Ridgefield Continuing Education follows the health, safety, mask, and social distancing policies currently in effect for Ridgefield Public Schools. These policies are subject to change as directives and advice change from the State of Connecticut. Anyone who prefers to wear a mask under any circumstance should feel comfortable doing so and we thank you! Unvaccinated participants must wear a mask in all in person classes, whether indoors or outdoors. This is to maintain the safety and health of our teachers and students.

Class sizes whether on Zoom or in person are limited in order to provide Q & A and a personalized experience. The online classes offer instructor continuity for future in person classes AND some classes will remain on Zoom.
