Dear Parents and Guardians,
The photo above made me laugh out loud when I received it from a staff member who was outside at recess. It reminds me of how resilient our students are, their sense of humor, and how seriously they take their mask wearing! Many of our students have started wearing their masks outside for recess, because it keeps their face warm. But that means the mask is soaking wet when they come in. Please pack an extra mask in your child’s backpack (along with snow pants, hat, gloves) so kids can fully participate in recess activities in the snow.
Reminder: We will have our Annual Title I Parent Night as a VIRTUAL meeting, this Thursday, 12/9, at 6:30. Here’s the Link to join the meeting. Through a quick Google Slide presentation, I will explain how we receive this federal Title I funding and how we’ve spent this grant money so far. Parents are encouraged to share their opinions, ask questions, and take part in the decision making process in how we utilize these funds.
At that meeting we will also review the Title I School/Caregiver/Student Compact. Before the meeting, I’d like to get some parent feedback on the elements of the compact that explain the co-responsibility in educating our community’s children. Please take the SURVEY here to offer feedback on the School/Caregiver/Student Compact. Thank you for your involvement.
Hope to “see” you virtually on Thursday night.

- 2 months after getting the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
- 6 months after the second Pfizer or Moderna dose
If you were vaccinated at a state site, make your booster appointment here.
If you were vaccinated at a pharmacy, you can get a booster one of a few ways:
- Many pharmacies: including but not limited to Morrisville Kinney (Moderna, Pfizer, and pediatric Pfizer), CVS (Pfizer), Hannaford (Moderna). Appointments required and you must bring your vaccine card.
