Dear Bloomfield Community, 

As we face the unprecedented challenges of the Covid 19 Pandemic, our charge from the Connecticut State Department of Education is to reopen our schools for full-time, in-person learning. 

 In so doing, our two major priorities are to 1) ensure the safety and well-being of our students and their families, our staff members, and the community, and 2) provide a high-quality educational experience to every student in the Bloomfield Public Schools. To achieve these goals, we must plan to be flexible and nimble in responding to changes in the status of the Pandemic, and to access and apply new information as it becomes available regarding sound educational and health practices in a rapidly changing school environment. 

Our approach in this Reopening Plan is practical and appropriate for learners at each developmental stage. We have made special considerations and accommodations to account for the diversity of our youth, especially for our vulnerable populations, including those who are medically fragile or have special health care needs or disabilities, with the goal of safe return to school.

To offer greater detail regarding how we intend to achieve our goals, we have included in this Plan substantial information in such key areas as Health and Safety Practices, District Operations, Academics, Staffing and Personnel, Family and Student engagement, and Student Support Services.   Additional important information for students, families and the community is also included in this document.

I wish to thank all of our staff members who have worked so tirelessly over the past several months in planning and providing Bloomfield’s Distance Learning Program to all of our children; and to extend my deep appreciation to the individuals who have dedicated so much of their time this summer (and continue to do so) creating Bloomfield’s Plan for Reopening School in the fall. 

I am convinced that with this high level of dedication in our school system and with support from Bloomfield parents and the community, we have every reason to be optimistic that together we will achieve our goals for our children and their families.


Dr. James Thompson, Jr.

Superintendent of Schools
