Roundup: Schools Dashboard, Stew’s Tree, More


Want to know how our schools are doing, COVID-wise?

The Westport Public Schools’ web page has overviews, schedules, plans, FAQs — all broken down by elementary, middle and high school levels — along with a “dashboard.”

It shows the number of individuals (staff and students) with positive confirmed cases, who are currently isolating. The most recent number was 37.

There’s also the number of staff and students currently quarantining, because of suspected exposure. That number: 854.

First Christmas tree of the season? Spotted yesterday at Stew Leonard’s:

Oh, wait. That’s the same story I posted back in May.

I guess it all depends on what the meaning of “Coming Soon” is.


And finally … today marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Elton John’s 5th album. How do I know this obscure fact? Well, the title was 11/17/70 …

One response to “Roundup: Schools Dashboard, Stew’s Tree, More

  1. I watched them putting up the tree at Stew’s. It’s not a real tree, but is made up of many parts, all artificial, that were attached to a big pole. I guess that because of the pandemic, it would have been too difficult to search for a large live tree and transport it back to Norwalk.
