[pms-login] Yesterday, Governor Lamont announced that students may be able to go back to school by April 20th, but in a radio interview with CBS radio today, Lamont said that students may not be able to return until fall.
The positive cases in Connecticut remain at 415 with a reported 10 deaths.
In a statement from the Governors office, it says…
“The governor is looking at this public health crisis as potentially lasting a longer period of time than initially thought, which he said publicly before and is and is consistent with federal CDC suggestions of class cancellations for 6-8 weeks. The goal is to have frank discussions with superintendents and the education community as the situation unfolds. Gov. Lamont is telling school systems they must be prepared for a potentially unprecedented break from classes being held in schools as a result of the coronavirus to ensure students, teachers, staff, and parents are safe.”
