Due to the increased number of COVID cases in the community, Groton Public Schools will shift to full distance learning next week.  This is an administrative and safety decision based on the number of students and staff that need to quarantine/isolate due to COVID-19.

As a reminder, Monday, January 18, is the Martin Luther King holiday and there is no school.  The remainder of the week starting on Tuesday, January 19, will be full distance learning.
