Now that the winter season is here, SVES would like to remind families of the morning parent drop off procedures. If you are dropping off a PK student, please park in a regular parking space and walk your student up to the cafeteria door. We would request that PK parents not park along the curb where other students are being dropped off. For all other K-4 students being dropped off, please pull up along the curb as far as you are able. Please avoid dropping off your child at the corner where the orange cones are placed. Thank you so much for your continued support and cooperation this year.

This is another reminder that if you ordered seeds through the FEDCO PTF SVES fundraiser your orders are ready for pick up. If you have not already picked up your order they are available for pickup curbside at 35 West Street in Newport. Also, please be looking for communication from your child(ren)'s teacher and/or on the remote learning sites about classroom virtual meetings next week. Each class will get an opportunity next week to have a virtual meeting with a teacher from the next grade level up that they will be moving to in the fall. Please be aware that the teacher they meet with is not necessarily his/her classroom teacher next year. This is a great chance to ask any questions they may have before summer vacation begins.

This message is intended for the parents of SVES fourth grade students. Due to the physical closure of our school building, we are unable to conduct our normal end of year celebrations with our fourth grade students. In an effort to make the end of the year special, we would like to put together a video montage for these students. We are asking that parents email photos of your fourth grade child to Mrs. Donahue, at ldonahue@rsu19.net to be included in the slideshow. By providing the photos, you are giving permission for them to be published in an online format. We are also asking that if anyone's physical address has changed since filling out an emergency card, that you update us of those changes.
