Dear Sayles School families and Sprague community members:

Yesterday, Governor Lamont issued Executive Order 14.  This Executive Order extends nine previous executive mandates, including the mandate for face masks in all Connecticut schools.  All students, staff and visitors to Sayles School will continue to be required to wear a face mask.

As of now, the governor’s Executive Order will be in place through February 15, 2022.  I appreciate your cooperation in this matter.  Working together, we can keep our students and community safe.

Sincerely,

William Hull,
Superintendent of Schools

Opening of the 2021/22 School Year:

We are excited about the start of a new school year.  Working together we can help to ensure the safety of our children and staff at Sayles School.  In response to the COVID-19 virus, Sayles School is following the mandates of the State of Connecticut as well as the federal government along with guidance from both the Connecticut State Department of Education and the Connecticut Department of Public Health.  Below is a summary of the mandates and guidance:

  • Masks are required for all students, staff and visitors in school.

  • Masks are required for anyone riding a school bus.  Please have your child wear the mask at their bus stop.

  • Masks are not mandated for outside recess.

  • Vaccinated students and staff no longer need to quarantine if they are exposed to COVID-19, as long as they are asymptomatic.

  • Students and staff will maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance in classroom, when feasible with available space.

  • Students and staff who have been exposed to COVID-19 at school and maintained 3 feet of physical distance no longer have to quarantine, as long as they remain asymptomatic and have used masks correctly.

  • Non-essential visitors and meetings with outside individuals will occur after student school hours.

  • Remote learning is no longer allowed in Connecticut.  (There are extremely limited exceptions.)

As conditions change, we will be updating our our strategies in response to COVID-19.

Please note that bus schedules are posted on the school’s website www.saylesschool.org and in the front window of the entrance of the school.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly or at 860-822-8264 ext. 107.   Thank in advance for your help and cooperation.

Sincerely,

William Hull,
Superintendent of Schools
