Dear K-6 Parent/Guardian,

We are pleased to announce that online registration is open for the 2020-2021 school year. At this time, we are planning to reopen the Village School for in-person instruction, with enhanced physical distancing. The first official day of school will be Tuesday, September 8th.

In order for us to prepare for the best and safest experience for students and staff, students need to be registered for school by August 14.

The school will reopen in model A or B, as described below. Our decision will be made based on student enrollment numbers, new guidance expected from the Vermont Agency of Education, and the virus conditions in our local area in the coming weeks.

A.) A hybrid model in which students will be split into two cohorts with two days in school, two days distance learning, and everyone distance learning for one day; or,

B.) A cohorting model in which everyone will be in school at the same time, all day and cohorting, with enhanced physical distancing four days a week, and a fifth day of distance learning for all students. Off-campus classroom extension sites may be utilized around the Village.

Importantly, if in-person learning is not medically advised or is not the best option for your student(s) or family, you can choose the distance-learning only option when registering your student(s)Transitioning to in-person instruction later in the year will be possible for distance-learning students, but families will need to allow up to two weeks for the change to take place.

Online registration is confidential and secure. If you completed the online registration last year, you will find that your entries from last year are pre-filled in this year’s form.

Online Registration can be completed in three easy steps:

1. Gather all of your student’s registration information, including information for at least two emergency contacts, names and phone numbers of medical professionals, and the dates of recent doctor and dentist visits. It is important to gather this information beforehand, as you will need to complete the registration process in full once you begin. If you stop or log out, your information will NOT be saved and you will need to start again. You CAN register one student, click submit and then return later to register additional students.

2. Go to TeacherEase.com and login using your email and password. Once logged in, you will be prompted to complete the online registration. If you forgot your password, follow the onscreen prompts to reset it. If you are still unable to login, please email info@vsnb.org.

3. Complete the registration and click SUBMIT. Please verify that all of your student’s pre-filled information is correct, make any necessary changes and complete any new fields. Once you have completed all mandatory fields—marked with an asterisk (*)—you will be able to click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the last tab. You must complete this step in order to save your data.

For the most user-friendly experience, we recommend using a computer or tablet, not a smartphone. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us at info@vsnb.org or 802-442-5955

Please expect to receive updates and additional information from us in the weeks ahead. On behalf of the Village School faculty and staff, we look forward to welcoming your student(s) back to school!
