Dear SES Families ~

What a fabulous winter wonderland weekend! Many thanks to Rob LoForno, the professional ice carver who crafted the 2 delightful sculptures at the front entrance of SES, and to our generous PTO for sponsoring this fun activity!

Even though the temps on Friday were perfect for ice carving, the weather has simply not been cooperating with the rollout of Friday Program thus far. Great news this week, though! The forecast on Friday looks like it will be perfect for all our students that participate in outdoor activities. Just a reminder that your children should be dressed in warm layers, all items should be CLEARLY LABELED WITH THEIR NAMES, along with all equipment and any accessories, Please note, in the event of a forecast of inclement weather, we will continue to update you on any changes.

Bart Newhouse has generously offered to transport the ski & snowboard equipment for our school to the mountain every Friday. Thank you, Bart! In order to make our program run smoothly, we need your help. If you are available to assist with loading equipment at the school or unloading at the mountain at lunchtime, or the opposite at the conclusion of the day’s program (around 2:45), please enter your contact information HERE. This is an “all-hands-on-deck” moment and critical to the success of the day.

Friday morning  drop-off information: If your child is going to the mountain for Friday Program, please….

1. Pull into the bus lane near the side of the school. This is the lane that goes alongside the playground.

2. Say a quick goodbye to your child and send them on the sidewalk to the front of the school. They will enter through the front doors, as always.

3. Bring your child’s equipment to the trailer that will be located in the last row of the parking lot. Please assist as your child’s equipment is loaded. It is important that this process is executed as quickly as possible.

If your child is going to MMA or GMA and you are dropping equipment off, please do so in front of the school in order to keep the equipment totally separate from the students traveling to the mountain with the Friday Program.

If your child is going to Trapp’s, the Swimming Hole, the Arena or Topnotch, please drive straight into the front bus loop and drop your child off. We thank you for your partnership.

Moving on to a quick overview of COVID-19… The most recent COVID-19 close contact guidance from the VDH is located HERE. Please remember to monitor for symptoms. If your child at any point experiences symptoms, even if mild, they should get tested regardless of vaccination status or having COVID-19 in the past. If tested, they must remain at home until the results are received. Their primary care provider can test them at their office, or they can go to a testing site. Not everyone with COVID-19 has a fever and not everyone infected with the COVID-19 virus has symptoms. People with COVID-19 who don’t have any symptoms can spread the virus to other people. Even mild symptoms (like a headache or dry cough) could be signs of COVID-19.  If your child tests positive for COVID-19 contact Jordan Myerson (802-585-4087), and begin reaching out to close contacts in the community immediately.

Covid guidance has adjusted to community conditions and favorable attendance rates in the school environment. The Test to Stay Program in school has transitioned to at-home parental testing with antigen test kits. If there is a positive case in your child’s classroom, you will be notified and the letter you receive will explain the next steps. 

Our Dose 2, and Booster Clinic will be held on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, from 9:00 – 2:45. Information on how to register for this clinic, 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 booster will also be available for families, staff and middle and high school students at the clinic. Please enter and exit through the Dining Room doors in the back of the school. Signs pointing you in the right direction will be in place.The VDH requests that you sign up, but walk-ins are definitely accepted, as well. There are enough appointment slots available for these walk-ins.

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. This Friday’s presenting class will be Beth Bradford’s Kindergarteners (who will be doing a live presentation in the gym for the parents) and “Guess Who” will be hosted by Sean Semler’s 4th graders.

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
1/241/251/261/271/281/31
2/12/22/32/72/82/9

One last reminder (and it’s an important one): The loop in front of the school should not be entered under any circumstances from 2:40 – 3:15. This area is strictly reserved for buses. Your adherence to this policy will ensure the safety of our students and all faculty on duty.

As always, 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
