(WTNH) — Groton Public Schools has been working on a plan for the start of the new school year since June.
Groton Superintendent of Schools Michael Garner, PH.D. joins News 8 to discuss the school district’s preparation for a return to class.
The school district will follow a hybrid learning schedule.
The students at each school will be divided into two groups. One group will attend in-person classes while the other group will stay home. Both groups will be in school twice a week and online three times a week.
Groton schools plan to have online-only classes on Wednesdays so that the schools can be thoroughly cleaned, in addition to the several cleanings during the hybrid school day.
