News & Announcements
- I want to say a HUGE thank you to all who donated to the 6th grade's food drive. They well surpassed their goal of collecting 125 items (well over 250 items at last count with more still coming in) and look forward to helping others in the community with these donations. Thank you all for supporting their project...and our neighbors!
- Report cards will be sent home with students this afternoon. They will also be bringing home a slip indicating the time for your scheduled parent/teacher conference. Please contact the front office if you do not receive these items. Please also reach out to reschedule if you are unable to keep the assigned conference time.
- Some of you have asked what the announcement regarding the lifting of the statewide mask mandate means for our district. At this moment, there is no change to the requirement as all towns in the district still currently have an indoor mask mandate in place. The district's COVID task force will be meeting with FRCOG and the local boards of health to discuss if/when that mandate will be lifted for our district. My understanding at this time is that even if it is lifted in school, masks will still be required on the bus, as that is a federal mandate regarding public transportation. I would anticipate that if/when changes are made to our district's requirements, the superintendent will share that information with everyone.
- Thank you for all your feedback about our new snack program. As I mentioned when I sent out the survey, because this was a new program, I wanted to hear from families how it was working and what, if any, adjustments may need to be made. I was pleased to see that 80% of you have found it to be helpful to your family. That was one of our major goals with it. Many of you expressed how much you appreciated not having to think about packing a snack for your child on a busy morning, the cost savings for your family, and how much your children were enjoying trying new things. We are pleased to share that we will continue providing a snack to all children for the remainder of the school year, so you can continue to have one less thing to worry about. We encourage all students to continue to try them and discover new foods. We also recognize that some students have not been enjoying them and therefore, after break, we will allow students to bring a snack from home to eat if they do not like the school snack being offered. It is certainly not required to send a snack for your child as we will continue to provide snacks at school. If you choose to send something in, we ask that students bring only one snack item and that it be a healthy snack such as a piece of fruit, some vegetables, a yogurt, a cheese stick, etc.
- Have a wonderful break!
