I want to congratulate all of our graduates from Booth Hill, Daniels Farm, Frenchtown, Jane Ryan, Middlebrook, and Tashua Elementary Schools, Hillcrest & Madison Middle Schools, Trumbull High School and all our private schools. The Community is proud of all of you!

The following announcement is from the organizers of the Trumbull High School car procession: 

In celebration of the THS class of 2021, the graduates will participate in the “Eagle Final FlyThru!” on Sunday June 13th. Last year’s historic event is being offered to the 2021 Trumbull High School seniors.

We all wish our graduates the best, and will be decorating their path to honor them.  People who live along the route are encouraged to cheer them on as they pass and display signs to wish them well. 

All graduates are invited to meet at the Westfield Shopping Center on June 13th at 9:00 AM to caravan through Trumbull together as a class, culminating in a final sweep through the Trumbull High campus. 

The graduates will leave the Westfield Shopping Center at 10 a.m. sharp, exiting onto Madison Ave.  They will proceed to Lake Ave, Main Street, Whitney Ave, Daniels Farm Rd. entering through Hillcrest Middle School and finally through Trumbull High School.

The town has worked with the organizers and is supporting this event. The Trumbull Police will be escorting our Trumbull High School Seniors with the Trumbull Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services showing their support as well.

The route for this procession will be posted on the Town website.

Stay well and stay safe.

Thanks for listening.

  • Have filed an unemployment claim with the State of Connecticut for the week immediately prior to May 30, 2021.
  • Obtain and maintain a full-time job for a period of eight consecutive weeks prior to Dec. 31, 2021.
