Dear New Fairfield Students and Families, I am writing to notify you of a change to the New Fairfield Public Schools 2022-2023 district calendar, as it relates to the New Year’s Day holiday. NFPS will now be closed on Monday, January 2, 2023, in accordance with state law. Schools will be back in session on Tuesday, January 3 following the break. While this issue was not flagged when the calendar was originally developed, we are obligated to make this modification in accordance with state statute. Whenever New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday, the legal holiday must be observed on Monday. Since we will not be in school on January 2, this will likely extend the school year by one day with the last scheduled day for students and staff becoming June 15, 2023. The BOE will discuss how the day will be made up at their December 15 regular meeting. Thank you for your flexibility.

For your planning purposes, afternoon conferences have been rescheduled to next Thursday, December 8. We will have an early dismissal for grades K-8 only on December 8. The high school schedule will remain unchanged. The schools will follow up with additional details regarding conferences. Thank you.
