Dear Parents and Guardians:
I hope all of you have enjoyed your summer. School starts next Wednesday, August 25th for grades K-8. This year school starts at 7:40. Students in grades K-8 will start the day with breakfast in their classroom. The instructional day starts at 8:00. The school day ends at 2:50.
Parents/guardians do not have to be present at the bus stop each morning or walk their child to school. We all need to work together, and I feel confident if your child is sick that you will keep them home from school.
I have included the current ACEC COVID-19 Guidelines for you to review below. Please email me at email@example.com or call me at 796-3573 ext. 2 with any questions or concerns you may have.

The new sidewalk on Champlain Street by the middle school door has been completed. We are waiting for the new milk cooler for the cafeteria. When this arrives, there will be a new counter where students and adults get their meals.
