Stamford Schools Open Doors to Community for Tours

Parents, this is for you. Youth program directors, heads of family agencies, real estate agents and other community members, you may join, too, if you wish.

Stamford Public Schools is throwing its doors open, and the district wants you to come in and take a look at how your children are being educated. The welcoming "Tour Your Schools Day" will be offered Friday, Jan. 28.

Every school will offer a morning and afternoon presentation. At K.T. Murphy School, activities for parents will include a PowerPoint presentation, said Principal Barbara Friedman, adding that the event was still being planned. Although a tour of the school will be among the offerings, sitting in on your child's individual classroom probably won't, she said. But parents "are always welcome to come back," said Friedman. Many parents of children who are entering kindergarten in the fall use it to become acquainted with the school, she said.

"I think it's important to come into the school sometimes," Friedman said. "You hear in the community about negative and positive things in the schools. It's good to come and see for yourself."

Presentations and tours at KT Murphy and other elementary schools will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 2 p.m. At middle and high schools, planned events will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. and 1 to 1:45 p.m. All visitors will be checked in and are asked to bring a photo ID.

The snow date will be a week later, Friday, Feb. 4.
