Dear Families:

This afternoon I posted a video message for the holiday season and also spoke about our COVID-19 plans for the new year. Please take a few minutes to watch the video on our school’s YouTube Channel.

Before we head into the December break, here are a few items of note:

  • Our school just posted a temporary grant-funded COVID-19 Support Staff position on Indeed. If you know of anyone with relevant medical experience and a desire to work 3-20 hours per week, please let them know about our ad on Indeed.  A brief summary of the position and direct link to apply is available on our website at this link: Please help us spread the word. 
  • The next session of the After Care program (run by the Berkshire Family YMCA and located at the Village School) will be available from January 3 – February 18 2022. Students who participated in the fall are not automatically being enrolled again, so please be sure to register your student for After Care if this is of interest. More information and a link for registration are available on our website at this link:
  • The Abbey Group posted its breakfast and lunch menus for January 2022 at this link:
  • COVID-19 Surveillance Testing will take place on Monday, January 3, 2022. We will resume regular Wednesday screenings on Wednesday, January 12th. 

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! I look forward to seeing your children back in school on January 3 for what will hopefully be a happy, healthy New Year! 

Warm regards,
