    SCHOOL NEWS

    From Central Office: We continue to need substitutes in our schools. We need subs for teachers, paraprofessionals, and nurses. At this time, the requirements to be a substitute teacher have been eased. This is a great opportunity for college students who are pursuing a degree in education to get hands-on experience with children. If you are interested in applying or have questions, please contact Janet Terenzi at Central Office (860-379-8546) to begin the process.

    NEW! From Curriculum: CLEVER - Many students have used programs like Lexia and Dreambox this year.  Your child can continue using these programs throughout the summer.  Students will need to log into their Clever dashboard using their school username and password.  The link to the Clever login page can be found here or on our district website.  Be sure to check out the summer learning page to find other ways to keep your child learning throughout the summer, too!

    From the Health Room: Please arrange to pick up medication from the nurse's room on Friday, June 11, 2021. We will be dismissing at 1:00pm. Students are not permitted to carry medications. If you are unable to pick up medication on Friday please contact your school nurse.
