We at SEPTA are with you

Our families, like yours, are adjusting to distance learning.  We invite you to like us on Facebook where we are sharing daily information.

In this unprecedented time, we at SEPTA are following all Federal, State and district recommendations and conversations in terms of health and wellness as well as the changing educational landscape in this time of distance learning. We recommend families read all communications from town and district bodies to obtain the most up to date information. We are processing information at the same time as you are as parents and we will post updates and recommendations as soon as we can!

Federal Education Landscape

The CT and US Department of Education are considering modified guidance that may loosen certain time lines and requirements under IDEA. Details and information is continuously evolving.

State organizations like PATH (http://pathct.org/ ) and SEEKCT (https://seekct.com/) are closely monitoring this situation and sharing up to date information about actions and recommendations across the state and the country.

We highly recommend following these organizations for information, ideas, resources and to find supports you may be looking for during this difficult time
