Greetings, Stanton Families: Happy 2022!
We are happy to have had a somewhat normal school year thus far. Having Trunk or Treat gave us the first opportunity in quite some time to connect with our families in person. Slowly but surely we see some semblance of normalcy, able to greet one another in person and welcome our families to meetings and gatherings that we customarily celebrate throughout the school year.
We also recognize that COVID cases have had a resurgence and we have had to quarantine some students. We want to assure you that we are always available to support you and your family during these times. If your child has to quarantine, please reach out with any questions or feedback so we can make the transition as smooth as possible. Classwork will be delivered though devices and/or materials will be provided from the classroom teacher.
Until brighter days arrive, I would like to draw your attention to some very important matters that have the potential to significantly impact your student’s growth and development, as well as their experience of school as a safe and positive place to learn.
Your continued support in these matters is greatly appreciated. Please remember:
● Send your child to school with clothing that is appropriate for the weather conditions. We will continue the practice of providing students opportunities to take socially-distanced mask breaks and recess out-of-doors. Please consider writing their name on coats and sweatshirts should they make their way to lost and found.
● During quarantine learning, please be sure that your child signs on to their device to complete and submit all work on a daily basis. (iReady’s requirement is 45 minutes in Math per week, and 45 minutes in Reading per week) as well as other reading and math work that may be sent home.
● Please, keep your child home if they exhibit any symptoms of COVID (fever, cough, sore throat, body aches)
Once again, we are here to support you, our Stanton community. Please feel free to call 860-823-4207, with any questions, needs, or concerns. My assistant, Mrs. VeraCruz, will make sure that you are directed to the staff member who can best assist you.
