Litchfield School District

I am writing today to announce that we are shifting Griffin Memorial School to whole school remote learning effective Thursday, October 15th. The school will remain in remote instruction mode for the remainder of this week and all of next week with an anticipated reopening date of Monday, October 26th. This decision has not been made lightly. After thorough discussion and review of the entire situation, the decision was made based on the number of positive COVID-19 cases at the school and the impact of required quarantining on our staff. At this time we do not anticipate changing the instructional model at Litchfield Middle School nor Campbell High School. If any family is impacted by the GMS closure and needs an older student (LMS or CHS) to help with supervision at home, please contact the school principal to make arrangements for a temporary shift to remote learning. I want to thank everyone for staying strong and supporting our efforts to deliver in person instruction. With the cases increasing in the area and particularly at GMS, we hope this closure is temporary and helpful. Please be alert for additional messaging from GMS Principal Mitchell on how we will implement remote instruction for the next 7 school days.

Be well,

Mike Jette, Superintendent of Schools
