Dear SES Families ~

We are happy to announce that our Friday Program is set to begin on Friday, January 14th. Please stay tuned for additional details as we get closer to the exciting start of this program. We are lucky to live in a community that supports our students. Please remember that we are not allowing any dismissal changes on Friday Program days.

Tomorrow is forecasted to be the coldest day of the year. Please be sure to send your child with extra layers, snow pants, hats, mittens, neckwarmers, and all the protection you have. We do like to get children outside, even when it is cold.

As you have all heard, the Covid protocols are once again changing. Until we have official notice, we will continue with the protocols currently in place. You can help us by sending your child to school with high quality medical masks that are designed for children. Please don’t worry if you can’t find any, as the district is in the process of ordering additional masks. Please also remember to keep your children home when they are sick.

If there is anything that we can do to support you and your family, don’t ever hesitate to reach out. We are happy to help.

Stay well,
Nina Slade

Hello SES Parents/Guardians,

I hope you and yours are safe and well.  I am sending out this email to the parents/guardians of students at Stowe Elementary School (SES). I am providing a link below to a confidential google form. Its purpose is to collect information/permission regarding test-to-stay and collect proof of COVID-19 Vaccinations along with a place to provide feedback, comments, questions if necessary. I would appreciate your participation in completing the short survey.

Please reach out if you have any questions regarding the form.

  In-school vaccination clinics will be held at SES as follows: Stowe Elementary Dose 1 Date – 01/11/2022 (TOMORROW) Stowe Elementary Dose 2 Date – 02/01/2022  
Information on how to register for these, as well as dates of other local in-school clinics, can be found on the VDH site or by calling the Covid Call Center at 802-863-7240.   Pfizer Boosters will be available for families, staff and middle school and high school students on Tuesday, 1/11, from 9:00 to 2:45. The VDH will be running this clinic with an entrance in the back of our school cafeteria. The VDH requests you sign up, but walk-ins are definitely accepted as well. There are enough appointment slots available for these walk-ins.   Process is: sign in, a quick intake and then vaccination. This all takes between 15-25 minutes. It is most helpful if you bring your vaccination card, but the staff have the ability to look this info up on the computer.   This is a Pfizer booster.  You may receive this booster if you were double vaccinated with a Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccination. (Okay to mix these with a Pfizer booster injection). You are eligible to receive this booster if you are 6 months out from your 2nd Moderna vaccine; 5 months out from your 2nd Pfizer vaccine and 2 months out from your J&J 2nd vaccine. It is strongly encouraged that parents come with their child but we will have a staff member available to chaperone these students. Snacks and distractions will be provided for students.
  

As many of you know, this year we are hosting our Community Meetings on Friday in the gymnasium at 8:30 a.m. Parents of children who are presenting, telling jokes or doing a special activity are invited to the gym for an in-person presentation of Community Meeting. We live stream the meeting in classrooms. Our next get together will be this Friday, January 14, 2022, featuring Dana LaClair, our Music Teacher, and “Guess Who” will be hosted by Jenny Harper’s fourth grade class.

SES / 6 Day Rotating Schedule ~ What does this mean? This year we have a 6 day Unified Arts rotating schedule. It will be important to know what day it is on the schedule so that your child/ren will have the important materials and supplies needed for their Unified Arts classes. We are implementing this schedule so that we have no more lost days and classes. Classroom teachers will be messaging about what this will look like on a daily basis.  The schedule for the upcoming two weeks is as follows:

Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4Day 5Day 6
   1/10/221/11/221/12/22
1/13/221/14/221/18/221/19/221/20/221/21/22

Adaptive Cross Country Ski Open House

 Looking for something new to do on a Sunday in January? Join Green Mountain Adaptive Sports (GMAS), on Sunday, January 23, 2022 from 1:30pm to 4pm for an afternoon of fun in the snow at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center (COC) in Craftsbury Common.

This event is free and is targeted at Vermont youth and adults with disabilities. Present will be trained ski instructors from the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, and other professionals serving individuals with disabilities to provide instructions, and support as needed. Home made cookies and hot cocoa will be served. This GMAS get together in partnership with COC offers an opportunity to take a trip to visit the beautiful Nordic Center, borrow some equipment to try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, or simply to observe other skiers zoom around the training area.

Green Mountain Adaptive Sports is in the process of developing a partnership with Craftsbury Outdoor Center and other centers in Lamoille County to offer Adaptive Nordic Skiing for the 2021-22 season. The main goal of the event is to introduce individuals with disabilities to the sport of Nordic Skiing, as well as to gage desire for adaptive Nordic skiing in the area. To read more or sign up for the program, click here.

We hope to see you at the event. All participants MUST pre-register using this online form by January 20th. Please provide us with some information about the individual with the disability so we can make sure they have a successful experience at Craftsbury. Questions? Contact pascale@greenmtnadaptive.org.
