Weekly Update from Mrs. Sawyer!
Posted by Kondel Geoff on 9/24/2020
Hello Hoosac Valley Elementary Families,
We made it through our first week! Thank you all again so much for the time and effort you are putting into helping us navigate this new system of educating children. I know I have spoken to many of you over the past week and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the efforts you are putting forth. I am so proud of all of our students and their families for making this week a success! Here are some updates, notes and reminders for the upcoming week. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
There are some additional updates for the meals program here at HVES. As I announced on Thursday, lunches will be picked up at the school bus parked in the Elk’s parking lot beginning on Monday, 9/21 between 11:!5-12:30. Additionally, the Superintendent has just announced that meal delivery will begin on Monday 9/21. If you are unable to pick up your child’s meal at the Elk’s, please click here for details about delivery! I’m very excited that this service is in place for our families!
