Welcoming our students back into our buildings during a pandemic is a complex task that requires rethinking how we operate on all levels. Our plan to return to school is student-centered, focused on the social-emotional and physical health and safety of our students and staff and designed to keep our students learning at a high level. Colchester’s Reopening Plan was a group effort guided by our own team of teachers, support staff and administrators, local and state health officials, and recommendations issued by the Vermont Agency of Education.
