New Haven Schools announced a plan to go back to in-person learning, five days a week, starting in August. Masks will be required with scheduled breaks throughout the day.

The State of Connecticut no longer requires districts to offer the stay-at-home option, so New Haven is not offering remote learning for the 2021-22 school year. Masks indoors and on school buses are a state requirement as of now.

The district will require social distancing, contact tracing and continual cleaning.

The schools will offer enrichment blocks for literacy and math to help boost academics.
