November 2021

Dear Families,

The weather is changing quickly with colder mornings. We want to be sure your child is prepared with coats, hats, and gloves/mittens each day. When the snow arrives, they will also need boots and snow pants. If you need any of those items please call the office and we will assist you. When we have inclement weather and school is cancelled our Superintendent of Schools, Kathy Cuddy-Egbert will let you know if we are having a remote day. Recently, your child's classroom teacher has sent information home along with a schedule for remote days. It's important to note that when we have a remote day due to inclement weather it is considered a regular school day. There are specific times that your child is expected to be online to get instruction from their classroom teacher. If you have questions regarding the remote days due to inclement weather please contact your child's classroom teacher. You also may have noticed that students are bringing home their Chromebooks each night in case of inclement weather. Please be sure your child brings the Chromebook and charger to and from school each day. We appreciate your support and help in caring for the Chromebooks. If you have any questions please feel free to call the office.


Sincerely,


Andrea Fournier

Principal
