ALL students will be learning remotely from January 4th-January 15th.

January 8, 2021

Dear Moose Community,

2021 has arrived. Its arrival has brought some devastating and heavy national events. The Union 28 Leadership Team crafted a letter to our communities with a statement and some resources that can help support you in your discussions or question answering with your children. We will reattach the letter HERE for your convenience. Our strength as a kind and supportive school community feels more important and valuable than ever. Thank you. 

As we are all aware, our entire school is remote learning until January 15th, as we ensure the health and safety of students and staff after the break and holidays. The Board of Health has informed us (this morning) that the current COVID case count in Shutesbury is 3 positive cases isolating and 3 close contacts in quarantine. Early next week we will be reaching out to the older grades around family decisions on choosing hybrid learning or remote learning for their students. Currently, our hybrid schedule is 8:30-11:30 in person and 12:30/1:00- 3:10 remote learning each day (except Wednesdays). More information around logistics and possible starting dates for each grade will be communicated next week. 

Our 1st grade paraeducator, Val Wisniewski is retiring! Val has worked at SES for the last 7 years. She has been an educator in the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. Val's experience teaching early elementary school students, her lessons on nature and tracking and her love and compassion for our students will be very missed. Congratulations Val! 

Over the break we had two contactless water filling stations installed at SES! Students and staff will now be able to fill water bottles easily without having to touch a shared source. This is helpful in COVID times, but will also be awesome in "normal times"!
