State of Connecticut launches Screen and Stay Program
for CT School Districts

Based on the latest guidance from the State of Connecticut and State Department of Public Health, we will now participate in the Screen and Stay program that districts throughout the state are implementing.

This program is open to all students who are unvaccinated or who are partially vaccinated (started the COVID-19 vaccine series, but it is not yet 14 days after having received the final dose of vaccine) AND who can consistently wear a mask at all times while inside the school building or for whom there are other alternative mitigation strategies.

To participate in the Screen and Stay program, the parent/guardian must affirm: They have read and understand the Screen and Stay requirements, they intend to screen for symptoms at home each day before sending the student to school for 14 calendar days, and they intend to keep the student home from school and will notify the school if the student develops symptoms.

Other conditions also apply for the student to be eligible for the Screen and Stay program.
