Dear Slate Valley Families, The Cross-State Travel map changed again today and many of the NY counties that border Vermont now require a 14 day quarantine if you travel there for non-essential activity. This includes Washington, Essex, Warren and Saratoga Counties. Please know that as a school district we are required to enforce these rules by the Department of Health. This means that if your child travels to any of these areas for non-essential activities such as but not limited to apple picking, dance lessons, sports, funerals, etc they will be required to quarantine and will not be allowed to attend school in person. If you have a question regarding this please call the Vermont Department of Health or visit the website https://accd.vermont.gov/covid-19/restart/cross-state-travel.

Dear Slate Valley Families, It was just announced in the Governor's Press Conference that Vermont schools will be allowed to operate in Stage III starting this Saturday, September 26th. For us in Slate Valley, this means that beginning this weekend we will be allowing athletic contests. Generally, speaking there are minimal changes between Stage II and Stage III in the school reopening guidance. As such, in all other areas we will be remaining status quo for the time being. We are doing well in no small part to the staff, students and community’s cooperation and we want to keep it that way. In the coming days and weeks I will be sending out further communication on changes you may see after 2 weeks in Stage III. I know that the cross-state travel map has been frustrating for some families and I completely understand. Please know that as a school district we are compelled to follow requirements put forth by the State of Vermont. The map is now being updated on Tuesdays so families can plan their activities for the coming weekend. Please note that Washington County, NY is now off the map. However, Warren and Saratoga Counties in NY are still on the map so please, please plan your travel accordingly. We do not want to be in a position of asking your child to remain home from in-person learning. This does not benefit anyone. If you have questions please refer to the website: https://accd.vermont.gov/covid-19/restart/cross-state-travel/faqs and/or call the Vermont Department of Health. Also, according to the Vermont Department of Health apple picking is a leisure activity. I know this was not clear to a lot of families over the weekend. Furthermore, we are so grateful for our school nurses. They truly have borne the brunt of the questions and enforcement of the COVID protocols. Please know that they must follow the guidelines put forth from the Vermont Department of Health and as such everyone is doing the best that they can in this difficult situation. As always, thank you for your continued support and cooperation during these trying times. Be well, Brooke Farrell, Superintendent

Dear Slate Valley Families, Thank you so very much for all of your patience and cooperation these last couple of weeks. The reopening of school has gone well due in no small part to all of your support. The cross-state travel map changed today and as such many of the counties that you may travel to in NY state are now on the travel restriction list. Please make sure to check this map if you are planning any travel out of state as it may impact your child's ability to attend school in person. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact your school administration. https://accd.vermont.gov/covid-19/restart/cross-state-travel Thank you and have a wonderful weekend! Best, Brooke Farrell, Superintendent

Day 1 in the books! Onto Day 2. Please check your students belongings, they should have brought home a blue card-stock form that will allow you to answer the screening questions and fill out answers prior to arrival. Fill out the card before coming to school or getting on the bus, bring the card, show it to screeners. Screeners will do a temp check and record it on the sheet and return the sheet to the student/caregiver for the next day. We hope this process speeds up arrival! Practice will make us better at this!

We successfully completed day one of school. Thank you for your patience and kindness! We recognize that arrival and dismissal are the trickiest times and we anticipated that. Please bear with us through this week as we have heard from many that may be changing their drop off and pick up plans. We want to see where things land before we make any changes on our end. In the morning walkers may not arrive before 7:50 All busses need to arrive and clear out before we can accept walkers safely. We ask that all students and adults follow the physical distancing expectations of 6 feet when waiting in line to get into the school. At dismissal, parent pick up is out back of our building beginning at 2:15, after the safe departure of our buses. Please be sure to check your child’s backpack for important paperwork that needs to be filled out and returned to school. Again, thank you for your support and patience and have a good evening!

Just a gentle reminder to show up at your time for dismissal as early arrivals could clog things up and slow down the process.

