Somerset Elementary is pleased to offer more educational continuity now that the standard operating procedures allow asymptomatic close contacts to remain in school. With the reduction in quarantining, and the new omicron variant, we are concerned about and monitoring the spread of the virus. We are depending on the entire school community to keep each other safe and minimize this spread:

  1. All students and staff MUST prescreen for symptoms daily and should be symptom free without the mitigating effects of Tylenol or any other medications.
  2. All students and staff are expected to wear masks that fit properly over the nose and mouth when inside the building. Individuals who refuse to wear masks may be sent home.
  3. Individuals testing positive for COVID must quarantine for 5 days or longer if symptoms are still present.
  4. Families are asked to keep contacts updated and have a plan for their child if he/she becomes sick at school and needs to be sent home.


The after school child care facility at the old St Albans School (now the St Albans Community Center) has been up and running for the entire month of January. Somerset Elementary sends a bus over every day to make sure that our students have door to door service and parents can carry on at work knowing that their children have eyes on supervision and educational opportunities at a licensed, fully certified child care facility.

Your kids will love the Champions program because they'll......

  • Get social time with friends
  • Enjoy freedom and independence to learn the way they choose
  • Feel supported by teachers who foster their curiosity and support them through challenges
  • Be nourished with healthy snacks
  • Finish homework and get help with school projects
