MILFORD — The superintendent of the city’s public schools will provide an update Thursday on how the return to the classrooms has gone so far.

Superintendent Anna Cutaia will hold a news conference at 8:15 a.m. Thursday at Pumpkin Delight Elementary School.

The superintendent’s office has declined to comment about the district’s back-to-school plans. Officials said no one has been available to provide information until Thursday’s news conference.

On July 24, the Milford Public Schools District submitted its reopening plan for the 2020-21 academic year to the state Department of Education.

Ninety-nine percent of the faculty at Milford Public Schools have returned in a teaching capacity.

Approximately 82 percent of the 5,500 students returned to school in-person, with roughly 18 percent participating in distance learning, according to the district.

The state Department of Education approved the reopening plan, which outlined criteria for social distancing, cleaning in the buildings and face mask requirements per state guidelines. Four hybrid models were created and will be used if there’s an increase in COVID-19 cases.
