Hello Twin Valley Elementary School!

 

I hope that this email finds you well.  I wanted to take a moment and remind all of you that we are coming up on spring break April 20-24.  Remember to take the time to slow down for a moment, we have all been going nonstop since we began e-learning. During this time, meals will still be served.  There are some changes in the menu.  I have attached a copy and It will be posted on facebook.

Some of you may be struggling during this time and I wanted to share a helpful resource for Southern VT with you.  There are lists of agencies that can help with almost anything you can imagine.  Check it out if you are in need of ANYTHING!

The last thing I wanted to let you all know about is Wings.  Wings is launching the April Blast Virtual Program Camp next week! Take a look at the April Blast Flyer to check out the incredible online program offerings they have. Sign up for your FREE programs ASAP on the registration form.  You can also visit  wingscommunityprograms.com for more information. The Wings crew made a fun video, you can watch the Wings Misses You video to see how much they are missing all of you and hope to "see" you next week!

 

Enjoy the signs that spring and warmer days are upon us.

Greetings Families and Guardians,

 

Reach up and give yourself a big pat on the back.  The WSWSU staff is grateful for all you have done and will continue doing to support our students.  We acknowledge the many challenges that remote learning has presented, and we know there have been constant changes.  You are doing AWESOME! 

 

Attached you will find a copy of the WSWSU Guidelines & Expectations for Parents for Continuity of Learning.  This important document outlines the upcoming changes as we move from maintenance of learning to continuity of learning for the remainder of the year.  The document has some critical information about our changing belief system, attendance, learning expectations, grade level advancement, communication, and daily learning times.  Engagement of a majority of students each day the remainder of the school year is required by the State in order for these days to count in our school calendar. We are committed to supporting you and your students(s) in this challenging time.  Expectations for schools keep shifting so there could be changes in this document in the future. We will communicate with you if that happens.

 

Everything in these guidelines is designed with health, safety, relationships and equity as our priorities. Come what may in this time, our commitment to you and your child(ren) will persist.

 

Sincerely,

WSWSU Administrative Team

Greetings Twin Valley Family this is Principal Becca Fillion I want to inform you that Governor Scott announced this evening a directive stating “schools for pre-k-12 students shall remain dismissed for in-person instruction for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, unless otherwise ordered by the Governor.” I understand that you may have many questions at this time. I don’t have any detailed information now, but our Task Force will continue to learn as much as we can, and I will continue to share the best of our knowledge about how to continue to support you and our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move forward together in serving the needs of the Twin valley students. Our hope is for everyone to remain healthy, connected, resilient, and that we can find moments of peace during this time of uncertainty.

Please

 Students! We are all looking for ways we can be together and spread some joy during this time
when we are at home.
Here is one way you can do that:
Volunteers are collecting cards to send to people who could use some joy right now.
Can you help us make the cards?
We are looking for two kinds:
Cards to say just hello and cheer up someone who is in the hospital or a nursing home and not
able to have visitors.
Cards to thank the people who are working really hard right now out in the community helping
(like nurses, doctors, grocery store clerks, post office workers, and the staff who are making
and delivering our school meals).
When you have made some cards, you can either give them to your school bus driver who is
bringing you daily meals, or if you are not receiving meals, you can ask your parent to drop
them off in a collection box when they go out shopping. Boxes are at Shaw’s and River Bend
Market.
More details: please don’t put the cards in sealed envelopes. Volunteers will need to sort them
to send out to the places who have asked for them.
Please only do this activity if everyone in your house is feeling well. If anyone in your house is
sick, you could take a picture of your card and email it to Angel Balch
(vtpiggiebarbie@gmail.com) and we’ll figure out how to share it virtually

 Meal Delivery Information

Posted March 19, 2020

A reminder that meal deliveries are starting today. We had an amazing response and we'd love to serve more. The buses will be running normal children pick up routes with a four hour delay. So a bus that normally picks up at 7:00 am will be delivering meals at 11:00 am. Please be ready or have your children ready with a meal count, lunch milk choice, and state any allergies to your delivery person. The delivery person will bring your meals out to you. Thursday and Friday will provide for better delivery time expectations for Monday! Thank you to our amazing community for taking advantage of this program.

Information on school closings click here - No School Monday March 16th until further notice

Posted March 15, 2020

Sunday, March 15, 2020 Dear WSWSU Families, Employees and Community, We find ourselves in a rapidly changing, uncharted situation. We are grateful for the guidance and support that we have received from the Vermont Department of Health, the Vermont Agency of Education, and the Governor’s Office. On March 15 at 3:20 p.m., Governor Scott announced that statewide school closure will occur no later than Wednesday, March 18, 2020. The purpose of this message is to update you on the actions the WSWSU will take as it relates to Governor Scott's School Closure announcement. All WSWSU district schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th, until further notice. Teachers and school staff are not expected to report to work on Monday so that administrators and the Task Force can further plan. By the end of the day Monday, we will give teachers and staff direction around working the remainder of the week and how we expect them to plan for the continuity of their students’ learning and/or how they will support students’ continuity of learning. The wellbeing of our students, families and employees is a priority. As such, the plan that we are developing will strive to encompass all of the components that Governor Scott has referenced in his statement/press conference. I recognize that closing is extremely difficult for many of our families, as well as our community as a whole. Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we move forward. You can expect regular communication from our district so that we are keeping you informed. We are committed to doing all we can to make sure these priorities are taken care of to the best of our abilities. Sincerely, Barbara Anne Komons-Montroll Superintendent of WSWSU
