SHELTON - The school district has made Tuesday a full distance learning day with more snow in the forecast.

It is expected to snow throughout the day with the most intense snowfall expected mid-morning to mid-afternoon.

“Due to the timing of tomorrow's predicted snowstorm, the Shelton public schools will observe a full distance learning day on Tuesday,” Superintendent Ken Saranich said. “At this time, schools and offices will remain open to staff.”

Saranich said the instructional staff will have access to buildings and may choose to teach from home or in their classrooms.

This will be the second consecutive day of full distance learning in the district thanks to snow. The district went from a two-hour delay to full distance learning Monday after city transportation officials required more time to clear snow from the bus lot.
