Deadline is Tomorrow

The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) is currently calling for schools to reopen at full capacity in the fall, while also asking districts to develop plans for hybrid learning (a combination of in-person and distance) and full-time distance learning.

As part of the planning for 2020-21, the District is seeking family input on a variety of topics related to reopening Stamford Public Schools.

Please complete the Stamford Public Schools Reopening Survey . The last day to respond is tomorrow - Friday, July 24. 

The survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete and covers topics including teaching and learning, transportation, childcare, food service, transportation, and how comfortable families will feel sending their students back into schools this fall.
Summer Reading Assignments for Grades 1-5

Stillmeadow students entering grades 1-5 in the fall are expected to complete a summer reading assignment. The assigned books for each grade level are available to borrow from the ​Ferguson Library​ (all branches) or may be purchased at ​Barnes & Noble​ or ​Amazon​.

Students are expected to turn in their reading assignments when school begins in the fall. Projects will be reviewed by classroom teachers or Mrs. Nathanson.
Kindergarten Orientation:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is unlikely that Stamford Public Schools will host its traditional Kindergarten Orientation prior to the first day of school.

To help incoming Kindergarten Students and their families learn more about Stillmeadow, the staff and administration have prepared a special video and slideshow for home viewing.

Families with any questions about Kindergarten or the material presented in the video and slideshow should contact the Stillmeadow Main Office at 203.977.4507.
