Dear Parent/Guardian, On March 17, 2020 Slate Valley educators provided students with review and/or enrichment material, and/or information for new learning assuming everyone would return to school on April 6th. As Vermont is experiencing a school closure for the remainder of the year, Slate Valley educators are preparing to move students forward with grade-level expectations in pursuit of Proficiencies and Performance Indicators upon our return from vacation, April 20, 2020. Please read the full letter here: https://5il.co/eqcz

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. Be well.
Thank you to all of our FHGS families for their patience and perseverance. Wishing everyone a safe weekend!
First Grade Families: Chrome books are now available for all FHGS first graders. If you wish to pick up a chrome book for your student to use for learning through the rest of the school year, they will be available at the back of the school (FHGS) on Tuesday between 10 and 12. If you are not able to come at this time, please call us to make alternate arrangements. Be well!
