Greetings PK Families,

What a week it has been at Stowe Early Learning Center! We had picture day in the middle of the week AND our first safety drill of the year this afternoon!

Teachers spent time preparing kids for what to do and where to go when the alarm sounded. For a building with over 250 kids ages 0-5, we were able to exit the building and account for everyone in 3 minutes and 35 seconds minutes from start to finish! That is quite impressive!

I had the pleasure of going into all classrooms at Stowe this week! Your little ones are hard at work exploring their classrooms/materials, playing with new friends, and learning the routines of the PK day.

A few reminders:

  • Remain vigilant of your surroundings when driving through our parking lots. Our clientele are nearly 100% under or around 3 feet tall and it can be hard to see them!

  • The weather is getting cooler, but our classrooms can get sunny and warm. Layers are great for Fall weather!

  • Nurse Jen will need proof of flu vaccination by December 22, 2022. You can email it to her jmaier@enfieldschools.org, send in a hard copy, fax it (860) 253-0096!

  • Health and safety are top priorities and I thank you for doing your part!

Open House

Thursday, Sep. 29th, 5:30-7pm

117 Post Office Road

Enfield, CT

Stowe Early Learning Center invites you to attend our Open House on Thursday September 29, 2022! We will have you enter through your classroom door to support traffic flow in our parking lots and the halls. Don't worry, you will make it through the school and see all of the places your Eaglet goes during the day! In the spirit of keeping SELC healthy and in compliance with our current masking policy, we ask that attendees be masked. We encourage you to bring your child so they can show you around their classroom! There will be no formal presentations so feel free to stop in as your schedule allows!

Health Trend Update From Nurse Jen

We have seen an uptick in the Hand, Foot, and Mouth virus this week at SELC. Nurse Jen has provided the tip sheet below to keep you informed of what to look for and when to keep your child home. Please reach out to her with any questions (860) 763-8858.
