Principal's Update

March 27, 2020

Dear Barnard Families,

As we come to the close of our second week of distance learning, I can honestly say that everyone on the Henry Barnard staff misses working with your children face to face. Please know that we are thinking of you and our students as we all work to adjust to this new situation we’ve found ourselves living in. Below, you will find a link to the first issue of our newsletter, The Big Cat Currier: Your Source for Barnard News, Right Meow! Our aim is to share a new issue with you weekly until we return to the building.

Enjoy your weekend!

Proclamation for the Town of Enfield-Ringing of the Bells

WHEREAS, on March 10, 2020, the Governor of the State of Connecticut declared a public health emergency and civil preparedness emergency for the State of Connecticut; and

WHEREAS, on March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared a national emergency to combat the coronavirus that is currently infecting the population of the United States; and

WHEREAS, on March 12, 2020 the Town Manager of Enfield declared a civil preparedness emergency as a result of the clear and present risk to the public health posed by the rapid proliferation of COVID-19; and

WHEREAS, in response to the issuance of these declarations and the closing of schools, senior centers, libraries and other places of social interaction, the population is maintaining a reasonable social distance from one another and is generally confining itself to its homes.

NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY PROCLAIMED AND ORDERED, that during the existence of said emergency all citizens of Enfield shall, between the hour of 8:00 pm and 8:02 pm, joyously sound a bell, chime, cymbal, carillon, gong, ringer, tocsin, or similar device as a symbol of the community of our citizens and a reminder to all that although the community may be physically separated our citizens remain united in their support for one another and dedicated to overcoming the present peril; and

IT IS FURTHER PROCLAIMED AND ORDERED, that all houses of worship, if so equipped, shall sound their bells at the same time and that any local regulation, law or ordinance relating to unreasonable noise or disturbance shall be null and void and be deemed to have been waived and therefore unenforceable between the hours of 8:00 pm and 8:02 pm for as long as said emergency exists.
