Shelton schools are closed on Thursday due to the storm

The Shelton public schools will be closed on Thursday, Feb. 13 due to the impending snowstorm.

School Supt. Freeman Burr announced the closing at the end of a school meeting held tonight.

However, it is uncertain when the closing will be posted on the school system’s official website due to current problems with the server, Burr told people at the meeting.

Burr said it is hoped that the schools can reopen on Friday, perhaps with a delayed opening.

Schools in Shelton will be closed for a Presidents Day break for the first two days of next week — Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 17 and 18.

Next full-day K meeting rescheduled

The second informational meeting on the proposed full-day kindergarten program for Shelton that was set for Thursday, Feb. 13 has been rescheduled due to the impending snowstorm.

The meeting now will take place Thursday, Feb. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Shelton Intermediate School auditorium, 675 Constitution Blvd. North.

The first informational meeting was held tonight, Wednesday, and attended by about 150 parents.

At the sessions, school system staff and Board of Education (BOE) members will explain the advantages of offering a full-day K program. The BOE has included money for full-day kindergarten in its budget request.

The first and second meetings are expected to cover the same topics, with a PowerPoint presentation, remarks by BOE members and educators, and a question-and-answer session.