For day 1, we will have health check forms for screenings at school building doors and on busses with bus monitors. On day 1, your student should come home with a blue piece of card-stock that allows you to complete health checks prior to arrival and just show us the card at school. This piece of card-stock has enough room for health checks for a full month. So we will look at it and return it to caregiver/student for the next day. No need to panic if lost or forgotten, we will always have extras. If arriving by car out back, we will come to the car and do the screening before the student gets out of the vehicle. Having the students on the school side of the car will make this easiest and safest. Please let your children know the adults doing screenings will have masks and face shields and gloves, precautions to keep all as safe as possible! Lastly, a gentle reminder to all adults to wear masks also at these times and maintain distancing while waiting. Continued appreciation of all your support!!

Here is a reminder of the arrival and departure schedule. Departure may be one of the trickiest parts of the day. We ask that you arrive as close to the time assigned as you can.

Retirement Spotlight! This week, Slate Valley is celebrating a different retiree each day with a special retirement spotlight here on social media. Today, we are celebrating Chris Stanton’s 22 years of service in our district. Congratulations on your retirement Chris! Chris Stanton was a tremendous complement to Fair Haven Grade School, staff and community immediately upon arrival in 1998. He shared at the time that it was very difficult decision to leave Orwell Village School, his first teaching assignment, as he had created special bonds with students, parents and community during his time there. However, Chris brought these same attributes to Fair Haven and it was FHGS’ good fortune that he made the transition. Chris brought a myriad of talents and infectious interests to his teaching assignments. His first was as a self-contained grade 6 classroom teacher before moving to the middle school with the transition of 6th grade. Chris was always about Team whether it was his 5th and 6th grade team partners and later the middle school team. His thoughtful calm demeanor brought a stabilizing focus to every setting. BUT there are some that remember mischief afoot at times in the Kingdom. Chris always proclaimed innocence of these rumors so we will leave those stories for another day…. Chris’ work and interaction with students was equally special. He brought many things to FHGS including a strong interest to immerse kids in healthy environmental activities outside the four walls of a classroom. He fostered and expanded programs that took students to the outdoors and waterways in the Fair Haven – Castleton area. The Castleton Area River Program (later expanded to Great Adventure Program) connected hands on science in the region with the classroom. Chris made summer special for hundreds of students each year leading hiking trips and kayaking adventures on Glen Lake, Bomoseen and Lake Champlain. He will be remembered as a champion of environmental science and bringing science and math to life for his students. Learning through enriching activities made possible by Chris Stanton, Teacher and Mentor for all students. Chris’ goal was to retire quietly and unnoticed. However, your impact on the lives of students, families and your colleagues is appreciable and you will be greatly missed. By Deborah Infurna

Retirement Spotlight! This week, Slate Valley is celebrating a different retiree each day with a special retirement spotlight here on social media. Today, we are celebrating Karen Jockell's 17 years of service in our district. Congratulations on your retirement Karen! Karen Jockell’s 17 year teaching career at Fair Haven Grade School reflects her commitment and steadfast dedication to her students along with the classroom teachers she supported through her supplemental instruction. As a school wide teacher, her position required her to instruct students from multiple grade levels each day and maintain communication with their respective grade teachers for coordination of progress. It was one very important piece needed to generate successful results. To Karen’s credit she adeptly orchestrated this requirement to provide the instruction required of each student. Karen played an integral role in the learning process and progress for the students who passed through her classroom. Karen was also active in the school and community. She was a teacher and community member that recognized teaching and learning also happened outside the walls of a classroom. Applefest, Supermarket Bingo, and district student activities would find Karen involved and invested. She was an active member in the PTO, Impact Fair Haven, and a variety of district level committees working to better the support, resources and activities available to students and families. FHGS was extremely fortunate to have many years of Karen’s dedication and expertise serving her number one priority, students. We envision Karen continuing to be involved supporting children and teachers in some way in this community, even in retirement. By Deborah Infurna

