COVID-19 Update and General Information
In conjunction with the New Canaan Health Department and medical advisors, New Canaan Public Schools is taking precautionary measures regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and announces that school buildings will be closed beginning March 12, 2020. All NCPS pre-school and afterschool events and programs as well as athletic events are being suspended at this time. The district has made e-learning preparations, and teachers are starting these programs remotely with their students beginning Friday, March 13, 2020.
