Happy Friday SRES Families!

Our first week of full days went very smoothly and we continue to be able to take advantage of our outdoor learning spaces.  SRES students are absolutely the BEST; we are so proud of their engagement both at home and at school!

Updates:

  • SRES is pleased to announce that we have established two ways students can get help when working remotely.   That said, it is important to know that teachers are NOT available to support students during the day as they are teaching in-person students.  If your child needs help when working remotely, below are two ways to get help:

    • Google Classroom Help Desk:  On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays we will have a live Help Desk for students working remotely who need help with their work and/or who have technology questions.  The Help Desk hours are 9-10am and 1-2pm.  (Please note:  the link only works during those hours.) Students can find the link to join the Help Desk Meet under their Classwork tab.   If there is a need, we hope to be able to increase this time in the near future. 

    • Classroom Office Hours:  ALL classroom teachers have office hours on Wednesdays.  This is when students can join the Meet and get help and/or ask questions from their classroom teacher.

      • Ms. Taylor: 9:30-10:30

      • Mrs. White: 10:30-11:30

      • Ms. Herman: 10-11

      • Mrs. Bazin: 10-11

      • Mrs. Douglass:10-11

  • A friendly reminder about Wednesdays:  Wednesdays are a “deep cleaning” day.  Only our maintenance staff are in the building.  If you have a question or need support from the office, please email me (laura.hazard@wnesu.com) or Josh (josh.aberman@wnesu.com). Thank you.

  • Students will be participating in the MAP (Measured Academic Progress) assessment next week; one assessment (math/reading) each day that they are in school.  Please make sure they get a good night's sleep and either have breakfast at home or school each day.  Thank you for doing your part to make sure they do their best!

  • Safety drills next week:  We will have our first safety drills (evacuation and modified lock down) next week per state regulations.  The more we practice, the safer we will be!

  • Is your child interested in playing soccer?  If so, please see the attachment for more information from the Rec about Saxtons River Soccer!  SAXTONS RIVER SOCCER REGISTRATION 2020 flyer.docx 

  • SRES’ PTO will meet the 3rd Wednesday at 4pm via Zoom.  The link will be posted prior to the meeting.

  • River Valley Credit Union has temporarily suspended its School Savings Program given COVID-19.  Please see the attachment for details.  nlgaaaophnoafmpl.png 

Enjoy the weekend!  Will you go apple picking?  Stack wood?  Go for a hike?  Whatever you do, have fun as a family!!
