Health Reminder

The State of Connecticut has issued regulations regarding good health and well-being in our schools, which we continue to follow. We would like to keep everyone healthy while they are here. Please keep in mind that we have a few parents with suppressed immune systems. Keeping everyone healthy is so important for all of us. Thank you for your continued safe practices. We will keep you updated with what new regulations may be in place for the Fall, 2021. Please stay healthy, wash your hands and wear your mask. We have all done such a great job!

Many, Many Thanks!!!

Thank you all for a most wonderful year. I cannot even begin to tell you how grateful we are to each and every family. We are thankful to you for the opportunity to teach your child every day since September 4th… You have gone to great lengths to stay healthy, quarantine when necessary and helped us through this pandemic when we needed it most. A very special thank you to Maurya Brown, Bevin Cosgriff, Jennifer Hios, Maryse Jolicoeur, Angela Mazo, Maya Smith, Elizabeth Stern and Suzy van Hulst!


A big thank you to all the parents who gave their time to read to the children or do a craft outdoors. We appreciate your help so much!
