What to Expect if We Have a COVID Case in the School. When a student or staff member identifies symptoms or exposure to someone with symptoms, we immediately begin a process called Contact Tracing. The current process has us identify anyone who was within 6 feet of that person for 15 minutes or more or was within the classroom for more than four hours with the sick person. We then follow the VT Dept. of Health guidelines and notify the close contacts of the requirements to quarantine and get tested. You can read the guidelines by visiting: https://www.healthvermont.gov/sites/default/files/documents/pdf/COVID-19-ContactTracing-Actions-School-Care.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2yFXtOQXBlTHq1LM2rTTqDhDQnwe2N-MBoNwfMhzMeicmS_Td8u3MA_tg
Our first early release day for the year will be THIS Friday, September 17th. Early release days will be a half day of school in the morning, and students will be sent home at lunch times. Exact times may vary by school and will be announced, but release will be roughly around 11:30 AM. Students will be given lunch at school or lunch will be sent home. We chose one Friday each month, as that seemed to be the best for parent work schedules and family schedules. Early release dates ➤ Sept 17, Oct 15, Nov 19, Dec 17, Jan 21, Feb 11, March 11, April 8, May 20.

We are repurposing some of our classroom furniture to replace adult sized furniture in our library with kid-friendly furniture. We now have an abundance of adult sized furniture that we would love to go to one of the organizations in Pittsford or a surrounding community. Please let me know if your organization is interested! We will need to move it at the end of the week. We have 2 large tables and 2 small tables. About 20 padded chairs and 12 unpadded. They should go in sets. email@example.com.
Free to a good home! Due to the generosity of the PTO purchasing Lothrop a portable keyboard, we are able to remove the piano from our small gym to provide more space for PE and our athletes and families. Contact Lothrop Principalfirstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
RNESU parent/student handbook is updated and ready! For everything you need to know, check out the District Handbook. Find contact information, policies, school hours and more at https://tinyurl.com/ssntwkrm.