Good evening. Tim Smith, chairman of the Slate Valley School District. I hope everyone is staying home and healthy in these difficult times. Many thanks to our health care providers. While difficult to discuss given the circumstances, I want to remind everyone that our school budget failed on Town Meeting Day by a small margin, 95 votes. The $59.5 million construction bond will be tabled for the foreseeable future, at least until the duration of the virus and its far-reaching impacts are better understood. Nonetheless, we are obligated to re-vote the school budget and hope to have a positive result by June 30th. While we continue to work with VT Govt officials, school administration, and town clerks, it is unclear at this time whether we will be holding an in-person vote by late spring or a mail-in vote. We will keep the public notified of any developments. Public participation is welcome at all of our meetings, however now, the ability of the public to attend is more challenging given the social distancing guidelines. In the past week, Governor Scott amended the open meeting laws whereby a physical location for the public to attend is no longer required. In the same manner that board members participate, the public is invited to attend our meetings in a virtual format. We are scheduled to have a Finance Committee on Monday 4/6 at 5:30pm, the link to attend is: https://meet.google.com/hus-roox-dkq?hs=122, dial in only 1-(502) 947-4166 PIN 781 639 980# We are scheduled to have a regular Board meeting on Monday 4/6 at 6:30pm, the link to attend is: https://meet.google.com/bzx-mcps-foo?hs=122, dial in only 1-(417) 647-1150 PIN 584 195 054# Information can also be found at the Slate Valley website, www.slatevalleyunified.org We appreciate your support and participation.

We ask that you complete the form and return it to the staff member distributing the meals so that we can get a better idea of who needs meals, but is unable to get to one of the schools listed above for pick up. If you are unable to pick up meals, we will make every effort to get the meals to you. This form will also be made available ​online: https://5il.co/dwgv Please note that you can go to any of the schools listed above. You are not restricted to the school that your child attends. Please notify staff at the pick up location if you will be picking up meals regularly and you have any special dietary needs that have medical implications that must be met.

We know that we are in the midst of uncertain times. Please know that we are doing everything within our power as a district to care for the well-being of staff, students and families. The Governor released a declaration today that stated that all students will be dismissed from school no later than Wednesday, March 18th. However, student attendance on Monday, March 16th and Tuesday March 17th is a family decision. Your child will not be penalized for staying home. As a district, in accordance with recommendations from the Department of Health, we are no longer allowing non-essential outside visitors into our school such as volunteers, guest speakers, parents, etc. We will be asking parents to pick up and drop off their students at the front door. If you need to pick up your child during the school day please call ahead to the main office and arrangements will be made to meet you at the front door. If you have a meeting scheduled with school personnel, please call ahead as we are making arrangements to host required meetings by phone or video. This includes Individual Education Program (IEP) meetings and evaluation planning and results meetings that are required by law. In addition, field trips and all after-school events are canceled from this point through at least April 6th. We are working on a plan to offer students at-home learning opportunities and access to a school meals program. We will be asking families whether or not you would like to receive meals while school is dismissed. I will be sending out further communication on this topic tomorrow. Thank you in advance for your support as we progress through these challenging times. Sincerely, Brooke Olsen-Farrell

Good afternoon, 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 provide you an update of the actions the Slate Valley Unified School District will take as it relates to Governor Scott's School Closure announcement. First and foremost, student attendance at school on Monday and Tuesday is a family decision. For these two days, Slate Valley Unified School District attendance procedures will be waived, and no student will be penalized for not attending. Your district leadership teams will be working with our employees to plan for the support of our students and families during the closure of school. To be clear, our primary areas of focus include the wellbeing of our students, families and employees. The plan that we are developing will strive to encompass all of the components that Governor Scott has referenced in his statement/press conference. 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 doing all we can to make sure these priorities are taken care of to the best of our abilities. Sincerely, Brooke Olsen-Farrell
