at least April 20.

Originally, Lamont had ordered that schools be closed through March 27, but it has been widely accepted that the closures would extend beyond that point. The April 20 date is not definitive and Lamont could decide to extend the closures again, depending on how well mitigation protocols work to stop the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus.

Cheshire schools have been closed since last Monday, and all classes have gone to online learning. Early this month, Lamont announced that the state was waving the usual requirement that students be in class 180 days of the year. The school year cannot extend beyond June.
