Wallingford’s Highland School temporarily closes as staff quarantine



 

WALLINGFORD — Highland Elementary School temporarily closed Thursday due to lack of staff to provide in-person instruction, putting all students on distance learning.

Superintendent Salvatore Menzo said in a letter to parents Thursday that the K-2 school on Highland Avenue is slated to reopen Monday.

“Administration has worked tirelessly to keep students in school, but unfortunately we are no longer able to fill the open positions for staff as a result of their need to quarantine,” Menzo said.

Students can still pick up lunch each day from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Sheehan High School in the back parking lot by the cafeteria or from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at the HUBCAP on Center Street.
